– JOHO’S FRAPPUCCINO –
First of all, I am going to talk about my relationship with coffee: I remember growing up not understanding how people could possibly be this crazy about a watery and bitter liquid. Adding milk and sugar didn’t look tasty either. With time I got kind of into it, having it every morning, not really enjoying it and I always felt that I was a little too stressed whenever I had coffee. (I have to add that I mostly got really cheap coffee and didn’t prepare it carefully.) This really bothered me and I decided to stay away from it. Today, I enjoy it from time to time, especially when I need lots of extra energy. Thank god a high-carb low-fat vegan diet already gives you plenty of energy. Mostly my body doesn’t need coffee to wake up or make it through the day, which feels just amazing. I wake up, I am grumpy for about 5 minutes and I am ready to go.
So experimenting with Joho’s has changed my relationship with coffee. First of all my boyfriend did show me how to properly prepare coffee. Which makes a big difference! I really love the taste and my heartbeat does not get too rapid as with other coffees. The smell is heartwarming, it feels so comforting and calming. The acidity is very low, it has quite a heavy body and I find it to be really sweet, spicy and somehow flowery. Also, I love how J. Hornig has a direct trade with their coffee suppliers, they have a good relationship and often visit their coffee farms. The roasting is done in Graz. So, overall I am very positively surprised and their high quality has made a big impression.
for 2; vegan, gluten free
– JOHO’s freshly ground coffee
200 ml of almond milk
– 2 servings of plant based vanilla ice cream
– 3 handfuls of ice cubes
– 1 tbsp. of tahini
– 1 tbsp. of molasses
– coconut sugar
Tip: add 1-2 frozen organic bananas & ground vanilla
1. The coconut sugar is for decoration but if you have a sweet tooth add about 2 tablespoons before blending, or one of my secrets to add sweetness & creaminess are frozen bananas and ground vanilla. I didn’t use it for this recipe because the Joho’s coffee was just too damn good and I wanted the taste to be strong, bold and raw.
2. So are you ready? Start by freshly brewing your coffee. I am totally in love with your handsome manual ROK coffee maker.
3. Now take a sip and enjoy the smell.
4. Dissolve molasses in coffee and subsequently freeze coffee for 10 minutes.
5. Prepare your blender. I am using a Vitamix which I bought here. Bring in ice cubes, tahini, coffee, almond milk, 90% of your vanilla ice cream and if desired coconut sugar, frozen bananas and vanilla.
6. Lets blend! You may have to use a tamper or a spoon to help your blender do its job. If you do not have a high performance blender I recommend you to ditch the ice cubes and use only frozen bananas. If you let them defrost for about 10 to 15 minutes blending will be easy and smooth.
7. So, get your glasses ready, pour in this creamy frozen deliciousness and topp with the rest of the ice cream and some coconut sugar. Enjoy.
Coffee, if consumed in small quantities reduces the risk of dying from heart disease and diabetes. A recent study carried out that men who drank 4 to 5 coffee each day cut their risk of developing Parkinson’s disease by nearly half compared to those who consumed little or no coffee each day. Also your immune system will be stronger and your mental performance will be better thanks to a daily coffee intake. There are so many health benefits linked to coffee if consumed in appropriate amounts.
Molasses is a dense byproduct obtained from the processing of sugar cane into table sugar. Its health benefits include relief from stress, acne, headaches, anemia.
