how to make vegan whipped cream also known as aquafaba

What is aquafaba?

Aquafaba is actually chickpea water, or brine leftover from the can. So essentially when you drain a can of chickpeas, instead of letting that precious liquid go down the drain, you save it! When beaten with sugar, it becomes light and airy, making an excellent substitute for egg whites in vegan desserts.

Whoever discovered this is some kind of mad-scientist-foodie-genius in my book. Now go stock up on some cans of chickpeas and learn how to make this yummy treat!

How to make vegan whipped cream (aquafaba)

Drain your chickpeas over a bowl to catch that liquid gold. Add powdered sugar. Use a hand mixer or a stand mixer and after 5-10 minutes, you will see the magic start to happen.

The liquid will turn into this creamy, whipped texture. Crazy right?! It will take some time for it to become light and fluffy, but when it does oh my you’ll be amazed at the results!

Tip: Aquafaba doesn’t keep its volume for very long. I recommend serving these vegan s’mores right away for best results!

Ingredients

Graham Cracker Crust:

  • 8 sheets graham crackers (reserve 1 for topping)
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut oil melted

Chocolate Mousse:

  • 2 large Hass avocado
  • 6 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 6 Tablespoons maple syrup or agave
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3-6 Tablespoons unsweetened almond milk (this will depend on the consistency of mousse — use your discretion)

Vegan Whipped Cream:

  • 4 Tablespoons aquafaba (liquid from can of chickpeas — amount of liquid from 1 can)
  • 4 Tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Optional topping:

  • chocolate chunks
  • crushed graham crackers

Tools:

Instructions

Graham Cracker Crust:

  • Place the graham crackers inside the food processor. Pulse until they are finely ground.
  • Transfer to a bowl and add the melted coconut oil. Mix and set aside.

Chocolate Mousse:

  • Rinse the food processor. Place all the ingredients for mousse in the blender (except the almond milk) and blend until completely smooth.
  • Add the almond milk one tablespoon at a time until desired consistency. Mousse should be thick and pudding-like - not watery and pourable. It took me 6 tablespoons to get it to the consistency I wanted.

Vegan Whipped Cream (Aquqfaba):

  • Drain a can of chickpeas into a large mixing bowl and save chickpeas for another recipe.
  • Add powdered sugar to the mixing bowl.
  • Using a hand mixer or stand mixer, blend on medium-high speed for 5-10 minutes until liquid turns into a whipped cream consistency.

Assemble Parfaits:

  • Construct parfaits by layering graham cracker crumbles, chocolate mousse, then topping with whipped aquafaba. Repeat layers.
  • Garnish with graham cracker pieces and chocolate chunks (optional).
  • Consume right away. Aquafaba loses its volume fairly quickly so it’s best eaten immediately!
