This week is full of novelties. Recently, we posted a giveaway for GreenTeaHP, a new product we think you’ll love. Check the link if you missed it! But we’ve also been experimenting with other new things this week. Vegan marshmallow-y meringue!
What’s this gorgeous vegan white fluff made of? The liquid from canned chickpeas! This chickpea liquid turns into a fluffy white meringue made without egg whites or cream or anything of the sort. And of course, it’s naturally-sweetened with all healthy ingredients!
We could hardly believe that this liquid, (which we so often throw away) could turn into something so creamy and marshmallowy. We’re here to share the proof! Meringue can be made without eggs and white sugar! Vegan merigue really does whip into a light and airy treat. We can’t wait to experiment more. For best results with this cream, enjoy with a healthy fresh fruit tart… coming soon!
- Add the chickpea liquid to the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Add the other ingredients and mix on high speed. Whip at least 9-10 minutes until stiff peaks form. The cream will begin to separate after a few hours, so it is best to enjoy it soon after preparation or keep it separate and store in the fridge.
- If storing in the fridge: store in an airtight container without anything added to it. The mixture will separate and become a bubbly liquid, but whipping it again on high speed will return it to a fluffy cream. Enjoy this vegan meringue on cakes or cookies, fresh fruit or your favorite dessert!
