Homemade Pavlova with seasonal Berries and Dark Chocolate



  • 4 egg whites
  • 2/3 cup of caster sugar
  • 2/3 cup of fat free, plain yoghurt
  • 1 teaspoon of honey
  • 1-2 cups of diced seasonal fruit or berries
  • 45g of dark chocolate, roughly grated


Preheat oven to 120°C

Draw a 20cm circle on non-stick baking paper and place pencil-side down on a baking tray.

Use the electric beater to beat the egg whites in a large bowl until soft peaks form.

Add the sugar (one tablespoon at a time), beat until sugar is dissolved.

Spoon meringue onto the baking paper. Use a spoon to create an indent on top of the pavlova. This will form a nest for the filling.

Bake on the bottom shelve for 1 hour. Then turn oven off and leave in oven to cool for 3 hours.

Mix the fat free plain yogurt with the honey and spoon into centre of the pavlova. Top with the diced seasonal fruit or berries and add grated dark chocolate as a garnish.
