Aquafaba / How to make Aquafaba ~ Day 161

What is aquafaba?  It is a vegan whipping cream made from the brine/liquid that you throw away after opening a can of garbanzo beans/chickpeas.  The liquid has a consistency of an egg white and when whipped, it magically forms into this fluffy and airy whipping cream.  It is a great alternative and replacement for dishes that calls for an egg or egg white.  

For more info:

Preparation time: 2 minutes
Whipping time: 20 minutes
Yields: 2 cups


Chickpea brine / liquid - from one can, about 3/4 cup, drained and chilled
Confectioners sugar - 4 tbsp or to taste
Vanilla extract - 1/2 tsp


Place the chickpea water in a stand mixer bowl.  Using a whisk attachment, whisk on high speed for 15 to 20 minutes.
No stand mixer?  No problem.  A handheld mixer works well too.
