I used some larger meringue cookies for this version. And then, when we ran out of the large cookies we used the bitty ones that come in bags. And we layered the bitty ones in mason jars. Those were also amazing!! An absolute success!

mini pavlovas are so easy to make with pre-packaged meringue cookies!

We served these to my sister-in-law and her family (a bunch of boys) and the only sound you heard was forks scraping dishes. They were devoured!  Winner!

  1. I’ve never seen premade pavlova! How cool is that? I love easy and healthy gluten free recipes. Thanks for the inspiration! Sharing!

  2. I would say this counts as healthy…at least as far as desserts go. And yes…young guys eating is such a special experience!

    I’m going to pin this on my healthy board — it’s got egg whites. An egg is the beginning of life. What could be more basic than that?? Plus fruit you have a perfectly healthy dessert. And I am familiar with the sound of young males attacking ( uh! eating) their food.

  4. I don’t even know what the non lazy bakers version of pavlova is, but looks like ingredients I would like. I mean cream? Bring it on.
