Coconut Cloud Fruit Dip

Recipe by: Willow Bird Baking, adapted from SkinnyTaste
Yield: about 3 cups of meringue dip

I love this easy, delicious dip. It whips up a ton — perfect for a brunch party. I put about half of the dip into a pretty ramekin on a platter of fresh berries and then replenished as needed during brunch.

4 egg whites from large eggs, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon coconut extract
1/2 cup water
1 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup shredded coconut

Place the egg whites with the vanilla extract and coconut extract in the clean bowl of a stand mixer. Stir the water and sugar together in a small saucepan over high heat. Bring this to a boil and cook until the syrup reaches 234 degrees F on a candy thermometer, about 4-8 minutes.

When the syrup begins to boil, start mixing the egg whites on low speed so they begin to get foamy. When the syrup is up to temperature, turn the egg whites to medium-high speed and very slowly drizzle the hot syrup into the whites. Beat until the dip forms stiff glossy peaks, tossing in the salt to mix in along the way. Gently fold shredded coconut in to the meringue dip, saving a bit to sprinkle on top. Serve with a platter of fresh strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, or whatever fruit you love most!

    I’ve found that it’s also important to know the person that you are in disagreement with…or, rather, how they think or communicate. My boyfriend doesn’t really understand emotional concepts (i.e. Empathy). Knowing this about him saves a lot of time and conflict when having heated discussions. It helps me to explain things that are making me mad in terms that he understands or can relate to.
