Tea Party Pavlovas

Recipe type: Tea Party, dessert
Serves: 8
 
Green tea is rich in antioxidants, and research shows that people who regularly consume it may have a lower risk of heart disease, cancer, and other conditions. Personally, I love a good cup of Lipton with a splash of milk!
Ingredients
  • 4 large egg whites
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 to 1¼ cups 2%-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • Drizzle of agave
  • A few pinches of lemon zest
  • Diced fresh fruit such as berries, grapes, and mango, optional
Instructions
  1. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. Draw four, 4-inch circles on each piece of paper, and then turn the paper over. Set aside.
  2. Combine the egg whites and cream of tartar in a large bowl and beat on medium speed until frothy. Gradually add the sugar, one tablespoon at a time, beating until whites stand in stiff, glossy peaks, about 10 minutes. Beat in the vanilla extract.
  3. Preheat oven to 250°. Divide the meringue evenly among the 8 drawn circles. Shape into nests with half-inch sides using the back of a spoon.
  4. Bake 1 hour, rotating baking sheets halfway through. Turn oven off, and cool meringues in closed oven for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely. Place the Greek yogurt in a bowl and mix in the agave and lemon zest until well combined. Fill each meringue evenly with the Greek yogurt mixture and top with fruit as desired.
