Peppermint Meringue Treat – Easy Low Carb Recipe

Peppermint Meringue Treat – Easy Low Carb Recipe

July 26, 2019 5 By William Morgan


Welcome all! Papa G here. Today I present
low carbohydrate peppermint meringues. With only
four main ingredients this is a very
easy recipe to make. These meringues are
so light and airy they practically melt
in your mouth; while leaving behind a
nice peppermint freshness. Let’s get
started…
We’ll begin with four egg whites; add a
half a teaspoon of cream of tartar; this
will help stiffen the peaks. Now blend
with a hand mixer. You want to get it to
the consistency of shaving cream.
Now while continuing to beat, slowly add
a granulated sugar substitute equal to
two-thirds cup of regular sugar. Once the
sugar has been incorporated, add a half a
teaspoon of peppermint extract. Blend
until combined. Now this next step is
optional, but what I like to do here is
separate the meringue into different
bowls to add some color. I’ll only be
using white and red here for this video,
but the sky’s the limit with the
different colors you can make; like green
for example; for wreaths or trees. If you
want to be artistic with different
designs, then I highly recommend using a
pastry bag, but you can also just dollop
them on with a spoon if you prefer. Add
the meringue to a parchment lined baking
sheet either as a single mint or in
special designs. Now I’m not very
artistic, but here I’ll attempt to make
some standard drops; Santa hats; and some
snowmen. You can be as creative as you
like.
Place the meringues in the middle of a
preheated 220°F oven for 45 minutes.
after 45 minutes turn the oven off and
let rest for 60 minutes with the door
closed. When they come out, you’ll have
the lightest in area streets ever – plus the
whole house smelling of peppermint.
There you have it folks!
