It starts getting really cold in Germany and especially in the mornings it’s so dark and chilly. A great time for some warm comfort food, a blanket and movies. This delicious warm vanilla rice pudding is exactly what I needed for Breakfast last weekend. I made it with vanilla flavored soy milk, frozen cherries and loads of cinnamon. This is perfect!
This tasty meal is suitable for a dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan diet. You can use frozen, canned or fresh cherries, depending on your taste and availability. I used for this recipe frozen ones as I love the combination of hot and cold ingredients, like ice-cream with hot cherries. This recipe works just the other way round…
Sweet ripe bananas, vanilla flavored soy milk and cinnamon. It’s such a creamy and sweet smoothie you won’t believe that there is no artificial sugar on inside.

If you tried and liked my Banana Chocolate Smoothie you might love this one too! The scent and taste of cinnamon, vanilla and bananas in the morning is so delightful…

This tasty and nutritious banana chocolate protein smoothie is a perfect breakfast or post-workout treat. I made it with bananas, water, organic cocoa powder, plant-based protein powder with chocolate flavor from Sunwarrior and instant oatflakes. It turns out super dense and creamy and is very filling! If your blender is strong enough I recommend to use frozen bananas as they turn the smoothie to an almost ice-cream like consistency and giving it an extra refreshing touch. Absolutely indulgent!

Clarified Butter is what you get when you separate the milk solids and water, resulting in pure butterfat. There are various benefits of using clarified butter:
1.) Cooking: Clarified butter has a higher smoke point than regular butter which is better for sautéing. I read that in gourmet kitchens it’s common to use clarified butter for all cooking applications.
2.) Storage: Clarified butter has a longer shelf life than fresh butter. Properly wrapped or in a box you can keep clarified butter up to 6 month in your fridge.
3.) Health: The method of clarifying butter removes most of the lactose and casein contained in butter, therefore it’s acceptable for those who have a lactose intolerance or milk allergy. Clarified butter has also been shown to reduce leukotriene secretion and reduce prostaglandin, which helps to fight inflammation.
And here my simple instruction on how you can make homemade clarified butter, simple and easy:
1.) In a water bath melt fresh butter (preferably organic).
2.) Separate the two components by using a fine sieve.
