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 sticks 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!

Galaxy Meringue Pops (Gluten-Free, Vegan)

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 15 min

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup super fine almond flour
  • 1 + 1/4 cup organic powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tarter
  • 1/2 tsp pure almond extract
  • 1 can chickpea brine (aquafaba)
  • 1 tsp pink pitaya powder (from Suncore Foods)
  • 1/2 tsp blue butterfly pea flower powder (from Suncore Foods)
  • 1 tsp orange carrot powder (from Suncore Foods)
  • Sparkly Amber Passion Fruit Flakes (from Suncore Foods)
  • sucker sticks

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 250 degrees

  2. Sift your almond flour and 1 cup of the powdered sugar into a medium bowl so that you have a very fine mixture. Set aside

  3. Place your chickpea brine in your stand mixer (or in a large bowl) and whip on high speed until soft peaks start to form. This will take about 5 minutes

  4. Blend in the cream of tartar, remaining 1/4 cup of powdered sugar, and almond extract and beat for an additional couple of minutes

  5. Next, turn off your blender and gently fold in your almond flour mixture with a spatula

  6. Split your mixutre into 3 different bowls

  7. Add the pink pitaya powder to one, and gently fold in until the batter is pink

  8. Add the blue butterfly pea flower powder to a different bowl, and gently fold in until the batter is blue

  9. Add the orange carrot powder to the last one, and gently fold in until the batter is a light orange

  10. Add parchment paper to a flat baking sheet (I prefer to use one with no edges) and line up your sticks allowing room to pipe 3-4 inch round circles

  11. Transfer your batter mixtures into a piping bag trying to keep each of the 3 colors in seperate sections of the bag and pipe 3-4-inch round circles on the lined tray (making sure to space out the meringues so they don't touch). Repeat for all of the batter

  12. You can sprinkle with the sparkly amber passion fruit flakes prior to baking but know they won't be sparkly. I added these both before and after baking (garnishing after allows them to keep their sparkle!)

  13. Bake for about 15-20 minutes then turn the oven off and let the meringues cool slowly. I kept mine in there for about an hour just because I wasn't in a rush, but know that if you take them out and there's an extreme temperature change they will deflate and sink in

  14. When cool, sprinkle with more sparkly passionfruit flakes

  15. Store in the fridge (this will crisp them up, so if you desire chewy meringue pops, allow them to sit out for about 5-10 minutes)

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pancakes

Hey everyone - I’m Shivani from ‘Shivani Loves Food’, and I’m so excited to be guest posting on Gina’s incredible blog!  Today I am sharing a recipe for something which is universally approved. Naturally, I wanted to make a good impression on you, and let’s be real, talking about my love for broccoli probably isn’t the best way to do that! So, I turned towards my second love: pancakes (okay pancakes take the top spot and you know it). These aren’t just any old pancakes. These deliciously fluffy peanut butter banana pancakes are scattered with fresh berries and drizzled in rich chocolate peanut butter sauce. Swoon! Okay, let’s talk more about these Chocolate Peanut Butter Pancakes. You only need 5

It’s no secret that I am already obsessed with tahini, which y’all know is a paste made from ground up sesame seeds, but I’m gettin’ crazy today and using these nutrient-rich seeds both ground and whole in these gluten-free, vegan cookies that only require 4 ingredients, and about 15 minutes of your time. It all started when I was brainstorming on ways to use my New Chapter Fermented Black Seed Booster Powder. Sure you

The product mentioned in this post was sent to me as a gift to use in this recipe, thank you so much!  Until recently I forgot about shortcake, you know- the strawberry kind. I forgot how much I love this classic dessert and just how simple it is to make. My dad had the idea to make it for Easter this year and with a two year old and two month old I was all on board for an easy dessert. If you're like me (and this may be showing my age...) the strawberry shortcake from my childhood included those store bought spongy shortcake cups, sliced strawberries, and Reddi Whip. Not really all that impressive, but I sure did love it. So

We then proceeded to slide downhill with everything being a catastrophie (talk about the terrible twos) and a growth spurt where eating non-stop seemed to be the only thing that would satisfy my little miss. I know you mammas feel me, I barely had time to brush my teeth and change out of my pajamas before the next mood would strike and super mommy was called to the rescue. Which by the way, my

She has a full-time job in strategy consulting and loves spending her free time creating vegan recipes for her blog Avobelle. Her main goal is to “veganize” everyday and traditional Swiss dishes, which are mostly full of butter, cheese, etc. and show that plant-based eating poses no restriction in any way and that every dish can be prepared just as well without animal products! Follow along on her Instagram! When deciding on what recipe to create for my guest post for lovely Gina, it was soon clear to me that it had to be something sweet. After all, we both seem to love cookies and desserts! So I started brainstorming, recipe testing, and,

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Love Beets. The opinions and text are all mine.   This is a story, a love story, about when pizza met hummus, hummus met beets and it was magical! You see, when you're me- the pizza possibilities are endless. The day I decided to pair hummus and pizza together ranks right up there with the day peanut butter met chocolate... For this particular pizza recipe, I decided to marry one of my all time favs with my newest obsession- Love Beets for one unBEETable pizza creation! You take your favorite pizza crust recipe and combine it with beet powder, then top it with beet hummus, red onion, arugula, cooked baby beets, peas, avocado, and toasted pine nuts.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Suncore Foods. The opinions and text are all mine. The Suncore product mentioned in this post was sent to me as a gift to use in this recipe, thank you so much!  I've been dying to make some kind of popsicles for quite a while now, but I have been waiting for the right recipe idea to strike... Then Suncore Foods launched their Premium Midori Jade Matcha Supercolor Powder and I knew it was time to bust out the popsicle mold I bought last summer (that I haven't yet used). We've been having some pretty nice weather here in Ohio- so it was definitly Mother Nature pretty much begging me to make them asap! These Avocado Banana Matcha Creamsicles are creamy and dreamy and represent all things
