Following on from my vegan chocolate nicecream recipe last weekend, I have been obsessed with creating new healthy(ish) chocolate smoothie recipes. This crunchy chocolate caramel milkshake is the perfect mixture of creamy caramel chocolate-ness and crunchy biscuit bits (thanks to my favourite lotus biscuits), and I seriously can’t get enough! It’s so quick and easy to make so is the perfect breakfast treat, but also makes a great dessert. I hope you all love it as much as I do!
I have always loved lotus biscuits (you know, those little biscuits you get given with coffee) so when I found out that Lotus had brought out a spread I was beyond excited! If, unlike me, you have more self respect than to sit at the back of your lecture theatre dipping lotus biscuits into lotus spread, then I’ve created 2 mouth watering recipes for you to enjoy this delicious spread:
1. LOTUS SPREAD SMOOTHIE
Ingredients: 3 bananas, 1 tablespoon lotus spread, 1 cup almond milk & one handful ice.
Instructions: chop bananas into chunks, place all ingredients into blender, then blend for one minute or until smooth & enjoy!
2. LOTUS SPREAD CUPCAKES
3 cups self-raising flour
2 cups almond milk (/other non-dairy milk)
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon egg replacer
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees
Mix flour, almond milk, brown sugar, baking powder and egg replacer together
Cook in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until brown on top
Leave cakes to stand for 10 minutes
Decorate cakes with lotus spread
Have any of you tried lotus spread, if so what do you think?
