Magical Vegan Pavlova
We come from the land down under, and we couldn't think of anything more Australian than a good old pavlova! We have adapted the traditional recipe slightly so that those who are dairy intolerant can still indulge in this true Aussie Favourite.
1 cup aquafaba (drained from a can of chickpeas)
2.5 cups icing sugar
2 tbsp corn starch
1.5 tsp white wine vinegar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups Kingland Dairy Free Natural Yogurt
Sliced fruits of your choice
Preheat oven to 350 F
Using an standmixer, whip the aquafaba on high-speed until it forms stiff peaks.
Reduce the speed to medium and slowly add the powdered sugar. Once all the sugar is added, increase the speed to high until you get an even, fluffy mix. Don't over do it!
Reduce the speed to low and add the remaining ingredients.
Scoop the mixture on to a cookie sheet (or 2) lined with parchment paper or silpat. You will want to make 6 circles of meringue that are about 4 inches across. They might spread a bit in the oven, so give them a little room. You might need 2 cookie sheets!
PUT THE PAVLOVA IN THE OVEN AND TURN THE TEMPERATURE DOWN TO 150 DEGREES CELCIUS IMMEDIATELY.
Bake for 90 minutes, then turn off the oven.
Prop the oven door open with a wooden spoon and let the pavlova cool completely.
Don't worry if they look cracked or collapsed in the middle, you are can easily cover it up!
Once they are cool, add dollop of whipped yogurt and spread it around.
Top with a mixture of your favourite fruits.
