Dukan Diet Attack Phase Recipes – Meringues à la Dukan

Meringues are a great way to allow yourself a sweet snack or to make your dessert that little bit extra special and as they are basically egg white and sweetener you can enjoy this treat totally guilt free.  They are easy to make too!


Rhubarb is a food which is tolerated in the Cruise Phase of the diet.  You can eat up to 100 grams sweetened with sweetener on a Pure Protein (PP) Day and are allowed unlimited amounts on Protein and Vegetable (PV) day.  I would personally recommend that you try to eat this fruit, which is botanically actually a vegetable, whenever you can on a PP day because of the fiber and nutritional benefits it provides.  This means that on PP days I can make myself a Rhubarb Sundae by putting layers of rhubarb, sweetened yogurt and crumbled meringue in a sundae glass and enjoy.

Meringues à la Dukan

Ingredients

  • 4 egg whites (Allowed to come to room temperature if necessary)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cream of tartar
  • 1 cup of zero calories sugar substitute

Method

  1. Put the egg whites in a clean, dry, grease-free bowl with the cream of tartar and whisk until the egg whites form soft peaks that hold their shape.
  2. Add the sweetener one tablespoon at a time.
  3. When all the sweetener has been added, continue whisking until the egg whites become glossy and form stiff peaks that hold their shape.
  4. Using a piping bag with a large star nozzle pipe your meringue on to parchment paper placed on a baking sheet.
  5. Place in a preheated cool oven at 250°F, 130°C or Gas Mark 1/2 for 30 minutes when the meringues should be crisp and dry.
  6. Turn the oven off and allow the meringues to cool in the oven for a further 30 minutes.
  7. When completely cool, store in an air tight container until needed, for up to seven days.

    Hi Amber can I use hermesetas as sweetener ? And how much sugar can we consume in a day? It s true that it s allowed 100 gr of sweetener a day? I think it s a lot of carbs! Thanks

    • Amber on January 20, 2017

      Hi Grazia

      Dr Dukan recommends limiting sweeteners to the equivalent of 8 to 12 teaspoons so this shouldn’t be anything like 100 grams of sweetener.

    Help !!!!
    I cannot stand the taste of artificial sweeteners and also find using them a problem, because of the link to cancer !!
    I have tried Stevia which is a natural product…however I can’t stand the taste of this either.
    I have a sweet tooth and am worried that I am going to fail on this diet, as I cannot satisfy my sweet cravings at all.

      Hi Lynn

      It might be better to find another diet to follow if you believe you won’t be able to stick to the Dukan due to the lack of sugar.

      Kind regards

      Did you try adding Vanilla Essence?

    • libby on July 24, 2015

      hi, i don’t know if you have tried splenda. it is different, it is the only artificial sweetner that really tastes like sugar and cooks just like sugar. cup for cup. it is actually make from real sugar. hope that works for you

      Hi Angie

    what is the difference between regular cottage cheese and fat free cottage.

    • Amber on September 14, 2014

      Hi Tabitha

      It is the fat content that is different.

      Kind regards

    Hi, I want to try this recipe and found a 2 calorie sweetner is this okay?

    • Amber on June 23, 2014

      Hi Evelyn

      Dr Dukan recommends zero calorie sweeteners so I can’t say it is OK but many people do bend the rules and find it doesn’t prevent them losing weight.

    Hello, I need some advise I’m in the cruise phase but seem not to be losing weight I dropped 3.5 pounds on the attack and the gained .5 back and as I weight my self for the past week I’ve been going up and down on that same half a pound. I deceived to turn back to basics so I’m sure I’m doing things right. Where I live we don’t have fat free cheeses so no cheese at all only about a pound of yogurt a day non fat of course like half a liter of milk 1%, then thinks like chicken! or meat i use small amounts of tomato paste, sometime mustard, vanilla, and sweetener my oat bran allowed and one table spoon of goji berries.. I’ve even given up veggies for three days now. I hope to drop below that .5 pound margarine. Any advise? Am I eating to much yogurt? I must be doing something wrong I just haven’t figured it out. Help!

    • Amber on January 18, 2014

      Hi Silvana

      One of the suggestions that the Dukan coaches make when someone’s weight loss hits a plateau is to cut back dairy consumption from 1 kg per day to 500 g as this helps reduce the carbs being consumed. Don’t avoid vegetables as they are a very important part of the diet and help provide useful vitamins and minerals.

      Best wishes

      • Silvana on January 19, 2014

        Amber thanks!,I’m weighting in on Monday and I’ll take your advise. Cutting back on dairy it is then I’ll try to find a substitute for my vanilla yogurt :(. Thanks again,

  • linda on October 22, 2013

    Just a question about the meringues, was wondering If your can use any packaged egg whites. Thanks..Linda

    • Amber on October 22, 2013

      Hi Linda

      You can use liquid egg whites to make your meringues if you wish.

      Kind regards

      Amber:)

      • Courtney on May 10, 2017

        Actually packaged egg whites are pasteurized and won’t work for this as they won’t firm up from my experience and research

        • Amber on May 10, 2017

          Hi Courtney

          You are right you need to add lemon juice or cream of tartar.

          Thanks

          Amber:)

    I made these a few days ago using powdered stevia. I’ve never messed up real meringues before, but these turned out awful. They were squidgy, rubbery, unpalatable and stuck to my teeth. Did I do something wrong?

    • Amber on April 18, 2013

      Hi Sarah

      Meringues can be a little tricky as they don’t cope well with high humidity. I’m also wondering whether the stevia was a problem as I use Splenda. I found this thread on one of the forums I visit every now and again which might help. http://www.dukaners.com/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=604

  • Janese on February 26, 2013

    Can i use stevia liquid extract as a sweetner?

    Thanks

    Janese

    • Amber on February 26, 2013

      Hi Janese

      Yes you can use liquid stevia and there is no limit on these meringues as they are only made from egg whites and sweetener.

      Kind regards

      Amber:)
