Black Forest Pavlova With Espresso Cream - To make low carb use erythritol, plus a bit of a another sweetener to be as sweet as sugar, instead of raw sugar. Use sugar free chocolate curls and shavings. The cherries would have to be omitted or replaced with a berry, strawberry would be divine!
The particular joy of this dreamy dessert, which was named in honor of the Russian ballerina, is that the meringue base can be made in advance. Then to serve it, drizzle the strawberries with a little balsamic vinegar and vanilla (a combination that brings out the fullest essential flavor of the fruit), whip some cream and arrange it all on a plate. It’s magnificent, and deliriously easy. (Andrew Scrivani for The New York Times)
