Vegan Raspberry Meringues #aquafaba

Obsession. It’s more than just a Calvin Klein fragrance.

I just have one of those brains that latches onto something and won’t let go. So when I get obsessed with something… I go down that rabbit hole, big time.

Lately, it’s been natural food colourings. First, it was the Butterfly Pea Tea. Then it was the beet powder. Today, it’s raspberries.

You can make a raspberry powder in a similar way to making the beet powder: dehydrate and then grind. In this case, I skipped the juicing step, and just loaded the berries into my dehydrator. You could do this similarly with strawberries, but just cut them into slices first.

Once you have the powder, you can use it to impart raspberry flavour to all kinds of things: brownies were the first thing that sprang to mind, but I also wanted to see if could make a Vegan Raspberry Meringues using aquafaba. And to make it extra pretty, I wanted to try making it a swirl. Turns out, it works great, and how pretty are these?
