Aquafaba

 ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™ Little Boy Blue! ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™

Today I made something I’ve never used before - aquafaba! 



If you haven’t heard of it before, it’s a fluffy mixture which vegans use to make cakes and other recipes. All you need is: chickpeas, a splash of lemon juice and food colouring of your choice. 

  1. Drain 2 tins of chickpeas into a bowl. You aren’t using the chickpeas themselves, so put aside for use in your cooking. 
  2. Add 1/2 a tsp of lemon juice. 
  3. Mix with an electric whisk until fluffy. 
  4. Add food colouring. 
  5. Whisk again to combine. 


That’s it! Now you have a great fluffy, sensory resource! 


For this activity, I went for ‘all things blue’ to line with our little boy blue rhyme (plus, of course, the little boys sheep and cow!) I made the aquafaba and put it into one half of my Ikea flisat table. 






It was great fun and Arlo really enjoyed the feeling of he fluffy foam.
