Fruity Meringue Cups Recipe

| May 23, 2014 | 23 Comments

The ingredients!

Hooray!  The weather is finally warming up and the sun is starting to peek out and shed some light and warmth on us.  I am finally starting to transition away from heavy winter foods and looking for lighter fare.  I want salad and barbecue and steak and fruit – essentially summer on my plate.  My new favourite dessert for this season is meringue cups.  I LOVE meringue. Like seriously love it.  I could sit and eat it by itself by the bowl.  So yummy, light and sweet.  Pure bliss.  For this dessert you can make your own meringue cups or you can just buy a box of 8 cups from President’s Choice which is what I did.  They are pretty good for store bought.  You can fill them with any berry you like…blackberries, blueberries, strawberries or my choice – raspberries.  You can top them with plain whipped cream, or cool whip, but I love using the maple syrup flavoured whipped cream that I make in my whipped cream maker, it adds a little boost of flavour to the whole dessert.

Here is my recipe:[amd-zlrecipe-recipe:106]

About the Author ()

I am an active mother of two fabulous kids that make me smile every day. I love to cook old favourites and try out new recipes and never let my kids’ nut and egg allergy get in the way! I am forever dragging my husband all over town to try out the latest and greatest new spots to eat but for the most part I think he’s a willing participant. I would call myself a Foodie but then you would think I was pretentious, so I won't go there. I am an avid reader, pretty much anything I can get my hands on, anytime I can squeeze it in. (Yes that was me you saw reading while I was running on the treadmill at the gym). I love to write and share all my great finds whenever I can! Let’s eat!

    Mmmmmm, that sounds so good, I don’t have a whipped cream maker so I guess I could fold the syrup into the cool whip, but it probably won’t be the same, but oh well I’m going to make these anyways!!

    I love meringues too, one of the first things I buy when I get to England are meringues, filled with fresh cream and half a glazed cherry as deco. Melt in your mouth to die for 🙂 The maple syrup flavoured whipped cream sounds like something for me, does one add the maple syrup to the cream and after whipping when you don’t have a whipped cream maker?

  18. VMChick says:

    I think if I was whipping the cream by hand, I would add the maple syrup to the cream before I started whipping…

  19. Cheryl (@loucheryl) says:
