Easy Mini Pavlovas for Christmas in Summer 

Christmas is celebrated in the summer months in Sydney (or Australia!) so the traditional feast is (sometimes) replaced by something colder, for example, swapping the steamed pudding for a cold pavlova.

Pavlova – named after the Russian ballet dancer Anna Pavlova and apparently created by a chef in Wellington, New Zealand – is simply a meringue base topped with fresh fruits and cream. They come in all shapes and sized although the traditional version, I believe, is about the size of a proper cake.

I bought these mini pavlova nests online by accident (because I thought they were little meringue cookies…) but you can make them yourself using this recipe here. Making a pavlova from scratch is definitely on my ‘to learn’ list for next year!

I made my super easy version with yogurt and berries because I’m not very good with dairy cream (as I’m slightly lactose intolerant).
