Healthy Low-Calorie Strawberry Marshmallow Dessert
This is a super-simple recipe for the Healthy Strawberry Marshmallow Dessert, a low-calorie, high protein and all-natural super-healthy treat!
Course: Breakfast, Dessert, Mousse
Servings: 2 huge servings
Author: Liza
Ingredients
  • 4 pasteurized egg whites
  • 4-5 tsp sugar or erythritol*
  • 4-5 oz fresh strawberries
  • 1 packet powdered gelatin
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract optional
  • 2-3 tsp ground freeze-dried strawberries
Instructions
  1. Cut the stems off the strawberries, set them on a baking sheet and bake them in the oven at 350F for 10 minutes. Take the strawberries out and let them cool down to the room temperature.
  2. Pour 2 tbsp of water over the gelatin. Stick the mixture in a microwave and heat it up for about 30 seconds. (Alternatively you can set it in a pot over a low flame and heat it up until the gelatin completely melts).
  3. Add the strawberries and the gelatin mixture to a blender and blend until the strawberries are pureed.
  4. Whip the egg whites with the cream of tartar until they are frothy. Add the vanilla extract and the sugar or the erythritol. Whip for a few minutes more until the whites are really stiff.
  5. Add about 1/3 of the strawberry and gelatin mixture to the egg whites and whip until everything is incorporated.
  6. Spoon 2-3 tbsp of strawberry puree in each serving bowl. Top with the egg whites mixture.
  7. Put the souffles in the fridge until they're set or overnight to wake up to a delicious Dessert For Breakfast treat!
  8. To make my soufflés look extra-pretty I also topped with with some crushed freeze-dried strawberries right before serving them!
  9. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

* Erythritol is a zero-calorie sweetener that's completely natural. When I add it to my Marshmallow Dessert instead of sugar, I get the all-protein, indulgent, eat-all-you-want white cloudy dessert for breakfast with just a 30 calorie "price tag". But even if you decide not to experiment with the sweeteners or you just don't have erythritol (or you can also use xylitol) on hand, even when you go with the 4 tsp of sugar, they won't add that many calories to this dessert for you to worry about. And yes, I know that a regular merengue requires much more sweetener than that. But all that sugar is added there as a stabilizer for when you bake it. And I promise that just the 4 tsp. make the whipped whites taste sweet enough to totally "indulge"!
