If you have a sweet tooth you're going to love these low carb meringues! They're perfect for when you want a sweet treat – and they also make a great topping for low carb ice cream!

For this recipe I used Confectioner's Style Swerve, which is a low carb and keto friendly sweetener. It's the only powdered sweetener I've found that I like!

How to Make Low Carb Meringues

In a stand mixer, beat together the egg whites, powdered sweetener and cream of tartar until soft peaks form.Low Carb Meringues with Cocoa Swirl - a sugar free and keto friendly sweet treat

Spoon out about a third of the mixture (doesn't have to be exact!) into a bowl and set aside. To the remaining egg whites, add some vanilla and continue to beat until stiff peaks form. Set that aside in a bowl.

Return the original bowl of egg whites to the stand mixer. Mix together some cocoa powder and a little water in a small bowl to form a thick paste. Add this to the stand mixer and beat until stiff peaks form. Very gently combine the two mixtures, folding just once or twice.

Spoon the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a large star nozzle. Pipe small swirls of the meringue mixture onto a baking tray lined with a silicone mat. This recipe makes about 24 meringues of about 1.5″ diameter.

Bake in a preheated oven (set to 200F) for one hour, then turn the oven off but leave the meringues in the oven for another three hours. At the end of that time they should be crisp and ready to eat!
