Strawberry Pavlova Recipe

Strawberry Pavlova Recipe by Chantelle Fehr

Yields 12 servings

So light and delicious, perfect for summer!

Ingredients:

Meringue

  • 2 c. Cold Egg whites (chill in the fridge until right before mixing)
  • ½ tsp. Cream of Tartar
  • 2 ½ c. Sugar

Filling

  • 4 ½ c. Whipping Cream
  • ½ c. Icing Sugar (confectioner’s sugar)
  • 4 c. Strawberries, quartered
  • 2 c. lemon yogurt (or your favorite flavor)
  • 6 Whole Strawberries for garnish
  • ½ c. blueberries for garnish

Directions:

The Meringue

  1. Preheat your oven to 300 F
  2. In your stand mixer or a large bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar on high until stiff peaks begin to form.
  3. While it is still whipping, gradually add sugar. Once sugar is all added, whip for another 5 minutes until it becomes glossy and smooth.
  4. Line 2 cookie sheets (or one huge cookie sheet) with parchment paper.
  5. Form 2 round circles of meringue about 7-8” wide on each cookie sheet. If using one large cookie sheet (one that fills the entire oven rack at once), make two circles leaving space in the middle and sides for it to expand.
  6. Bake for 2 ½-3 hours until each meringue doubles in size. Let cool.

The Filling

  1. 1. Beat cream and icing sugar in a mixer or large bowl on medium high speed until stiff peaks form.

Putting it Together

  1. Place 1 meringue on your platter of choice. Using roughly ¾ of the whipping cream mixture spread it on the meringue, pushing more to the edges and creating a well in the middle.
  2. Place quartered strawberries and yogurt in the well you created in step 1.
  3. Place the other meringue on top, pour remaining whip cream on top.
  4. Top with blueberries and remaining strawberries.
