Ingredients

For the Pavlova

4 egg whites

1/4 cup swerve confectioners

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon cream or tartar

1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

Pinch of salt

For the Topping

Chopped berries of your choice

Fresh whip cream

Liquid stevia

Squeeze of lemon

Preparation

To Make the Pavlova

Preheat oven to 250F.

Add the egg whites to a clean and dry bowl of a stand mixer and whip using a whisk attachment.  Once they are frothy, add in the cream of tartar and continue mixing.

When they reach soft peaks, slowly start adding the swerve and beat until they reach stiff peaks.

Add in the vanilla and continue beating until the vanilla is mixed in.

Transfer the batter to a piping bag with a star tip (or ziplock bag) and pipe out pavlova’s onto a baking sheet lined with a Silapt or parchment paper.

Pipe into a circle about  4″ in diameter and pipe a rim around the edges to create a well in the centers.

Bake for 30 minutes, then lower the temperature to 200F and bake for an additional 15 minutes.  Turn the oven off and keep the pavlova’s in the oven for 30 minutes or until they are firm and crisp.  The very center will be slightly chewy, but if you want them crisp all the way through, keep them in the oven for an hour instead.  Serve with some homemade whip cream and fresh berries over the tops.

For the Topping

Squeeze the lemon over the chopped berries and set aside.

Whip some heavy cream with a few drops of liquid stevia.

Add a dollop of the whip cream over the tip of the pavlova, then top with the berries and serve.
