Berry Meringue Baskets (Keto)

Keto Berry Meringue Baskets

Funnyman and I don’t make a big deal of our keto journey (unless asked). When hosting, I simply make exact versions of the desserts I serve my guests and serve as normal, making sure we get the keto-friendly versions (this is mainly due to artificial sweeteners which not everyone has a taste for). This past summer, when making little berry meringue baskets for my guests, I whipped up a sugar-free version for  us. While my rustic meringue baskets weren’t snow-white like the store-bought versions my guests received, they were still pretty damn tasty and hit the sweet spot. If you prefer to make a mess of this (I mean, to literally make a Berry Mess), simply use the Mini Meringues recipe and mix it all together just before serving… (as opposed to making a pretentious, deconstructed version like I have done here by piping them into baskets…)

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 110°C / 230°F.
  2. Add the egg whites, sweetener, cream of tartar and vanilla essence to a clean bowl. Use a mixer to whip to stiff peaks.
  3. Gently spoon the mixture to a piping bag fitted with a medium-size nozzle. Prepare a large tray lined with baking paper and proceed to pipe a solid disc approximately 10cm / 4-in in diameter, followed by a second pipe on only the outer edges, creating a ‘basket’. Repeat the process until you have 6 baskets. Place the trays into the oven for 20 minutes. (Use up any leftover meringue mix to make mini meringue bites - link in headnote.)
  4. After 20 minutes, without opening the oven doors, reduce the oven to 100°C / 210°F and bake for another 25 minutes.
  5. Again, without opening the oven door, switch the oven off and allow the meringues to cool completely.
  6. After approximately 2 hours, remove the meringues and store in an airtight container until ready to finish the dessert.

  7. Whip the cream and Swerve® to semi-stiff peaks. Spoon the cream into the baskets and top with the berries. Dust a little confectioner’s sweetener on and serve.

In short, you need not subtract anything further.
