Aquafaba comes from the Latin words aqua (water) and faba (bean). It's created by cooking legumes such as chickpeas or beans. This liquid that we often discard has noteworthy properties. Sometimes it can be a good substitute for egg whites.
To make a delicious vegan dessert with aquafava, you're going to need the following ingredients:
5 g lime zest
250 g chickpeas
750 g almond drink
1 cinnamon stick
90 g sugar
Start by soaking the chickpeas for 12 hours. Once they're softer, add them to a pot of boiling water and cook them for 40 minutes. Remove the chickpeas and strain the liquid as this will be the base of our aquafaba. Pour the liquid into a blender and add the sugar. Blend until a white foam forms, similar to what happens when beating an egg white. Add the almond milk to a pot and let it boil with the cinnamon and the lime peel. Once it has infused for three hours, strain it and put it in the refrigerator for 8 hours. Once it's cold, mix it with the aquafaba until it's a uniform liquid, and you can serve it in a glass with a touch of cinnamon. It's a delicious, vegan dessert.
