Europeans love their fresh baked bread in the mornings. In Denmark, where my family is from, there’s practically a Bakery on every corner. So, in the wee early hours of the morning you can go pick up some fresh bread or pastries. But if you don’t have a bakery around the corner – fear not!  On this Sunday (or any day) morning you can have some homemade rolls in about 30 minutes.

So there you have it – fresh homemade delicious healthy rolls in about 30 minutes! Please enjoy with some butter and perhaps some homemade jam, and a nice cup of coffee or tea (or several).

Happy Sunday Morning!

P.S. If you have a small household – please freeze half the batch, as these taste best the first couple of days (no nasty preservatives in these goodies).

Enjoy! Let me know what you think, and let me know your versions!

Vegan “Ice Cream” – Banana & Pineapple

Pin on PinterestShare on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Email this to someoneShare on Tumblr

Here’s a superfast, super easy, and super healthy recipe for some Vegan “Ice Cream”. The creaminess is all thanks to the banana. Of course, you could add Almond Milk or even Coconut Milk for a Pina Colada touch. Either way – this is a creamy, sweet and refreshing treat.

Vegan “Ice Cream” – Banana & Pineapple

What you need (for 1 big serving or 2 small servings):

  • 1 cup of Frozen Pineapple
  • 1 Banana
  • 1/4 cup (or less if your blender/food processer can handle it) of Water or Almond Milk/Coconut Milk (etc.) – The less liquid, the creamier consistency!

What to do:

  1. Put ingredients in blender/bullet/food processer – and blend until smooth.

Serve and enjoy! Guilt free weekend treat! With lots of Vitamins and such things : )

This is one of those method recipes – i.e. you could switch the fruit around. I would leave the banana for creaminess, but switch the pineapple to whatever frozen fruit you prefer.

Happy Weekend!

Annika
