Ingredients
Vegan Meringues
  • liquid from 1 can of chickpeas
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup sugar
Coconut whipped cream
  • 1 can full fat coconut, solids only
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Toppings
  • chocolate, melted
  • fresh berries
Instructions
  1. Place the bean liquid in a stand-up mixer with the whisk attachment. Add cream of tartar and vanilla extract. Whip on high for 5-6 minutes until the aquafaba has formed medium-stiff peaks. During that time, slowly add sugar, about 1/4 cup at a time.

  2. Pipe the meringue nests about 2 inches in diameter on a parchment-lined baking sheet. With a spoon, create a well in the middle. Bake at 200F for 2 hours, until firm.

  3. To make coconut whipped cream, whip up coconut solids with a handheld mixer. Add powdered sugar and vanilla extract and whipped until the coconut cream is similar in texture to whipped cream.

  4. Once meringues have baked, top with about 1 tablespoon of coconut whipped cream each and 3-4 berries. Drizzle melted chocolate.
  5. Serve immediately.
