More egg recipes: Easter Meringue Cups and other low calorie meringue desserts
Posted Apr 09 2009 12:00am
You think I was joking when I posted last week that I was thinking of making a meringue dessert recipe. Well, since I bought more eggs (I just cannot resist 50% off brown organic eggs) I am very tempted to try this recipe from Taste of Home’s “Light Dessert of the Week” email newsletter for Easter Meringue Cups.
However, my plan is to make several substitutions to lower the calories. Instead of lemon curd, I will use sugar free, no fat instant lemon or vanilla pudding.
Fruit-wise, I bought 4 pounds of strawberries yesterday. (I love any fruit where 1 1/2 cups is only 1 Weight Watchers POINT). Plus I have some defrosted berries from last summer’s blackberry crop. So, I’ll use a combo of blackberries and strawberries, and forgo the sugary pineapple and mandarin oranges.
Or maybe I’ll forget about the fruit and just nosh on the meringue…messy but yummy!
