Sweet Coco Love

sIt’s nice by itself, as a starter or a side.. Soup is always good! And I don’t think I only speak for myself if I say rich creamy soups are the best. Soup is perfect for a rainy autumn day or for when it’s snowing in the winter, but to be honest, I think soup is always a good idea! This soup makes me very very happy. I combined 2 of my favourite things: Sweet potatoes and coconut cream. Before I even made this recipe I knew it was going to be heavenly. And I was right. It’s so creamy, full of flavour, filling and very healthy. Does this sound good to you? Where are you waiting for?

ChOCO Dream

13499852_1178672795510155_944827911_oFor this recipe I was inspired by a Dutch cake, called ‘Arretjescake’. It’s actually with eggs and a lot of butter. It’s a very unhealthy cake, but super delicious. The recipe I made is not only vegan and super delicious, it’s also healthy. Or actually there is an option to make it all healthy. There are biscuits used in this cake. If you decide to make healthy biscuits before making this recipe, the whole cake would be healthy. The cake is very filling, that’s why it’s quite small. In case you have to treat a lot of people, you can always easily double the recipe. Use a little cake tin or any small dish, but if you double it, you can easily use a standard cake tin.
One of my aunts always made this recipe and whenever there was a party at her house, I always chose this cake. I could really get excited if I knew she made one. I hope you get just as excited after tasting it. It’s super easy, fast and does not require any baking. Everybody can make this!

Biscuit Feast

13446222_1169109249799843_707711809_oThis is probably the easiest recipe there is. You only need 2 ingredients to have something very yummy. It also doesn’t take a lot or preparation, you probably always have these ingredients anyway, it doesn’t take long before you can enjoy and it’s easy to share. So many reasons to just try this!

These biscuits are amazing, because it’s a guilt free snack and you could even have them for breakfast if you please. Perfect for on the way, but also at home. I once had them with warm almond milk. Yum!
The only thing you need are ripe bananas and oats. Though this is the basic recipe, you can add a lot to it and give it your own personal little twist. I will give you 2 options today and maybe, if you guys like this, I can give you a different version every now and then. Or maybe you have requests? Let me know!
