Dairyfree Almond Rainbow Latte and Feel Good Marmalade Candies

Dairyfree almond rainbow latte and feel good marmalade candies

Hey, lovely! The winter is slowly coming to Helsinki, but the snow is still missing. The darkness feels quite overwhelming at times: the sun rises around 8-9 and and sets after four, and every night our little girl goes to window and starts to wonder out loud how dark it really is – and she’s right: it’s really, really dark! While we keep on waiting for the snow to come I had to come up with something else that would cheer us up!

I’ve done co-operation with Lejos before, and last time I baked these cute rainbow sweet potato toasts using their almond milk. It seems that I’m almost addicted using more natural colors in my kitchen, and so I used them this time as well! As I mentioned, the situation over here required something cheery, and the result was simply lovely: warming, nutritious, delicious and bursting with colors!

May I present: Carrot cake latte and Red Velvet latte!

Most probably you’ve seen colorful lattes already popping up in Instagram and PInterest, and beetroot latte has been a thing for a while in many places and restaurants over the world. Spice turmeric latte (golden latte) starts to be old news already, but is still delicious and a real feel good drink as well. So, I can’t take credit for these really, and I’m thankful for the one who decided to add beetroot to the plant based milk in the first place: it’s lovely.

I saw the carrot juice powder at store one day, and instantly I saw the picture of carrot cake latte in my head – I simply had to try it! Carrot, as beetroot, has some natural sugars so it’s just sweet enough, but both of them has several health benefits, too! A perfect package, I’d say: just whip the almond milk and mix with beetroot or carrot juice “shot”, just like you’d be preparing cafe latte, and you’re good to go. So, so good!

Oh and there’s more! Because the Christmas is approaching as well, I prepared some feel good marmalede candies as well! I used NomNom – products, that are 100% fruits and berries, and covered them with high quality raw chocolate. Yum – so good, no need for other Christmas marmalede candies (that are popular over here): pure, real flavors of fruits and chocolate!

When you think about the Christmas (or any other kind) of candies, you might notice that the only natural thing about them is sugar. The most popular marmalede candies over here has only aromas and coloring, that will connect the taste they are representing. But not this time! These marmaledes are really made of strawberries, apple and raspberries, with some nutritious raw chocolate on top. Nothing more!

But let’s see the recipes then, shall we? Maybe you as well want to invite friends over for the most colorful latte cake – moment! They are so good in many ways: while sipping on these, you get the lovely taste and warming experience of pink or orange lattes, but as the same time you enjoy a lot of useful nutrients, that are always needed but especially during winter my body seems to crave more vitamins and antioxidants.

I hope you’ll love these cake lattes as well, stay warm!
