Made it healthier. Instead of cream I used plain yogurt. Also mixed raspberries with blueberries and red currants. - 29 Jun 2009

Made it healthier. Instead of double cream, used plain Greek Yoghurt which lowers the fat content quite considerably. Also left out the sugar as the meringues are really sweet enough for my taste. Yummy easy and quick! - 12 Jul 2010
