  • hand mixer

  • 5 medium egg whites room temp
  • 1 1/2 cups caster sugar

  • 1/2 pomegranate rubies removed
  • 1 cup coconut yoghurt

  • Preheat oven to 120C and place a sheet of baking paper on a baking tray
  • Separate your eggs making sure not to get the yolk in
  • Beat your egg whites until they have formed soft peaks, and slowly add your sugar, cornflour and beat until stiff peaks form. If you can lift the bowl over your head and nothing falls out - the eggs are ready

  • Shape the meringue into a round on the baking tray. Bake for 90 minutes. Do not remove meringue until oven is cool
  • Once the meringue is cool, place on preferred plate or cake stand and top with coconut yoghurt, grapefruit and pomegranate seeds, I also added some coconut chips for crunch.
