6 large egg whites, 1 1/2 cups Big Tree Farms Golden Coconut Sugar
2 pinches of sea salt, 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup cocoa powder, sifted, 2 oz semi-sweet chocolate, finely chopped
1 1/2 cups (355 ml) heavy cream, 2 tsp golden coconut sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract, 4 cups mixed fresh berries, -1 oz semi-sweet chocolate, to grated

Heat your oven to 350 °F. Line baking sheet with

parchment paper.

  • Beat the egg whites until peaks form, then beat the coconut sugar in until meringue is stiff and shiny. 

  • Add sea salt, cocoa, vinegar, and chopped chocolate. Gently fold everything with a rubber spatula.

  • Mound the meringue into the 9-inch circle, smoothing the sides and top.

  • Bake the meringue: Turn oven down to 300 degrees.The Pavlova will bake 60-80 minutes

  • It should look crisp on top and feel dry, but when you prod the center it should feel a little squishy. Turn the oven off, leave the door slightly ajar, and let the meringue cool completely inside.

To serve: place the cooled pavlova onto a big plate. Whip the cream with the coconut sugar and vanilla until soft peaks form. Pile it onto the meringue. Scatter with fresh berries and shave chocolate shavings.
