Summery Eton Mess - prep

This Summery Eton Mess is an exciting twist on a British summertime favorite (soon to be my summertime favorite). And I love that meringue baking requires an oven set to just 200 degrees. Hot oven + hot day = no fun!

Summery Eton Mess - the perfect meringue consistencyMaking the perfect meringue mixture is all about the electric mixer–my biceps didn’t stand a chance in whipping them by hand! Once mixed, the batter is beautifully glossy and stiff, ready for piping.

Plus, the baked meringues can be placed in an airtight container and stored for up to 2 weeks, so they even work as a tasty afternoon snack for one. Want to keep it healthy? Just replace the whipped cream with a dollop of Greek yogurt!
