Skinny Pavlova in a Glass

Well it is a Pavlova…it’s just easier. This is Skinny Pavlova the 10 minute Hack!.

Why?. because it is so easy and it tastes just like Pavlova but in a glass. It makes sense doesn’t it.?

You can eat this summer or winter.  You can eat it late at night or when you have a whole troupe of Pavlova munching friends around.

There’s a bit of sugar involved with the meringue of course, but the other ingredients are nice skinny substitutes. Have a whole dessert and go back for another. Actually I made 4 and ate two for breakfast. That’s wrong and defeats the purpose of a “skinny” dessert but I couldn’t waste these, they were too delicious.

The secret is the vanillery creamy low fat ricotta filling. Use what ever fruit you like, I used frozen raspberries to make a lovely “sauce ” and plenty of strawberries and peaches. Obviously passionfruit would be the perfect addition because it is a classic Pavlova accompaniment.

Call them what ever you like, but in Australia they are a no- bake Skinny Pavlova that you can whip up in 10 minutes. I made my own meringue but I suggest you buy the nice crispy nests you can get hold of at the store. For a meringue recipe try this one.

When I was a kid my Mother hated cooking, I know I have explained that to you , but I’ve never actually told you that she completely loved design and decorating – that was her thing. She had a real flare for it.  But cooking, well she always wanted the quick way out. Pavlovas had gone through a bit of the industrial revolution like much of the food in the 70’s and she embraced it. Each time a dessert was required she bought a plastic container in the shape of an egg, it was filled with powdered meringue that just needed to be whipped with water to make a foolproof Pavlova. That was my Mum’s idea of cooking. This would be her idea of cooking too she would love this.
