Low Carb Raspberry Meringue Pots – (Only 4 Ingredients!)
This delicious, low calorie, low carb dessert only requires 4 ingredients and takes just 15 minutes to make!
Summer days are fast approaching and there’s no better dessert than something with wither lemon or berries in it!
I love a dessert that looks fancy, but it is secretly the easiest thing ever to make. The pots of joy, are made from a layer of fresh or frozen raspberries (with a wee bit of sweetener and lemon juice), and are topped with a meringue.
These meringue pots can be made with any of your favorite low carb berries, and the best part is it works with both fresh or frozen berries.
Pro Tip: If you are using frozen raspberries, be sure to leave them out out room temperature to thaw for about 1 hour, before cooking them. This way they cook quicker and break down faster.
