Fresh Fruit Pavlova

C4Bimbos's picture
I’m obsessed with pavlova. If you’ve never tried if you really need to!! You have a delicious soft crust with a chewy marshmallow center from the meringue and a sweet soft topping from the whipped cream and the freshness of all the berries. It’s such a light dessert… yet, so unbelievably satisfying.
