Veg-It by Grant Nash... and Vegan Marshmallows

I've been watching Grant Nash's Veg-It videos since he started posting them and they are very rad. Some of them will tell you what many of you already know, but I love his approach to promoting Veganism and awareness in South Africa. Nash is a well known figure due to his radio show on 5fm, so he seems to draw quite a crowd and he understands how to communicate with people. I just thought it was worth giving him a mention, considering he also found VEGAN MARSHMALLOWS. Vegan s'mores time! Woo!


Subscribe to his videos, he won't spam you. Promise. You can pick up Yotti Mellows Vegan Marshmallows from Flowerspot in Woodmead Johannesburg –  or call their Johannesburg office on 011 440 2015.

Captain Vegan - Multilingual Recipe Site - Chocolate Banana Peanutbutter Smoothies

Captain Vegan is a multilingual Vegan recipe site that seems to have some pretty cool recipes. I especially liked this one which is so similar to a recipe we make for breakfast every morning.

Our recipe is a little simpler - and I prefer it:

CHOCOLATE BANANA SMOOTHIES

Makes 3 to 4 cups of milkshake

Ingredients:

4 or 5 organic bananas depending on size
two cups of cold organic rice milk
one large, heaped spoon of smooth organic peanut butter
Two tablespoons of cocoa powder

Instructions:

Blend all ingredients together.

Our smoothies are a much darker brown, and we drink them as our breakfast. We usually end up with a little more than a glass each, and I generally only get hungry again by around midday! It's way more filling than cereal, and technically healthy albeit heavy on the carbs.

Here is the Arismenu recipe that Captain Vegan refers to:

Ingredients:

3 bananas, sliced and frozen
2 tbsp chocolate peanut butter
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
whipped coconut cream and sprinkles for serving, optional

Instructions:

Combine bananas, peanut butter, chocolate chips, vanilla and 1/2 cup of your almond milk in a high-quality blender. Blend until smooth (you will likely need to stop and stir--it will be very thick). Slowly, add more milk until milkshake has reached your desired consistency. Serve immediately. Top with whipped cream/whipped coconut cream and sprinkles if desired.
