….those crunchy sweet “crumbles” on top of the sweet fruit combination of Strawberries and Rhubarb pieces, with this irresistible Apple Vanilla Cream…Sweet dreams come true. I think I have a new favorite dessert!
While I made the crumbles they looked just perfect…but what happened while I was baking them? Instead of keeping the shape of round crumbles, it all just melted to a nice and crunchy crust on top. Not really what I wanted, but at least it didn’t effect the taste.
The opinions vary when it comes to Coffee and health. I believe, as I believe with almost everything “the dose makes the poison” (Thanks Mr. Paracelsus…what would we do without you?! Probably drink ourselfs to death with Coffee Smoothies…)
For all Coffee Lovers, here my Recipe for my vegan Energy Boost Coffee Smoothie. Sometimes with Cacao, sometimes with Vanilla, but always luscious!
It’s the perfect breakfast or lunch or just your little (big) treat for the day…
Seriously, if I could, I would swimm in it.
They are high in potassium and magnesium. Saturate quickly and persistently. Why Chia Seeds:
Chia contain 5x more Calcium then milk. Also it has lots of antioxidants and omg3 Why Almonds:
Much of vitamin E, beta-carotene, calcium, iron and B vitamins. Even the rare trace elements zinc, selenium and fluoride are found in almonds. Why Cacao:
It is rich in protein and contains plenty of fiber. The gently stimulating effect, which many feel in cocoa, is based on its content of theobromine, theophylline, and (very little) caffeine. It contains magnesium and potassium as well as valuable antioxidants that protect our cells from free radicals and premature aging. It has a mood-lifting effect through serotonin and dopamine. Cocoa is also good for the heart and circulation, as the flavonols (phytochemicals) make the blood vessels more elastic and can lower the blood pressure. Why Vanilla:
The scent of vanilla can relieve stress, restlessness, anxiety, depression, insomnia and feelings of hunger. Reason is that vanilla stimulates the production of the happiness hormone serotonin in the brain.
It is effective for stomach upsets, sickness during pregnancy and cough
Mini Gugels, coming from “Gugelhupf”, also knows as: Gugelhopf, Napfkuchen, Topfkuchen, Rodonkuchen or Bundt cake – usually in a big Bundt Form, and mostly a simple dough with raisins. I got me one of those Mini Gugel Forms….to make one-bite-size Gugels. You can fill the hole with chocolate sauce, cream cheese filling, butter cream filling or icing and decorate them the way you like.
I decided to make vegan Vanilla Coconut Gugels, but the variations are endless! Bake them only 11 minutes in the oven, to keep them moist and soft. The perfect sweet treat for you and your friends with coffee and tea or bring them to your next party…they will love’em
Have a great weekend and hopefully a delicious one!
