I just mad a meringue from scratch for the first time in ages...I used to beat the egg whites with a hand whisk...far too hard...now I got an electric whisk...meringue city here I come!! who wants some...its gooood!!!!
Also to keep it fat free I don't use cream...but instead get a pot of no fat yoghurt, mix in some vanilla paste or extract and some sweetener and it is delicious with strawberries and the meringue!! oh yeah!!!
