Not sure if you know the brand ‘The Coconut Collaborative‘, but it’s quite a fantastic brand, with lots of great vegan ice cream. Recently I see more and more stores and supermarkets selling this brand. What is really great! Last time I was at Sainsbury’s I saw these ‘Little Coconutters’, I’ve never seen before. They caught my eye because of the nice design on the packaging, with the blue leaves and cheeky monkeys. Coconut vanilla on a stick.. I couldn’t just walk passed this, could I? I’m totally nuts about coconut, so I got them. Good thing I did, because they’re totally delicious! The Coconut Collaborative did’t use refined sugar, but grape juice to make them sweet. What makes me like them even more. There are just too much products ruined by sugar nowadays. They’re not very big, but it’s also not gone within 2 bites, I would say they’re the perfect size. I didn’t try it yet, but I think if you’d blend them with a glass of plant-based milk and maybe even a piece of fruit (banana?) or a tablespoon of cacao powder, they make an amazing milkshake. I think they’re aiming for children, but they’re a super nice dessert or snack for adults too. With the days getting warmer and summer on its way, I only have one thing to say: Go and try these!
Do you remember the ‘pepper steak style pies‘ of ‘Fry’s Family‘ I reviewed before? This brand is amazing and the last time I was at Holland&Barret I saw these falafel burgers. They were not in a classic Fry’s package and I didn’t realise at first they were from Fry’s. They’re quite new! I really like this packaging much more, because I always thought the other packaging looks a bit cheap. This looks more appealing in my opinion. I obviously had to try them, as I love falafel and I like that there is no crap in these. Guilt free burgers! So I made my boyfriend and myself a nice falafel lunch in the weekend. I toasted some whole wheat pita breads and fried the burgers in a pan. To make them fit in the pita bread properly I cut the burger in half, in length (so I had 2 thin burgers). I put them in the bread, together with some iceberg lettuce, sliced tomatoes, gherkins and a good amount of houmous. It was very good and my boyfriend really liked it too! I was a little sceptical at first, because I thought they might be a little dry, because that is what you get a lot. But Fry’s did it again and created a yummy new burger. I like that there are corn pieces in there and some quinoa too. I bet they are very yummy on a proper burger bun too, with red onion rings and some chilli sauce. Perfect lunch!
