Aquafaba Whipped Cream 


 Egg White Replacer– Whipped aquafaba can be used in place of whipped egg whites in recipes by folding it into the batter or mixing ingredients into the whipped batter, such as aquafaba whipped cream

Storage Tips – Whipped aquafaba does not store well long term in the freezer. However, aquafaba brine (liquid) can be frozen in an ice tray for 2 to 3 months. 

 Cooking Tips- Aquafaba from scratch is more time-consuming but doable. You have to soak dried chickpeas, then cook them. After that, you simmer the cooking liquid down to the consistency of the canned liquid/brine. Consistency is similar to that of liquid egg whites, but yellow/brown.
