Easily turn the liquid from canned chickpeas into a sweet, fluffy vegan whipped topping with this easy Aquafaba Whipped Cream recipe!
This amazing creamy topping is fat-free, nut-free, gluten-free, and soy-free too, made without any coconut cream or added oils.
Why This Aquafaba Whipped Cream Recipe is So Good
- It's like magic! Seriously, the liquid in a can of chickpeas that you'd normally throw away can be turned into the most delicious and creamy whipped topping! You might never look at a can of garbanzo beans the same way again.
- Aquafaba whipped cream is a healthy alternative. Not only is this recipe dairy free and vegan, but because it's plant-based, it's fat-free, low-calorie, and all-natural.
Tips and Tricks for Making Aquafaba Whipped Cream
- For this sweet aquafaba recipe, be sure to use canned garbanzo beans with no salt added.
- You can use any type of white bean liquid in place of chickpeas too!
- Cream of tartar is a key ingredient in this recipe, as it helps to stabilize the mixture and turn the chickpea liquid into fluffy, airy whipped cream. Be sure that your cream of tartar is fresh and not expired. You can also use the same amount of lemon juice to get a similar effect.
- Be Patient! It can take up to 10 minutes or longer for the aquafaba to turn into whipped cream.
- If you want your aquafaba whipped cream to be extra rich and thick, you can add up to 2 tablespoons of neutral oil like canola or refined coconut oil at the last minute, and mix it in. Don't overmix after adding the oil, or the whipped topping will lose its fluff!

Aquafaba Whipped Cream
- Add the chickpea liquid and cream of tartar to the bowl of an electric stand mixer with the whisk attachment fitted.
- Whisk for 6-8 minutes, starting slowly and gradually increasing the speed to high, until white and fluffy with stiff peaks formed.
- Sift in the powdered sugar and add the vanilla extract.
- Whisk for another minute until well combined.
- Serve over fresh berries or as a topping for your favorite pies, tarts or cakes.
- Aquafaba whipped cream is best served immediately after whipping, as it may begin to lose its fluffiness after storing it in the fridge.
- You can also freeze this to make your own vegan cool whip!
- An electric hand mixer can be used instead of a stand mixer.
