This Keto Meringue with summer berries is a simple low carb dessert that makes the most of berry season. It’s a healthy dessert that is also low calorie!
This keto meringue with summer berries is pretty, it’s simple, and it tastes amazing – what else could you ask for in a low carb dessert?
The bright flavor of the berries is the perfect accompaniment to the pillowy soft meringue topping – every bite tastes like Summer. As far as it being super simple, it doesn’t get a whole lot easier than this.
This keto meringue recipe has two simple components – the berries, and the meringue. I used xanthan gum in my meringue and it really helped it hold it’s shape and stay pillowy and soft in the center.
It did get crispy on the outside, which I love. But humidity is the enemy of crispy anything, and it doesn’t take long for them to turn soft.
If you want to serve them crisp, get them to the table ASAP, right out of the oven.
So here’s how this is going to go down. Start with an assortment of fresh summer berries. You can use any berry in these keto meringues but strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, or a combination of all three are my favorite!
Wash and slice them up, then toss with a little of the sweetener of your choice – or omit it altogether if your berries are super sweet on their own.
Then you’re going to add your berries to individual ramekins or one large baking dish for your keto meringue.
Whip your keto meringue and pipe or spoon it over the berries.
I wanted an easy, rustic look, so I dolloped it on and left some of the berries peeking through.
Bake the keto meringue with berries in a 300 degree oven for about 40 minutes, or until crisp – ideally you want it to dry out but stay white, a feat I have not yet been able to accomplish.
Mine always seem to get somewhat golden, which doesn’t affect the flavor at all, it’s just not as striking against the berries as bright white would be.
Remove from the oven and serve.
Not to mention beautiful, and loaded with Summer flavors. Perfect for your next celebration or occasion!
