  1. Preheat the oven to 400º F (200º C).
  2. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  4. When the egg whites are ready, add the erythritol little by little and keep beating until well combined. Add the vinegar, vanilla, and salt. Mix well.
  5. Using a piping bag full of the meringue mixture, or a spoon, carefully form the meringue bases on top of the parchment paper.

  8. Whip the cream until it forms soft peaks.
  9. Fill the meringue bases with the whipped cream and decorate with raspberries.

    Hi there DD team, I'm taking these to a family gathering, if stored in an airtight container do you think I'll be able to prepare the meringues in advance? How long would they last? Thanks!

    I have made one large round from a different recipe at fatforweightloss.com and left it on the counter uncovered o/n. Great the next day. Trick is to keep them from getting soft so I don't cover and it was still very crisp the next day.

    I feel bad for the eggs I used to make this pavlova. Inedible. Yes I am on keto and used to sweetener, and no it wasn’t down to my baking skills. It looks great If there’s any positive, but you want it to at least taste good too. The search continues.
