Move over Milky Way, there’s a new galaxy in my universe! I don’t know about you, but when I look at these I just get alllll the galaxy vibes with their gorgeous colors, spiraly shape, and sparkly star-like flakes.
I don’t know if it’s the fact that these meringues are gorgeously vibrant, or that they are served on a stick, or that they are made with aquafaba (or all the above) that just rocks my world. Or actually, it might even be the fact that they are colored naturally with Suncore Foods superfood, supercolor powders and hellooooo- they’re sparkly! (Again, most likely all of the above really makes these my new favorite treat!)
When I originally sought out to make these meringue pops I had a whole other idea in mind, I tried it and it was boring and they didn’t turn out well and I was super bummed. Recipe fails do happen my friend- like a lot more than us food bloggers let on.
Anyway, I had leftover meringue batter from my failed attempt at making something cool, and me being the kind of person who doesn’t like to waste any amount of food (because gluten-free and vegan baking is expensive y’all!) I just threw it all in the same piping bag and pipped these gorgeous meringues out onto 6-inch sucker lollipop sticks that I found at Walmart and holy stars they were perfect! Not getting too excited, I baked them and they came out even more gloriously vibrant than pre-oven! YESSSSSS!!! I can turn this “fail” into a major win! Then I sprinkled with Sparkly Amber Passion Fruit Flakes from Suncore Foods and found myself so madly in love with these gluten-free, vegan meringue pops that they just needed a permanent home on my blog!
Gluten-free, vegan baking can be really tricky and if you’ve visited my blog before you’ll know that I am quite obsessed with using aquafaba as an egg white replacement. It’s magical! So let’s just get right down to business, because I know you’re dying to learn how I “failed” to make these gorgeous “rainbow cookies on a stick” (is what my son calls them).
So we have all of the ingredients from my Beet + Blood Orange Macarons and my Pretty Pink Macarons with the addition of a few of my favorite Suncore Foods Supercolor Powders swirled together to make these gorgous pops! Theres:
☆ almond flour
☆ cream of tartar
☆ powdered sugar
☆ Pink Pitaya Supercolor Powder from Suncore Foods
☆ Blue Butterfly Pea Flower Supercolor Powder from Suncore Foods
☆ Carrot Orange Supercolor Powder from Suncore Foods
☆ aquafaba!! (if you have no idea what the heck this is, let me tell you- the genius that figured this out is like my new favorite person. It’s the brine from a can of chickpeas! You beat it with your electric mixer and it fluffs up like egg whites… no, I’m not joking… seriously it’s as miraculous as galaxies themselves)
☆ almond extract
☆ Sunfore Foods Sparkly Amber Passion Fruit Flakes for topping!
Other than the fact that these supercolor glimmering flakes are so much fun added to your recipes, they are also packed with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Passion fruits can also offer health benefits such as boosting immunity, improving insomnia, and reducing cholesterol and blood pressure levels. Some even believe that eating this tropical fruit will cause you to fall passionately in love with the next person that catches your gaze.* Oooh la la!
