Eton mess grapefruit passion coco {without milk}

Eton mess

En ce moment je suis un peu absente par ici, il faut dire aussi qu’avec deux enfants à gérer et le retour au travail de Monsieur, ça n’est pas toujours simple de trouver du temps. Bon j’avoue j’arrive quand même à faire quelques recettes avec un bébé en portage et une grande qui me demande de jouer aux dominos (supermaman ! ps : l’auto-congratulation ne fait pas de mal !!!). Alors oui je sais je cuisine pas mal de desserts en ce moment (allez savoir pourquoi !) et c’est le cas aujourd’hui avec ces eton mess pamplemousse et passion. Je suis une fan absolue de pamplemousse, which is not at all the case of Monsieur so I cook it little because otherwise I am a bit the only one to eat what I prepare ! But these eton mess were quickly devoured by Mr., because the bitter side of the grapefruit is quickly compensated by the meringue, coconut whipped cream and the acidity of passion fruit. So yes there is meringue sugar but if you don't put tons of it (even if it is comforting !) this dessert is quite healthy and full of good fruits.

Brief, I leave you with the recipe and photos !

    Super association! I love grapefruit but I rarely cook it, except in fruit salad or in my porridges, because I don't find it easy to pay homage to him, your recipe with coconut means a lot to me! Especially since I've already tried this famous coconut whipped cream made with coconut cream and it's really great, Thanks for the recipe!
