Yes. A vegan marshmallow whip you can make at home to use on top of tasty treats like hot cocoa. This recipe has been circulating the blogosphere made with a variety of ingredients. I used three simple ingredients, but the trick is…you need to be patient and invest some time into this creation. It took me 20 minutes of using the hand mixer to achieve the desired consistency. Nonetheless, this would also be a fun recipe to make with children. I think they will be amazed to watch the process unfold.
Aquafaba (This is the liquid from one standard 15 oz can of chickpeas or white beans.)
1/2 cup of sugar
A few drops of vanilla extract
1. In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer, put in all of the ingredients and mix on high. I used a hand mixer for this, but if you have a stand mixer, you can set it up and do something else while it whips together. Note, the volume will quadruple by the end.
2. Whip ingredients for 16-20 minutes to achieve the desired consistency.
Initially, I thought, “This is never going to work.” But by 12 minutes in, I was pleasantly surprised at what the chickpea water and sugar turned into. And by minute 18, it was excellent.
In the end, I used mine on top of hot cocoa and dusted it with cinnamon. It was worth the 20 minutes of using the hand mixer.
You can cover any leftovers and store in the fridge, but you will have to remix it again, as it will gradually separate.
