Today's Experiments

Today for my parents 30th Wedding anniversary I decided to do something I've been pushing for too long. I made a vegan chocolate cheesecake and also an unplanned mousse happened. Recipes will be up soon, but here's a preview...

Crunchy Passion Fruit Ice Cream

I love ice cream and I tried to mix that with my new found intrigue for Passion Fruit.

You need:
2 cans coconut Milk or Milk squeezed out of 4 coconuts
6 passion fruits
3 spoons Jaggery or any sweetener
Some cardamom
A handful of Roasted Almonds

Take out the pulp of the passion fruits and put it through a sieve. Squeeze out the pulp and save the seeds Mix this pulp with the coconut milk and jaggery in a blender. Add the cardamom and almonds. Put it in your ice cream maker or just freeze it in a box. Roast the seeds till the remaining pulu had dried off of them and they become a bit crunchy. Once the ice cream is ready put the seeds on top and serve.

You could also add some roasted almonds into the ice cream before freezing.

Coconut Milk Payasam or Kheer

An amazing milk-free dessert that is oil free, cruelty free and so easy to make !

Payasam / Kheer is a milky-special occasion dessert that generally puts you to sleep after an Indian meal! Try it with plant based milks (after a vegetarian/vegan meal of course) and compare !

You need:
1 coconut - milk removed
1/2 cup jaggery or less depending on your sweet threshold
1 cup cooked rice or semiya(vermicelli) or raagi noodles
Dry Roasted Cashew/ Almonds
Raisins
Cardamom Powder

Boil the coconut milk and jaggery together. Add it to the cooked rice or noodles and add in the nuts and cardamom.
