As seen at the Bayou VegFest in downtown Houma!
Were you at Bayou VegFest? Did you come have some hot chocolate and marshmallow fluff with me? I wanted to put up a quick post with the details of what I made.
For the hot chocolate:
I put Silk brand dark chocolate almond milk in my Instant Pot on Sauté until it warmed up. This is no secret recipe, just a reminder that vegan hot chocolate is easy as can be- and nothing to be intimidated by!
For the marshmallow fluff:
Using my KitchenAid mixer (which shook my whole table), I whipped the aquafaba and cream of tartar on high until the liquid became of foamy and creamy. Then I added a little powdered sugar at a time until the mixture became shiny and fluffy like marshmallow fluff, mixing on high speed.
*You can also make your own beans from dry and use the liquid for your aquafaba. I like to make beans in my instant pot (there's a bean setting) and then I reduce the aquafaba a bit after draining out the beans to get an even thicker and more fluffy liquid.
When I got home, I made a bean and veggie soup with the beans in my Instant Pot in just a few minutes. It was SUCH a great day and it was so nice to meet so many of you.
For a savory use for Aquafaba, you can make your own vegan mayonnaise!
If you are on Facebook, check out the group, Aquafaba (Vegan Meringue- Hits and Misses) for lots of tips, recipes, and troubleshooting using this fun bean liquid!
If you visited my table and wanted to purchase one of my books, here are links to all of them:
I wrote a children's book, How Our Vegan Family Celebrates, to help vegans and vegan allies know how to include vegans in their celebrations and give affirmation to vegan kids who may feel alone. The book goes through holidays throughout the year and has a section at the back with parent tips!

I love cooking and playing in the kitchen with my toys, so let me share that joy with you and your family to bring the FUN back into the kitchen!
