It's surprisingly easy to make crispy sweet meringues without sugar. Compared to the original meringue recipe that calls for 6 egg whites and 250 g of sugar, I only used a small amount of natural low-carb sweetener which resulted in light, airy and crispy texture - don't expect them to be as dense as regular meringues. Depending on the recipe you are planning to use them for, you can make several small or one large meringue - just perfect for a summer berry Pavlova or Eton Mess!
Apart from different sizes, meringues can be baked in to different ways. You can either bake them until light and crispy or soft and "marshmallowy". It depends on the recipe. In this recipe, I made them crispy. However, if you want to use the meringue in a Raspberry or Strawberry Meringue Pie, you should only bake it until the inside is just set and the outside lightly browned. I even created a more traditional version, Lemon Meringue Tartlets for my cookbook so don't forget to check it out :-)

Ingredients (makes ~ 24 meringues)
If making soft meringue for pie topping, you may want to follow the recipe instead - it's slightly different and more suitable for a soft meringue. When looking for ingredients, try to get them in their most natural form (organic, without unnecessary additives).
