Switch eggs with aqua faba and bake for yourself these lovely delicious and TOTALLY vegan Avocado Matcha Macarons

These vegan Matcha Tea Macarons have beautiful white almond macaron shells and a rich and vibrantly green matcha-avocado pastry cream filling.

Even though this is a vegan recipe, it is still delicious. The key ingredient to making these delectable treats is the aqua faba - a wonderful substitute for eggs.

Aqua faba has similar properties to egg whites but comes without the typical egg white smell, and many great desserts with aqua faba still obtain the same richness, softness and fluffiness you get from egg whites.

So why not skip the eggs for a day, and try these luscious vegan almond matcha macarons.    

Vegan Matcha French Macarons

Ingredients

  • 150ml aqua faba (reduced from two 15-oz or 425-g cans of organic garbanzo beans)
  • 200g almond flour
  • 200g organic powdered sugar
  • 200g organic refined sugar
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 tsp organic almond extract (vanilla works)
  • 1-2 tbs organic matcha powder
  • 2 ripe organic avocados
  • ½ cup organic agave syrup (or other sweeteners)
  • 1 tbsp organic coconut oil
  • Organic shredded coconut (optional)

Instructions

  1. Transfer and simmer the water from two 15oz garbanzo beans cans in a small saucepan for about 15 minutes, which should yield roughly 150ml of aqua faba.
  2. Transfer the bean water to a smaller container and refrigerate it.
  3. Sift almond flour and powdered sugar in a large bowl to prevent lumps from forming, before mixing together.
  4. Pour the prepared aqua faba into the mixer, whisk on high until frothy with the foam holding its shape.
  5. Add the almond extract and 100g of the refined sugar, and whisk in a cake mixer for about one minute.
  6. Add the remaining refined sugar, whisking until it reaches its peak.
  7. Add in the almond flour mixture gradually, gently folding it into the mixture.
  8. Transfer the batter into a pastry bag with a half-inch round tip.
  9. Pipe1.5” round shapes on a sheet of parchment paper, about½ inches apart.
  10. Repeat until all the batter is used up.
  11. Remove any air bubbles by dropping the tray on the table a few times.
  12. Set the mix aside for two hours until the outside shell dries up.
  13. Bake one tray at a time in a preheated oven at 99°C for 30 minutes.
  14. Turn the oven off and leave the tray in for 15 minutes, before opening the oven door and leaving it for another 15 minutes.
  15. Repeat with another tray while the previous one cools down.
  16. In a blender, combine the avocados, coconut oil, agave syrup, and matcha powder until smooth.
  17. Transfer the filling into a piping bag with a small round tip.
  18. Fill half of the macaron shells and place the remaining shells on top to create a macaron.
  19. Roll the sides of the macarons on shredded coconut (optional).
  20. Refrigerate the macarons to give them a softer texture.

Organic Matcha Ceremonial Grade - 100g Bag (3.5oz)

Lovely green color powder

First matcha purchase!

So far I have made tea cookies, raw nut/fruit balls, smoothies, and plain matcha with cashew milk and it's all good to me! Don't have much to compare it to but a chain coffee shop latte experience years ago. I learned the amazing benefits that make the cost of matcha well worth the price.

I have yet to receive my order

This review is not about the quality of the set, but based on my customer service experience. Placed my order on April 13th, got shipping notification on April 14th, and the last shipping notification I got was April 16th saying USPS was awaiting the item in Buena Vista, CA. Emailed customer service April 22nd and received a response the same day from a member of your team saying he would inform me once he receives info from usps. I also contact usps and they stated they have no information regarding the package. As of today, April 27th, I have yet to receive any information about my order. This was meant as a gift that will now be late. Was very excited to try the set and the matcha, but this experience makes me doubt if I will order from Kenko again, unfortunately. Would appreciate this problem being solved as soon as possible. Thank you.
