'The Kitchn' blog put together a recipe for making colorful meringue desserts. When it comes to dessert, not everyone is a fan of cakes, cookies and pies. This recipe provides a sweet alternative for those who prefer their desserts on the lighter side.

Although there are several different varieties, meringues generally refer to egg whites that have been whipped with sugar. The act of beating the eggs gives the dessert an airy texture, while the addition of sugar prevents the meringues from losing their shape. Once the meringues have been prepared, gel food coloring can be used to create colorful swirls. The end result is a light and airy dessert that delivers a vibrant pop of color.

The recipe is perfect for those who are looking for a lighter dessert that does not compromise aesthetics.
