Lemon Meringue Cups

These little desserts are perfect for those who love lemon and for those who have a sweet tooth… Okay… they are a little indulgent at 10 points +, but they are nice for a special occasion or for when you want to use up some activity points!

serves 4 ( 10 points + )

  • 1 can ( 14 oz) fat-free sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 eggs, separated ( at room temperature)
  • juice and zest of 2 lemons
  • ¼ c. sugar

Whisk together sweetened condensed milk with 2 egg yolks, lemon zest and lemon juice. Divide evenly among four ramekins. Freeze for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Beat in sugar in a thin stream until peaks are stiff and glossy.
Place ramekins on a baking sheet and top with meringue. Make peaks using the tip of a knife. Broil for 2-3 minutes until browned. Watch carefully because these can burn quickly. Serve immediately.
