Dessert . Kids

This dessert is a real show-stopper. Not only is it really just an “assembly” dessert that can be put together in 10 minutes, it tastes incredible and covers you for dairy free and even vegan (depending on your lemon curd) catering all in one go these holidays! It’s that simple, even the kids can help with putting it together!

Ingredients to make meringues (2 to 4 servings)
120mls chickpea liquid – aquafaba
150g white sugar

Ingredients for assembly
1 punnet of fresh strawberries
1 orange
1 punnet of raspberries
Lemon curd
500mls COYO Dairy Free Vanilla Custard
Passionfruit pulp
Edible flowers


Instructions for Vegan Pavlovas (or you can buy them ready made)
1. Separate the chickpeas from their liquid by draining through a sieve. Once the liquid is separate, refrain the liquid back again through the sieve to remove any smaller debris.
2. Next, whisk the aquafaba with an electric beater on high for approximately 5 minutes, to create a fluffy and thick white foam.
3. Continue whisking while slowly adding 2 tablespoons of sugar at a time, until all sugar has been whisked in, then continue to whisk for a further two minutes. Using a timer is a good idea!
4. Preheat your oven to 90 degrees.
5. Line a baking tray with baking paper and spoon heaped tablespoons onto the tray in cup sized pieces. Bake for approximately an hour or more depending on size and dryness desired, but don’t be tempted to open the oven.
6. Once ready remove and allow to completely cool
