VIV'S MERINGUE KISSES WITH STRAWBERRIES

If you are a dessert person but like to watch the calories, meringue is your best friend.  This recipe uses fresh strawberries and has only 1 Slimming World syn per kiss!  Viv has used our Meade potato starch to make these but until it is available in a retailer near you, you can settle for cornflour!
