Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 120°C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. To make the meringues, place sugar, vinegar, cornflour, egg white, vanilla and boiling water into the bowl of a mixer and beat for 10-15 minutes until thick. Spoon 4 even portions of mixture onto the prepared tray. Bake for 40 minutes or until cooked. Cool on the tray before transferring to a cooling rack.
  3. To make the sauce, place Flora pro-activ, sugar, passionfruit in a saucepan over a low heat. Stir until the sugar dissolves. Stir in the blended arrowroot and lemon juice. Stir until the mixture comes to the boil and simmer for 2 minutes. Stir in sufficient orange juice to thin the sauce to a pouring consistency. Cool.
  4. Serve meringues with kiwi fruit, strawberries and drizzled with passionfruit sauce.
