These delicate mini Pavlovas are so fluffy and gorgeous!

I could name them one of my favorite desserts, but I simply don’t make them often enough.

The reason why?

They just taste best if you eat them right after you make them.

(The meringue could be bakes 1-2 days in advance and stored covered at room temperature, before you assemble the dessert). I prefer to usually make them for parties. Definitely a crowd pleaser.

Named after a Russian ballerina, these light and airy mini meringue tarts are so easy to make!

Meringue is effortless to make, but you need to be patient, while baking (drying) it in the oven.

Of course, you can make one large Pavlova, with the amount of meringue in this recipe, but I really love the look of these mini Pavlovas.

I topped mine with whipped cream (of course) and to balance the sweetness from the meringue, I decided to add some pureed kiwi and top with blackberries.

Any berries of your choice should work, but as I’ve told you before – I love blackberries!

Here are some tips for making the meringue (you might already know):

Make sure your egg whites are at room temperature, you can separate them the night before, cover and let them sit covered, at room temperature.

Egg whites should be completely egg yolk free.

Your bowl and mixer whisk should be completely dry, oil free, for best results.

I baled these Pavlovas in the oven at 300 F for 30 minutes, but baking them at lower temperature for longer time works, too.

For best results, turn the oven off and let Pavlovas cool inside for 1 hour.

    1. Oh my! I saw these on IG and they are even more adorable here! I simply love that kiwi puree on top – simple, elegant yet adorable and TOTALLY MOUTHWATERING!

    2. these are gorgeous! so pretty I don’t know if I could eat them ! lol they look de-lish though! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    3. Mira, this is so creative! I’ve made pavlova plenty of times – being an Aussie, it’s a classic – but the way you’ve used the kiwi is really clever! Thank you for the idea, I never in a million years would have thought of doing that!

    4. Hi Mira, these mini pavlovas look so adorable, the idea for the topping is very creative! People here in Australia are addicted to pavlovas, actually there is a big argument between Australians and New Zealanders over the creation of this dessert. To date none of the countries was able to prove where it was invented!
