Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  1. Warm the almond milk in a saucepan over medium-low heat.
  2. Remove the pan from the burner and whisk in the cinnamon, agave, and turmeric. Let cool slightly, and divide evenly among mugs for serving.

Sweet Apple Latkes

Latke (2)

Just in time for the end of Hanukkah, we whipped up this dessert spin on traditional potato latkes!

Ingredients:

  • 3 Granny Smith apples
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 Ener-G eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  •  2 tablespoons canola oil
  1. Peel and shred the apples; press with paper towels to remove the excess moisture.
  2. Combine the shredded apple in a bowl with the vanilla, flour, sugar, Ener-G eggs, and cinnamon.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add half of the batter by heaping tablespoonfuls. Cook for about 5 minutes, until golden on one side, then flip and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
  4. Transfer the latkes to paper towels, and repeat with the remaining oil and remaining batter.
