Coconut and banana pudding – dairy-freeΒ 

To be honest when I read the recipe and it said you can make great pudding using millet, I was sceptical…. untill I tried it! 

It is soooo tasty πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ™‚ 


Just cook the millet, blend it with bananas and voile!

  • vanilla bean
  • 2 tbsp xylitol 

Rinse millet 3 times with hot water. Cook until soft with cup of coconut milk and 1/2 cup of water.

Add bananas, vanilla bean and rest of the coconut milk to the cooked millet and blend it. It takes a while till It’s really smooth.

Vegan pancakes – from Indonesia with love

I loved the Indonesian dessert – dadar gulung. It is delicious crepe with amazing filling – the one I ate was with caramelized coconut. It has green colour form pandan leaves – I think it deosen’t affect the taste. I took a picture of it in a really nice restanurant in Canggu, Bali. The place is called Dandellion – worth visiting.

I didn’t have pandan powder so decided to do some pancakes with Indonesian flavour. I made them with coconut milk and CAUTION! banana flour which I bout in supermarket in Ubud.

The recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of flour (mixed banana and white
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ca. 1,5 cup coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoon olive oli

Mix all the ingredients, if the batter it too thick – add more coconut milk or water. Fry till the pancakes are golden both sides. Serve with your favourite fruits, maple syrup or like me with desiccated coconut.

Notes

Before flipping make sure they’re fried enough.
