Calorie Conscious Swirled Meringues

About the bake

These pretty Calorie Conscious Meringues are a lovely light dessert and can be served with fresh yoghurt and refreshing summer berries or fruit of your choice. You could even add a handful of blitzed pistachios to your meringue mix to create a delicious nutty taste and texture. Not sure how to get stiff peaks? Have a look at the video above.

  1. Step 1:

    Preheat the oven to 160°C (140°C fan, 325°F, gas mark 3).

  2. Step 2:

    Place the sugar in a food processor and blitz until it reaches the consistency of icing sugar.

  3. Step 3:

    Whisk the egg whites until they form soft peaks – the peaks should turn at the tip.  Gradually whisk in the sugar until the mix is glossy then whisk in the cream of tartar and corn flour.

  4. Step 4:

    Add a few drops of pink food colouring and use a skewer to swirl the colour through the meringue to get a marble effect.

  5. Step 5:

    Spoon the egg whites on to the baking parchment making a slight dent in the mixture and bake for 1 hours. After an hour switch the oven off and leave the meringues in the oven until it cools.

  6. Step 6:

    When ready to serve. Fill the meringues with the berries or fruit of your choice and add a dollop of low fat cream, crème fraiche or yoghurt.
