A classic British Dessert
Since I announced that I was done with OMAD, I have been hard at work on new recipes. I know that nothing excites people as much as Keto Dessert recipes do, so I started brainstorming. My wife Deepti made a trial Keto meringue recipe, there was heavy cream and strawberries in the fridge and berries in the freezer. So I set out to make a dessert and even posted a picture on my Instagram stories. I whipped the cream and added in some of the strawberries, layered that with the meringue and made a berry puree like I did for the berry swirl cheesecakse. Little did I know that I had just created Eton Mess. Today’s recipe is my Keto Eton Mess. Enjoy
Berry Berry Nice
In my video I decided to skip the berry puree and garnish with half a strawberry and keep it more classic. I also accidentally set the oven at 175C instead of 120C which resulted in my meringue browning quite a bit, so if yours doesn’t get any colour after 30 minutes at 120C just give it 2-3 minutes at 175C to get some colour. I also recommend getting yourself a Silpat for baking the meringue on and in general for hassle free baking, if you can’t then parchment paper will suffice. Anyway I hope you enjoy the recipe. If you aren’t into creamy fruity desserts you can always try my Keto Coffee and Chocolate tart.

Keto Eton Mess
A classic British dessert with strawberries, meringue and cream
- 150 ml Heavy Whipping Cream Try this one
- 100 grams Strawberries
- 2 Egg Whites
- 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract I recommend this
- 1/4 Tsp Cream of Tartar Try this one
- 1 1/2 Tbsp Erythritol (Powdered) I recommend this one
- Stevia to taste Try this one
- Start by dicing up the strawberries into small pieces. If you prefer large pieces, make them large
- Then whip the egg whites till frothy and add in the cream of tartar
- Once the eggs are nearing soft peaks add in half the vanilla extract and all the Erythritol and whip to soft peaks
- Then transfer the egg whites onto a silpat or use parchment paper and bake at 120 C for 30-35 minutes till cooked through.
- Allow the meringue to cool for 15 minutes before removing from the parchment paper
- In a bowl add the heavy cream, stevia and the remaining vanilla extract and whip to soft peaks and let it chill in the fridge
- After chilling fold the strawberries into the cream and then break the meringue and add it to the cream as well.
- Transfer to individual serving bowls and garnish with half a strawberry.

Recently found you on youtube and I love your content! Been going through your website and there are so many recipes that I want to try.
Question: what ‘heavy whipping cream’ do you use?
I’m new to Keto, and i’m so confused as all I can find are the low fat versions…

Depends which country you are from, in India you can use Amul Whipping Cream, Parsi Dairy cream or buy some of the imported brands.

What would be the figure for just the meringue without the cream and strawberries please. Making this for the first time today.

What figure? Are you talking about the macros? I actually dont’ know but you can just put the raw ingredients in your calculator and it will show you.

Another version is Pavlova, where you use a softer, unbroken meringue as the base. This gives a more chewy texture, but is equally delicious.
