Have you heard of “Eton Mess”? Like me it originates from England:
Eton mess is a traditional English dessert consisting of a mixture of berries, pieces of meringue, and cream, which is traditionally served at Eton College's annual cricket game against the pupils of Harrow School.
So it's pretty easy to convert this dessert into a low carb one – as long as you have some low carb meringues. Which I do – because I made some a few weeks ago and they keep really well. Click here for my recipe. Or you could just buy some from Netrition!
How to Make Low Carb Eton Mess
The first step is to whisk some heavy cream until stiff peaks have formed. Depending on the size of the dish you plan to serve your dessert in, I'd estimate you need to whip up between ¼ and ½ cup of cream per person. The meringues are pretty sweet and I decided to use a mixture of raspberries and blueberries which of course have their natural sweetness. But if you like, add a little of your preferred low carb sweetener to the cream.
Then crush up a few of those beautiful meringues (in a plastic bag is easiest), and then layer the dessert! A spoonful of cream, a few sprinkles of crushed meringue, a few raspberries and blueberries, and repeat! Finish with the meringue and berries. Isn't it pretty?
