Lemon Berry Pavlova Parfaits
Recipe type: Dessert
Makes: 6 individual servings
The prettiest parfaits layered with lemon whipped cream, fluffy meringue and fresh berries.
  • 6 cocktail glasses or glass bowls
  • 1 pavlova broken into bite sized pieces (can substitute broken meringue cookies as well)
  • 355 milliliters (1½ cups) heavy whipping cream
  • 44 milliliters (3 tablespoons) lemon juice (~1 lemon)
  • 53g (~1/4 cup) granulated sugar
  • 2½ cup fresh berries washed and dried (I used a mix of raspberries, blackberries and sliced strawberries)
  1. Prepare lemon whipped cream; in the large bowl of an electric mixer with whisk attachment, beat cream and lemon juice at medium speed until foamy; increase speed to medium-high, and slowly add granulated sugar, beating until stiff peaks form
  2. Put about ⅓ of a cup of whipped cream on the bottom of each glass; layer with ⅓ cup of berries in each glass; follow that layer with crumbled pavlova (enough to reach the rim of each glass)
  3. Dollop remaining whipped cream on top of each parfait along with a couple of berries
  4. Serve immediately or chill in refrigerator until ready to enjoy
Pavlova can be baked up to three days in advance. Just store in an airtight container and break into pieces right before putting together parfaits
Parfaits prepared and served on same day but can be enjoyed within three days
