Rooibos Mandarin Crema Catalana

Rooibos Mandarin Crema Catalana

While visiting Barcelona recently, I enjoyed my very first Crema Catalana. It is the Spanish version of the French Crème Brulée. The original Crema Catalana is lighter than Crème Brulée and the lemon or orange zest adds a beautiful fruity flavor. In my recipe, I went a bit further and made the fruity part with mandarins and rooibos tea from South Africa, my second home. “Crème a la South Afrique” could have been another name for this 😉

Matcha Banana Ice Cream

Matcha Banana Ice Cream

Love ice cream and healthy homemade desserts, sugar-free yet absolutely delicious? Then this recipe is for you, and you don’t even need an ice cream maker. At the moment I’m in love with Matcha (Green Tea). Its slightly herbal taste combined with something creamy and sweet is a great taste experience. One day I had Matcha ice cream prepared for dinner with friends, but I realized it wasn’t enough for everyone. Looking for additional ingredients to add, I picked bananas. It was a winner, nicely enhancing the Matcha flavor and adding a creamy texture. Our guests loved it, and now we always have some Matcha Banana Ice Cream in our freezer.

Matchicoco Creme

Matchicoco Creme

I’m totally in love with Matcha Green Tea. I could add it to any kind of meal I’m creating at the moment. The slightly bitter and well balanced herbal taste is very delicious and I will soon try to add it even in savory dishes. This time it was girl’s night again and I created a completely carb-free, sugar-free, vegan, and very healthy dessert recipe. Because chia seeds and coconut flakes are also part of it, we came up with the fun name of “Matchicoco”.

Carb-Free Key Lime Cheesecake

Carb-Free Key Lime Cheesecake

During our recent trip to Florida, we have been asking people about the most well known Florida recipe. With hardly any exception, everyone pointed us to the delicious Key Lime Pie, made with fresh little limes from the Florida Keys. With this in mind, I started creating a version of a carb-free tropical Key Lime Cheesecake – and yes, without any sugar or carbs! I hope you find it as delicious as we did.

White Chocolate Mousse with Strawberry Ragout

This recipe is inspired by a very good friend of mine who came to our house one day with the most awesome vegan dark chocolate mousse. The fluffy texture was outstanding. Based on her recipe, I tried to create a white chocolate mousse. It took me a few tries until I got it right, but the following recipe is the perfect outcome. It’s quick, easy, and very delicious!
