Vegan Meringue Recipes: The Ultimate Guide
There’s nothing quite like crunching your spoon through a vegan meringue that’s crisp on the outside and just a little gooey inside; be that as part of a pavlova, Eton mess or even a lemon meringue pie. Here are our favourite plant-based ways to get the perfect pud.
Whether you're a complete vegan meringue novice or you’ve been making them for years and you’re just in search of fresh inspiration, you’ll find a recipe to suit your needs here.
Val’s delicious vegan meringue recipes
You only need two ingredients to make these light and airy vegan meringues with a perfect crunch: sugar and chickpea water (also known as aquafaba). Once you’ve mastered this base recipe, the world of plant-based meringue desserts is at your mercy. Val even includes instructions on how to make chocolate swirled vegan meringues in this recipe too.
Who isn’t immediately transported back to childhood summer days with the taste of an Eton mess? This recipe uses coconut cream, mint, orange and dark chocolate shavings, lending this dessert to the winter months too.

This recipe from School Night Vegan is the perfect example of Italian-style aquafaba meringue (the technique where you blow torch your meringue to cook it – fun, right?!). It’s a crisp pastry casing filled with a tart lemon curd and magically topped off with generous quantities of vegan meringue.

We love this recipe from Cook Veggielicious. It makes a dreamy pink meringue that’s kept company by whipped coconut cream and fresh mixed berries, although if out of season, defrosted frozen berries will work just as well. It’s designed for sharing, but we won’t tell anyone if you don’t want to.

This recipe from The Lazy Cat Kitchen makes perfect meringue bites that look every bit as great as they taste. They make the ideal homemade gift wrapped up in a tin or even a great party offering arranged lovingly on a platter.
