Steps to follow:


The first step in learning how to make sugar-free meringue is to separate the egg whites from the yolks, to make sure your meringues will have the right consistency when following our recipe.


Next, beat the egg whites until frothy, add the sweetener and beat the mixture using an electric mixer for best results.


When your mixture for sugar-free meringues has been mixed well, put into a piping bag and find an oven-proof baking tray. The best way to achieve that typical meringue shape, is to squeeze out small amounts of the mixture onto the tray.


Finally, take the tray of sugar-free meringues and put into the oven to cook. Let it cook with the oven door slightly open for approximately 40 minutes at 100ºC. It is important to monitor the meringues while they are cooking to prevent them from burning.


When they are ready, take the tray out of the oven and leave the sugar-free meringue to cool at room temperature. If you wish to make your meringues a bit different and original, you can add in a little cinnamon powder for a delicious taste. Enjoy!

I want to use Swerve instead of sugar. Will the egg whites whip up?

Hi Judith,

You can beat the eggs to create the meringue, but the sugar acts as a stabilizer. This means it helps keep its body and texture. We haven't used Swerve, but it appears to be made from a type of sugar alcohol which could perform the same function. You would have to try it out.
