Raspberry Meringue Pavlova Recipe

It is always best to make meringue on a cool, dry day if possible because humidity turns meringue sticky and chewy which is not the desired result. If the day is hot or humid, you might be able to keep your kitchen cool when you make them. You can use strawberries or blueberries if you do not like raspberries or if you cannot get them. Part of the attraction of raspberry pavlova is the color and the way the bright red raspberries stand out against the stark white meringue.

Raspberry pavlova is an impressive dessert and it is perfect to serve at a garden party or dinner party. The crisp meringues contrast well with the juicy berries and the delicious Cool Whip. Raspberries and meringues are the perfect partners.

This raspberry pavlova is sweet, crispy, fruity, and creamy all at once. Perhaps you have enjoyed a raspberry & white chocolate pavlova before or used pudding in a similar dessert recipe and you will find that the vanilla pudding is perfect for sticking the meringues together and the creamy texture is beautiful with the berries in this raspberry meringue pavlova recipe.
