Strawberry Meringues

Makes 2 Servings

Ingredients

– 6 egg whites
– 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
– 2 cups sliced strawberries
– 2 tbsp Splenda
– 4 scoops vanilla or strawberry protein powder

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F.
2. In a large mixing bowl, beat 6 egg whites and 1/4 tsp of cream of tartar with an electric mixer on medium-high speed, until the egg whites become fluffy and hold stiff peaks.
3. Scoop this mixture out into two large ball-like portions on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
4. With the back of a large spoon, depress the middle of each portion to form a pocket (this is where the fruit will go).
5. Bake in the oven until the mixture turns light golden brown, between 5 and 10 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside to let cool.
6. Cut up 2 cups of strawberries and mix in a bowl with Splenda. Add the protein powder to this mixture, 1 scoop at a time, mixing well. Once these dry ingredients are mixed together, add water – 1 tbsp at a time – until the mixture becomes creamy.
7. Pour the strawberry mixture into the meringue pockets, letting it flow over the sides. Serve cool.
