Review: Fructose Friendly, Vegan Coconut Ice Cream By Mailorder

Fructose Friendly, Vegan Coconut Ice Cream By Mailorder // once I’m taking the back seat. Instead of letting my own voice do the talking, I asked my lovely sister Derya to write the very first guest post on Fructopia. Usually busy studying and shooting YouTube videos, Derya loves to spend most of her leisure time in the kitchen developing sneaky little sugar free treats. Naturally she was my first choice to review a new fructose friendly and refreshing treat for you: Coconut ice cream! Unfortunately this product is only available in Germany for now. We didn’t want to deprive you of these gorgeous images though. That’s why I’m sharing my translated version of her write-up with you here. Enjoy!

My Favourite Late Summer Breakfast: Toasted Muesli With Ice-Cold Raspberry-Oat-Milk

My Favourite Late Summer Breakfast: Toasted Muesli With Ice-Cold Raspberry-Oat-Milk //
During the past two years I slowly completed my transformation from typical German “Butterbrot” or ‘sandwich-for-breakfast-girl’ to ‘full-blooded-oatmeal-lover’. You should know that oatmeal or porridge, were never a big thing in Germany while I was growing up. Only slowly are they gaining some attention, ever since we dropped the German “Haferschleim” or ‘oat slime’ moniker and started switching to the more appealing English ‘oatmeal’. Imagine somebody offering you oat slime! Gross!

Anyways, time’s are a changin’ and I’ve become a real sucker for the oats. A piping hot bowl of oatmeal for breakfast keeps me satisfied for hours and I love it’s soothing effect on my tummy. My favourite fructose friendly version even made it into my cookbook: Creamy oatmeal with raspberries, cardamom, black sesame and a dollop of ghee! Incredible!

But seeing as steaming superfood compositions don’t go well with the currently rising temperatures here in Turkey, I had to think of something else. Instead of turning my favourite breakfast into a mushy overnight version, I wanted to create something with a nice crunch. This is how silky oats with raspberry and wintery spices, evolved into sugar free toasted muesli, bathing in ice-cold raspberry-oat-milk. I wouldn’t even go as far as calling this an actual recipe because this summer breakfast is so easily assembled! But hey, enjoy! …
