A super festive dessert: low FODMAP mini pavlovas with red fruits and cream. Only a handful of ingredients, but so tasty! Gluten-free and lactose-free.


  • 3 egg whites (about 100 g)
  • 150 g (3/4 cup) fine white sugar
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp corn starch
  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 250 g (1 cup) lactose-free whipping cream + 2 tbsp sugar
  • Low FODMAP red fruits of your choice (I used strawberries and raspberries)
  • 2 passion fruits
  • Icing sugar
  • Optional: chocolate Christmas decorations


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 100 degrees Celsius (212 F).
  2. Make sure your bowl and the whisk of your mixer are grease-free.
  3. Whip the egg whites stiff with the mixer.
  4. Add the sugar little by little, while you keep mixing. Add the salt as well.
  5. Mix until the egg whites are shiny and they stand up in stiff peaks.
  6. Mix the corn starch and vinegar together in a small bowl. Mix this through the egg whites.
  7. Cover a baking sheet with baking paper.
  8. Scoop the egg whites into a piping bag and cut off a corner of the piping bag (or use a round piping nozzle).
  9. Pipe 4 circles with the meringue of about 10-12 (4-4.7 inch) cm on the baking parchment. Fill them in and pipe 2-3 more layers of the merinque on the outsides of the circle. Like this you get little buckets that you can fill later.
  10. Put the pavlovas into the oven and bake them for 1.5 – 2 hours. For me they needed 1 hour and 45 minutes. The inside of the pavlovas should still be a bit soft, but the outside will be hard and crunchy.
  11. Turn the oven off and leave the pavlovas to cool down inside the oven for another hour. Then let them cool down outside of the oven.
  12. Whip the cream until stiff with 2 tbsp of sugar.
  13. Divide the cream over the pavlovas.
  14. Divide the fruit over the pavlovas and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Add some chocolate decorations if you like.
  15. Important: put the cream and fruit onto the pavlovas right before you serve them. If you do this too far in advance the pavlovas will get all soft and melt away.
