What Is Aquafaba?

In 2015, after the vegan community had tried everything to recreate the elusive egg white meringue, it was discovered that the liquid in canned beans, specifically chickpeas, when whipped like egg whites, turned into a perfect, airy, sweet, and crispy meringue.

  • 1 can of chickpeas (Liquid drained and kept seperate)
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar

  2. Place the bean liquid in a stand-up mixer with the whisk attachment. Add cream of tartar and vanilla extract. Whip on high for 6-8 minutes until the aquafaba has formed medium-stiff peaks. During that time, slowly add Lakanto Classic Sweetener about 1/4 cup at a time.
  3. Pipe the meringue nests about 2 inches in diameter on greaseproof paper. With a spoon, create a well in the middle. Bake at 80-100c for 2 hours, until firm.
  4. Melt the cacao butter and set aside
  5. To make coconut chocolate ganache, whip up coconut solids with a handheld mixer. Add Lakanto Classic Sweetener Powder and vanilla extract add the melted cooled cacao butter and whip until it thickens back up again.
  6. Once meringues have baked, fill with the chocolate ganache and top with 3-4 berries. Drizzle melted chocolate or Lakanto Chocolate Topping.
