Enjoy a vegan version of Eton mess using aquafaba instead of egg whites to make the crunchy meringue, mixed with coconut yogurt and rose-scented berries

How to make the perfect vegan Eton mess:

  • Tip a 400g can of chickpeas into a sieve over a large bowl. Reserve the chickpeas for other recipes.
  • Whisk the water from the can (or 'aquafaba') to soft peaks, then add 100g golden caster sugar. Whisk again.
  • Gently drop dessert-sized spoonfuls of the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with baking paper.
  • Bake for 1hr 15mins at 110C/90C Fan/gas mark 1. Then cool.
  • Add 500g mixed berries to a large bowl, sprinkle over 2 tbsp icing sugar and ½ tbsp rose water. Leave for 20 mins.
  • Add 400ml coconut yogurt to a bowl.
  • Crush the meringues with your hands and add to the yogurt, then add 1/3 of the the fruit and mix.
  • Split between glasses, top with the remaining fruit, a little of the fruit juices and some rose petals.
