VEGAN Rose flavoured biscuits

Sad to say that these aren’t gluten-free, I wish they were. I mean, I originally used gluten-free flour on my first attempt at making these, but I messed it up so badly and ended up wasting the entire packet of flour. Such a me thing to do. I couldn’t actually be bothered to go out in this freezing cold weather to buy more, so plain flour it was…

Makes 9 biscuits

1/2 cup of vegan butter

1 1/2 cups of plain flour

GALAXY, DETOX Smoothie bowl

I recently purchased some of these amazing powders from Mistyday online. Check the website out! They are so vibrant in colour, made from different flowers and herbs, packed with nutrients and have their individual benefits. They are tinyyyyy but worth it. If you are into making your smoothies, juices and even desserts really colourful like I am, then these are perfect for you! You can really get creative with them.

Halloween is coming soon and although I dont really agree with the way it has been portrayed to be quite evil and scary, I do always feel that theres a mysterious atmosphere and a certain darkness around the end of October. This smoothie bowl was kind of inspired by that feeling…

Ingredients

Half a cup of soaked cashew nuts

Hand full of pineapple

4 dates

3 tablespoons of the Detox Brew powder

Add almond milk if it is too thick

Blend it all
