Serves 12 Muffins

Blueberry muffins are one of life’s little pleasures.  And if you make big muffins, they are big pleasures.  Either way, when I found out that I have the dreaded wheat/gluten allergy, I was sad to think about a life with no muffins.  Alas, here is a recipe that pretty much solves the problem.  These suckers are pretty damn good and I can safely say that the recipe is easy as can be!

In The Netherlands, the Dutch celebrate St. Nichols Day, which is their equivalent of Christmas.  There are many awesome Dutch recipes out there, but unfortunately most of them involve some kind of meat or dairy.  However, these tasty little apple fritters are totally vegan and every bite is delicious.

Make sure to eat immediately after cooking.  They don’t make very nice left overs!

Top Ten Vegan Smoothie Recipes

February 28, 2015

Now that the summer heat has started to kick in there is nothing better to battle the temperature than an ice cold vegan smoothie.  To be honest making a vegan smoothie is not a difficult task. Simply pick your favourite fruits, try and have something like an apple or a banana to thicken it, then place it in a blender or preferably a smoothie maker and you are done.

For my top ten vegan smoothie recipes I will be bringing you the best vegan smoothie recipes that I have found, from the fruity to the greenest of the green!

For each of these fruit recipes all you have to do is stick the ingredients in the blender, and let it rip!

When you are making vegetable smoothies you should always add the fruits first, then the watery greens, and then the vegetables for the perfect vegan smoothie!

You can also add things like raw sugar, ice, or other vegetables/fruits to get the exact vegan smoothie recipe you are looking for!

My only advice for any vegan smoothie recipe is to make sure that for every sour ingredient such as Kale, you include a sweetener to balance it out!
