Starbucks hot apple crisp macchiato

Image
In a previous post I reviewed the iced apple crisp. Today is a strange weather day it’s sunny and raining at the same time. Cold from the wind and hot from the sun at the same time. It seemed to be a perfect day to try a fall drink released in summer.  I also had stars that were going to expire soon. I would normally order a tall since I was using the stars I got a grande. The only customization I did was request coconut milk. I know it’s not the best for this kind of drink it’s the one I like the most. Otherwise I wanted to try it the way it came.  Previously I had gone shopping with my mom and then decided to walk home. I had a heavy bag of flour to carry on the 1.5 km home. I was hoping that I could sit outside at Starbucks. All the outside tables were taken and inside was efficient with them having a person opening and closing the door and telling you to go pick up your mobile order if it’s there. I’m not comfortable sitting inside anyways but it was definitely an atmosphere of gra

October 30, 2017 Healthy Flourless Vegan Fudge Brownies, Facebook recipe #3

The link to the original recipe no longer works; however it is from Big Man's World healthy flourless Fudge Brownies. The link for the original video is on livingvancouverloca's facebook page which can be found here https://www.facebook.com/livingvancouverloca/.

I could only watch the video and not find the original recipe so this is not an exact recipe; however it turned out okay.


There are only 5 ingredients and my version is vegan since I used vegan chocolate chips

 sweet potato, cocoa powder, almond butter for the brownies. My friend gave me the giant potato and I steamed it but not long enough.
 The original recipe says to heat the nut butter but I don't have a microwave so I decided that I could mash the potato and mix the butter in the blender of my magic bullet. It didn't work very well and I had to add water to mix it a little.
 In the end I came out with a decent looking batter. The original recipe calls for cooking at 350 for 25 minutes. I cooked in the toaster oven with a bigger sweet potato so I cooked for 40 minutes at 350.
 Then for the icing melt chocolate chips and coconut milk. I used my steamer pot to melt it but I originally put too much milk in.
 Too much milk means more chocolate
 now they are frosted
 I have this left over chocolate if I freeze it will turn to ice cream?
Final result I am not a fan. They are not sweet enough and have a bit of a dry texture. I may try this again using pumpkin or banana instead of sweet potato.

What I am a fan of is the frozen chocolate it tastes great and the texture is like that of a cheaper vegan ice cream. I think if I mix a frozen banana in it next time I will get a really great chocolate soft serve.
