Mung Bean ‘Eggs’ or Vegan Cheese Sauce

This is part 2 of the previous blog post you can see here  JustEgg-vs-mung-bean-egg-using-vegan.html When I wrote the last  post I didn’t have black salt. I received my order from Amazon a few days ago. Black salt makes things taste like eggs and it also great for bloating, and I personally like the taste.  This time I put the soaked mung beans, seasonings a little oil and some water in the magic bullet. I think I put too much water. Last time I whipped the mixture with a fork before cooking it in the pan. This time I poured from the blender into the pan.  While it was cooking I thought this method would make a good vegan cheeze sauce. Just change the seasonings and thin it out with plant milk add vegan cheese. I only had baby bell cheese and coconut almond milk which wasn’t the best for a cheese sauce so i didn’t add much just enough to see if it would work. I will likely try to make a mung bean cheeze sauce in the future.  I had already added seasoning to make the mixture taste like

I Tried Starbucks Vegan Sugar Cookie Latte with Coconut, Almond, and Oat milk


This is an update to the post below. I finally tried the sugar cookie latte with almond milk. This is my favourite out of all three that I have tried. I had requested 1 pump of syrup the grande usually comes with 4. It was missing some sweetness but that was my fault I recommend having 3 or 4 pumps of syrup if you try this. The drink was still really good. This is going to be my favourite Starbucks drink while it lasts. 
 


The sugar cookie latte from Starbucks is their first vegan holiday drink. In Canada it comes with Oat Milk and in the US it comes with almond milk in Canada. I don’t like oat milk so I substituted coconut milk. 

This drink was good it taste like a perfectly sweetened latte. It has sprinkles on it other than that it didn’t remind me of a cookie at all. I liked it though it had a perfect sweetness to coffee ratio. Since most people will not order their drink with coconut milk I will try it with other plant milk.


I tried the sugar cookie latte the way it comes in Canada with oat milk. I like this better than the one with coconut milk. The consistency of the oat milk is very similar to dairy milk. I did not find this drink sweet I could have used a pump more of syrup usually I ask for less. I ordered a short size which only has 2 pumps of syrup I usually get tall size which has three. If you are looking for a good vegan holiday drink that reminds you of a dairy latte this is the one. 

I plan to try this drink with almond milk and will update when I do. Happy National Espresso day let me know on Instagram @livingvancouverloca what you thought of this drink.
