Author: Sylvia Eastman
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk {If you are fine with dairy, you can use regular cow milk here, too.}
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 10 tablespoons coconut milk {the canned kind, not the milk substitute kind}
  • 1/2 cup aquafaba {this is the liquid from canned or cooked chickpeas}
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon turmeric {optional, this is for colour}
  1. In a large bowl, combine together the sugar, spices and coconut milk until smooth. Then, whisk in the almond milk until combined.

  2. In a second large bowl, whip the aquafaba until it forms soft peaks. 

  3. Fold the aquababa into the contents of the first bowl

  4. Serve chilled, garnished with more nutmeg.

Recipe Notes
  • If you are buying canned chickpeas to obtain the aquafaba for this recipe, buy unsalted chickpeas. 
  • Reserve your chickpeas for another recipe. If you don't think you can use them right away, you can freeze them.
  • This recipe makes about 3 1/2 cups but it will deflate a little bit after sitting.
  • If you are OK with dairy, you can substitute regular cow milk for the almond milk.
  • If you only have sweetened plant milk, omit the sugar and add some as needed to achieve desired sweetness level.
