Ingredients

Meringue

100g egg whites
¼ tsp cream of tartar
30g Vitafiber powder
1 tsp vanilla extract

Strawberry sauce

250g fresh strawberries

Strawberry cream fluff

200ml Carb Killa® Shake, Strawberries and Cream
150g frozen strawberries
40g Hydra 6® protein powder, Strawberry Siege
3g Xanthan Gum (optional)

Method

Meringue

1) Start by preheating the oven to 100°C and prepare two baking sheets with baking paper
2) Next, whisk the egg whites until frothy then add the cream of tartar. Then, add the Vitafiber to the egg mix in three parts while still whisking
3) Add the vanilla extract, while continuing to whisk – the egg whites should form stiff peaks
4) Use a tablespoon to scoop the mix onto the baking tray, separating it into several small blobs
5) Bake in the oven for approximately 80 minutes. Once the time is up, turn off the oven but leave the meringues in the oven to cool for around 6 hours or over night

Strawberry sauce

1) First, blitz half of the strawberries in a blender until smooth
2) Chop the remaining strawberries into small pieces and combine with the puree
3) Once done, place in the fridge until use

Strawberry cream fluff

1) Blitz all of the ingredients in a food processor for around 3-5 minutes until it increases in volume – it should be a thick, fluffy consistency

Once all of these steps are complete, it’s time to create your Eton Mess desserts! Take four dessert bowls or dishes and spoon the strawberry cream fluff into each bowl. Then, spoon on the strawberry sauce and add more of the fluff. Finish by topping with broken pieces of meringue and devour!
