Can you believe this is a sugar-free meringue tart?! Plus, this meringue tart is also gluten-free and dairy-free, so it’s pretty much an awesome diet-friendly, guilt-free dessert!

I just fell in love with Green Sugar! I was looking for a great substitute for refined sugar in baked goodies, but I never seemed to find a good one. I tried coconut sugar, molasses, brown sugar, but all of these are good only in dark colored desserts, such as chocolate goodies. Last week I was contacted to make a review for Green Sugar, a 0-calorie healthy sweetener made of stevia extract and erythritol. I accepted and I’m glad I did!

Firstly, I was worried about the taste. I’ve been using liquid stevia extract for a while, mainly for sweetening tea or other liquids. I’ve never used it in desserts because the taste is not really that good. It has a somehow bitter taste. The great thing about the Green Sugar products is that they’re based on stevia extract, but they’re also combined with erythritol, a natural sweetener extracted from organic non-GMO corn. This combination makes it sweet like sugar, but without the subtle bitter taste stevia has.

One other great thing about it is that it has 0 calories!! Yes, you’ve heard it right, it’s not only healthy but it won’t make you fat either! This is my dream. Now I can eat all the sweets I want without getting fat! Hehe 😀

The ultimate test for this healthy sweetener was to use it to make meringue. And it passed the test with a perfect score! I made a great meringue with it. So, it’s good for any kind of dessert you want to make. Just use it like regular sugar.

That being said, if you want a healthy, guilt-free dessert, you should definitely give this sugar-free meringue tart a try! The slightly sour taste of the apricots goes great with the sweetness of the foamy meringue. Plus the textures go very well together.

This meringue tart is also gluten-free and dairy-free. The crust is made with carrots and zucchinis, so it’s a great way to trick your kids into eating more veggies :). It’s not difficult to make at all. Hurry up and start baking it! 🙂

  7. Composition:
  8. Put the sliced apricots in a skillet over medium heat. Add Green Sugar, raisins, water, and cloves. Stir continuously until the water pretty much evaporates.You'll get a sticky syrup texture and slightly cooked apricots.

Sugar-free meringue:

  1. Whisk egg whites until foamy. Add Green Sugar and vanilla extract. Blend together slowly, so you won't lose the air bubbles.
  2. When ready, take the tart out of the oven. Add the composition and top it with the foamy meringue. Put it in the oven for another 10 minutes at a maximum temperature of 150C/302F.

Poti sa ne spui de unde putem cumpara green sugar si faina folosita?

Faina Dr. Schar o cumpar de obicei online. O poti cumpara direct de la sursa http://nutrient.ro/shop/category/view/46 ori de pe alte site-uri gen plafar sau cu alimente pentru diete speciale. De asemenea se gaseste si in supermarketuri si hypermarketuri (cam in toate cele mai cunoscute).

Green Sugar se poate cumpara la fel ori direct de la sursa http://www.laboratoareleremedia.ro/product-category/green-sugar/ ori de pe alte magazine online care comercializeaza acest produs. In supermarketuri inca nu am gasit produsul, dar e posibil sa il gasesti si la plafar.

Sper sa iti fie de folos :)
