These are great puddings – I’ve topped our Vegan Pavlova’s with oranges soaked in Triple Sec and topped with candied peel. But if you prefer raspberries, or blackberries just throw them on. Naturally Strawberries are the choice for a summer Vegan Pavlova but Christmas is coming up so I went for Oranges. Pavlova’s are easier than you’d imagine – especially with Aquafaba around for meringues. It’s really just a matter of putting it all together in a sensible way. It’s a great dessert if you are having people around as you can keep the components separate and put it together at the appropriate time. I’ve used a piping bag with a wide nozzle for these – but if you like just spoon the meringue onto the baking sheet and use the back of the spoon to shape.
These are individual Vegan Pavlova’s so if you like you could put a meringue on each plate, top with whipped coconut cream and then present your guests with a range of toppings – stewed rhubarb, fresh berries, oranges, lightly stewed cranberries are all good choices.
For the orange topping, work on half an orange per person, and 1/2 tbsp of orange peel to candie.
