I ended up having something I would describe as meringue rather than whipped cream. It’s delicious meringue, though!
This seems like some sort of magic. A delicious cream from chickpea juice!?!? Highly recommend.
So does this need to be made in a mixmaster with the egg whip beater? I tried with an immersion blender and then put in the vitamix. Still very soupy. Also started with very cold aquafaba…how many mistakes did I make here? This has so much promise but I am missing something to get it right… TIA and Happy Thanksgiving!
Hello, I have not made this specific recipe but you may want to try using an electric hand mixer which is much less expensive than a mixmaster. I predict the Vitamix would not handle this situation as well as an electric hand mixer or stand mixer with bowl. Best wishes.
I like this much better than coconut whip and it has less fat as well. It is sweet without the coconut flavor.
I just made this with the chickpea cooking liquid from the InstantPot (filtered through a sieve). It worked great. As some else stated, it’s not white, but that doesn’t bother me. It did taste slightly of bean. I added a tbsp of cacao and made a delicious chocolate whip. I could see using that to top hot chocolate or coffee. Yum!
YUM! Wondering why I haven’t made this sooner!
This was absolutely delicious- so quick and easy, with all ingredients on hand. Thank you so much!!!!!
Great substitute if avoiding dairy, but not quite the real thing:)
OK are used white bean juice and it looks exactly like the Aquafina that I have saved before. This did not want to thicken and I mixed it on the highest speed for 20 minutes. It was definitely not white as pictured. Adding maple syrup turned brown. I decided to add in some powdered peanut butter and dark chocolate chips and throw it in the freezer to make an ice cream. I hope this works
Does anyone find this gives them gas?
I’ve actually had success whipping all types of bean juice: kidney, black, white, Peruvian, and of course, garbanzo. They may have slightly different colors (black bean juice is purple-grey) but I’ve found that they all function the same way.
It only works with chick peas, not other beans. Try again with a can of chick peas (also called garbanzo beans)
Great and simple recipe. I added less maple syrup as it was too sweet for us!
Not white bean juice. Chick pea juice
Delicious. I used Blue Agave syrup instead and it was wonderful.
Have you ever used water from a salted can of chickpeas? I can’t find a no salted one where I live… I have tried making my own aquafaba but it didn’t work great. Thanks!!!
I make mine with salt added chickpeas and it comes out great. Hope you enjoy 🙂
I think the Tbs. of vanilla here is overkill, and makes the “cream” taste like alcohol. Here’s the modification that I love: once the aquafaba is beaten to soft peaks, I add in a dollop of date paste and sprinkle of cinnamon. (The cinnamon disguises the “beany” taste better than vanilla).
I’ve also learned to make this using the liquid from unsalted white beans (any variety… navy or cannellini) for a son that’s allergic to chickpeas. It doesn’t whip as fast or as foamy, but the taste is more neutral and it still makes a wonderful fluffy concoction that’s great on the French Toast or berries.
Great tips though! I didn’t know you could use other types of bean liquid, that’s awesome! Love date paste too… : )
Looks like the recipe only calls for a teaspoon of vanilla, not a Tablespoon…
