For those who are looking for a good alternative to cow’s milk or for those who want to make some lighter preparations, such as béchamel, crépes, pancakes … here is a vegetable drink with the right characteristics: do you remember almond milk? http://www.gustovegetariano.com/en/almond-drink/ Well … even the oat groats, after a few hours soaking, can be transformed, with a juice extractor, into an excellent drink.
Now you just have to choose the best way to use it 😉
It will also happen to you, occasionally, to forget some vegetables at the bottom of the refrigerator drawer, which are not so fresh and crisp as when you bought them. You find them there, in that anonymous paper bag and while you open it, your curiosity mixed with worry, turns into regret … You never have to despair, there are so many ways to reuse and transform something does not seem to have a future ☺ This is one of the simplest way: a fresh juice. Combine carrots, two apples, one lemon and ginger and you will feel gratified, drinking a good and refreshing juice. Happy for being able to give a creative answer to the question: “What am I doing with this?”.
I’ve met pancakes for the first time during a study holiday in England, many years ago ☺ Since then they have become a very special way to start a day.
Pancakes represent in our family a really “Special” breakfast. Generally, I prepare them with my children, on Sunday mornings, when there’s no school and the awakening is more gradual …. This is a vegan version, accompanied by the first strawberries of the season and some mint leaves. I will certainly publish many other variations … Meanwhile try this and tell me if you like 😉
A really enjoyable discovery: if you own a juice extractor you can make a very special almond drink.
Here is the simple and quick recipe to get a good alternative to milk. How do I prefer it more? Warmed up and enriched with bitter cocoa and brown sugar, or fresh and raw with a cup of crunchy mix.
Let me know if you like it 😉
After a period of festivities like the one we have just passed, during which we generally eat a lot of sweet things and we cook traditional rich plates, starting the day with a good extract is very pleasant; my body really need it. If you do not have a juice extractor, you can use a blender, but in this case the juice you get, will keep all the fibers and will have a different consistency; also your body could have a bit more difficulties to assimilate it. I love extracts because they are more pleasent to drink …. But I invite you to try both experiences and choose the one you prefer.
