Aquafaba is the brine that is leftover from canned chickpeas. It has a sort of gelatinous texture, very similar to egg whites, and it can be used as an egg substitute in all kinds of different desserts.

If you thought that you have to miss out on meringues and mousses just because you’re vegan, think again. This magical liquid can replace egg whites in so many baking recipes and it couldn’t be easier to use!

Using a few of my own recipes and some from other food bloggers, I’m bringing you this list of 30 impressive vegan aquafaba desserts. There’s something for everyone to enjoy, including pavlova, cakes, doughnuts, brownies, cookies and more.
