Low Sugar Berry Pavlova

Looking for a delicious dessert that won’t spike your blood pressure? This Low Sugar Berry Pavlova is perfect for you. Now, if you’ve ever been caught in the (more or less) friendly rivalry between Australia and New Zealand over who really invented pavlova, you know this classic dessert is a serious business. But no matter who gets the credit, we’re all winners here with this healthier twist!

Traditionally, pavlova is a sweet meringue base, topped with whipped cream and fresh fruit. Our version swaps out the high sugar content and heavy cream for reduced sugar and Greek yoghurt, keeping all the delightful textures and flavours without the guilt. It’s like a taste of heaven without the sugar rush!

Loaded with mixed berries, this dessert not only satisfies your sweet tooth but also packs a punch of antioxidants and protein, making it a heart-healthy treat. So whether you’re managing high blood pressure or just looking for a lighter dessert option, this Low Sugar Berry Pavlova is set to become your new favourite. And who knows, you might just settle the pavlova debate in your own kitchen – one bite at a time!


Ingredients:

  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 cup (220g) reduced sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Mixed berries: Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries (about 2 cups)
  • 1 cup (250g) Greek yoghurt
  • Lemon zest 

Method:

  1. Preheat your oven to 120°C (250°F). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a clean, dry bowl, begin whipping the egg whites until they start to foam and form soft peaks.
  3. Add the cream of tartar to the egg whites and continue whipping until soft peaks form.
  4. Gradually add the reduced sugar, one tablespoon at a time, while continuing to beat until stiff, glossy peaks form. Add the vanilla extract and beat briefly to combine.
  5. Spoon the meringue onto the prepared baking sheet, shaping it into a large circle about 20 cm (8 inches) in diameter or into individual nests, depending on your preference.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 1.5 hours. Turn off the oven and let the meringue cool completely inside the oven with the door slightly ajar.
  7. Once the meringue is cool, top it with Greek yoghurt and a generous amount of mixed berries. Add lemon zest on top.
  8. Serve immediately and enjoy this healthy, delicious dessert that supports heart health while satisfying your sweet tooth!

The Recipe to Keep Low Blood Pressure:


  • Egg Whites: High in protein and low in calories, egg whites help build and repair body tissues. They also provide a light, airy texture to the meringue.
  • Reduced Sugar: Lowers the calorie content and reduces the risk of blood sugar spikes, making it suitable for managing blood pressure and overall heart health.
  • Vanilla Extract: Adds flavour without adding extra calories or sugar, enhancing the taste of the desert.
  • Mixed Berries: Rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and fibre, berries help reduce inflammation and improve heart health. They add natural sweetness and vibrant colour to the pavlova.
  • Greek Yoghurt: High in protein and probiotics, Greek yoghurt aids in digestion and provides a creamy texture. It’s a healthier alternative to whipped cream, supporting weight management and overall health.
  • Lemon Zest: Adds a fresh, citrusy flavour and contains vitamin C, which supports the immune system and enhances the dessert's taste.
