VEGAN PAVLOVA STACK WITH SEASONAL FRUIT vegan | gluten free | nut free | serves: 2 | time: 1 to 2 hours | lovingly crafted by @fooddesignstudio

We’ve been wanting to make this pavlova all year and now that we are so close to Christmas - ‘Tis finally the season! For those who didn’t know that it was possible to make a vegan pavlova which tastes just as good as Grandmas - It’s all down to the aquafaba, which simply is the liquid from a can of chickpeas. We are loving the seasonal produce this year, and this delicious pav is stacked with fresh nectarines and raspberries. Each layer is smothered with lashings of ice cold coconut cream. TIP: It’s a great idea to make the meringue the day prior, just as Grandma would and then dress as you are serving.

INGREDIENTS Meringue Ingredients

liquid from a 400g can chickpeas 3/4 cup caster sugar 1 teaspoon Very Vanilla Extract Pure Vanilla 1 teaspoon cream of tartar

Coconut Cream Ingredients

1 chilled tin of Nakula Coconut Cream (place can upside down in the fridge and leave over-night, this will allow the liquid to separate from the hard coconut cream) 1/2 cup icing sugar


3 organic nectarines 1/2 punnet raspberries maple syrup

METHOD 1. Preheat oven 100°C bake. 2. Drain the can of chickpeas, reserving the liquid. Pour the aquafaba into a small mixing bowl and beat on high with an electric beater until peaks start to form. Note that it can take a while for the peaks to form due to the quality of the chickpea liquid. Don’t give up! 3. Gradually add the caster sugar in very small amounts at a time. When you have added all of the caster sugar you can add the vanilla extract and cream of tartar. The cream of tartar will help thicken the meringue. By now your meringue should be glossy and thick. 4. Spoon the mixture into 6 even circles on a baking tray and bake for 1-2 hours or until the meringue feels crisp and hard. 5. Turn the oven off and leave the meringues in the oven to cool down slowly. 6. To make the coconut cream, remove the top of the chilled coconut cream tin and pour the thick coconut cream into a medium size mixing bowl. Using an electric beater on high, beat the cream until it resembles a whipped cream, slowly adding the icing sugar as you go. The icing sugar will ensure that the cream tastes a little sweet without over doing it and will also give the cream the whipped cream appearance that standard dairy cream has. 7. Lather the coconut cream in-between each layer of pavlova and top with freshly sliced nectarines and raspberries or fruit of your choice.


It’s not what’s under the tree that matters, but who’s gathered around it.
