You have probably seen Acai bowls everywhere on Instagram. They have become #instafamous so to say and seem to be this year’s “kale”. When I got the chance to try out the powder of the famous South American berry for the first time, I wanted to make something different, something that is sweet and decadent. Raw cacao and acai seemed to be a good pairing, well it turns out even perfect! Continue Reading…
Christmas is very close and it is time for recipe Number 3: delicious and festive Toffee Nut Truffles! Today’s recipe is inspired by Starbucks’ ‘Toffee Nut Latte’, a long-time favorite of mine! Although it has received some serious competition by the delicious ‘Chestnut Praline Latte’ I had for the first time in New York this year. Another festive drink Starbucks has deprived us of in Austria!
I had my first pumpin pie last year in New York at my very first Thanksgiving dinner. Since then I wanted to recreate my own. With pumpkin season finally upon us, it seemed perfect to create my own pumpkin pie recipe and giving a beloved classic a little twist: Pumpkin Pie with Marzipan!
The idea for a Spiced Mocha Latte came to me as I was reading that Nespresso is hosting a contest. Last week the ingredient of choice was chocolate, along coffee and milk. Instead of a regular mocha, I wanted to created an aromatic, spice-infused version that will warm you up from the inside. My spices of choice were cardamon, cloves and cinnamon, making my home smell like Christmas! In my opionion it’s never too early for that ;)
Today I have something quite special for you to make: Indulge in homemade, decadent whipped Nutella! You can thank me later ;)
Once you have tried homemade Nutella you won’t go back to the store-bought kind. And it is so easy to make! Once you have your hazelnuts sorted out (=skinned), the food processor or blender will basically do the job for you. My whipped Nutella is also healthier. You won’t need any additional oil and there are no artificial flavors or other nasties added. You can alter the chocolate to your preference and could even try to make a dairy-free version, using dark chocolate.
Ever since being at the Press Day for all i need, I was thinking of different ways to mix it into a drink. Raspberries seemed to harmonize with the açaí and aronia berries in all i need. A squeeze of lime juice and mint leaves always work! And that is how a delicious drink was created in my mind using all natural ingredients!
