3 egg whites
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
3 tablespoons fruit sweetener (recipe to follow)
1 teaspoon vanilla

Fruit sweetened, strawberry or French vanilla ice cream can also be used. Top with one whole strawberry. Blueberries, blackberries, or peaches also work well as a substitute for strawberries.
