We tried a fantastic recipe for you today. A lovely vegan alternative for a hot drink with marshmallows.
We tested the cute Freedom Mallows with our usual creamy alproccino and they were delicious.
Freedom Mallows are lovely marshmallows but with no nasties and vegetarian/vegan friendly.
Here is how we prepared it:
We brew a cup of OrzoCoffee with our lovely Orziera. On the side we prepared some warm Alpro soya milk and used a milk frother jug to create a creamy and velvety top to our cappuccino.
Time to decorate with the sweet Freedom Mallows (we made a flower but what other shapes can you make?).
This is a lovely drink but it is extra 'lush' with this creamy vanilla mallows floating around :-) enjoy it!
This is a super-creamy dessert, perfect after-dinner or as mid-afternoon break.
We used vegan ingredients but it can be prepared using normal milk and butter (as you preferred).
It is super-easy to make !
- 125 g of risotto / pudding rice
- 150 ml of water
- 3 tbs of instant Orzo♥Coffee
- 500ml of soya milk (you can also use normal milk or almond milk)
- 25 g of butter (we used soya margarine)
- 1tbs of caster sugar
To decorate: cacao dusting; chocolate drops or whipped cream
Rinse the rice before use. Place with the water in medium pan. Bring to the boil and then let it simmer for 5 minutes. Add the instant Orzo♥Coffee, stir well and add the (soya) milk. Bring to boil and allow to simmer gently for 20-30 minutes. Remember to stir frequently until the rice has become tender and the milk creamy and thick.
Once ready, remove from the stove and add the butter (or soya margarine) and the caster sugar. You could also add a tablespoon of rum or amaretto (for adults only).
Leave the rice pudding to stand for 15 minutes. Serve in individual coffee cups and decorate. You can add some whipped cream on the top or some chocolate drops or simply some cacao dusting.
This lovely cream dessert is perfect to enjoy warm but you can also place it in the fridge and eat cold the day after!
It is pancake day!To celebrate the day, treat yourself to some lovely Orzo♥Pancakes the recipe is very simple and they are perfect for breakfast and an afternoon treat.
In one bowl mix together the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt). In a small cup dissolve the 2 tbsp of Orzo♥Coffee with a little hot water (1 tbsp of water should be enough). In a separate bowl wish together egg, milk, maple syrup and then add the dissolved Orzo♥Coffee. Time to mix together dry and wet ingredients, to obtain a creamy and silk pancake mix.
Time to pour your mix in the hot pancake pan. We use heart shaped moulds to obtain heart shaped pancakes (St Valentine is very close after all!). Leave the mix to harden and then turn around the pancake after a minute or so.
280 g of rice flour
190 g of margarine
70 g of icing sugar
1 egg yolk
3 tbsp of instant OrzoCoffee
1 tbsp of barley malt extract (dissolved in half a glass of warm milk)
This recipes uses a biscuit press, as the dough is very soft.
Mix the margarine with the sugar. Add the egg yolk and mix again.
Add the instant OrzoCoffee and the flour little by little. When the dough has become too hard to mix, gradually add the warm milk with the barley malt extract.
It is now time to work the dough with your hands, making it very smooth and homogeneous. Put the dough in the fridge for 10 minutes.
You can now put the dough in the cookie press and create your BISCORZI directly over a greaseproof paper ready to go in the oven.
Place in the oven at 170° for 15 minutes.
Enjoy your BISCORZI with a freshly brewed Orzo Coffee :-)
We know already how well the lovely taste of halzenut complement our Orzo♥Coffee but we really do not like adding syrups or flavouring to our 100% natural orzo...so we found a great new solution: Alpro Halzenut Orzo♥Latte.
Just brew your usual Orzo♥Coffee and on the side warm up some Alpro Halzenut ( no lactose or animal fat, and no artificial flavours, colours or preservatives but still full of taste - just want we like!). Add Alpro Halzenut to your cup of Orzo♥Coffee. You can even add a sprinkle of cocoa. It is the best healthy treat for this cold weather!
