How To Do The Aquafaba Mousse Base (4 easy steps)

THe Vegan Carrot Aquafaba

Get informed about Aquafaba with the articles below. It’s something I personally enjoy for its versatility in terms of baking. It is, however, lesser known for its nutritional value.

Here’s how to do it.

  1. Separate the chickpeas from their juice. It can be from a non BPA can or a small box like so.
  2. Add 1 teaspoon of cream tartar. Mix together. The cream tartar could be replaced by the same amount of fresh lemon juice.
  3. Mix with the electric blender until the mousse starts forming stiff peaks.
  4. Delicately add 3 tbsp of powdered monk fruit sugar and 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract. Mix gently.

If you want to add any flavors, add them at your taste in a liquid or powdered form. The mousse can be consumed immediately, but the texture will be best after about 8 hours in the fridge.
