It’s time to welcome back our Guest Blogger, Maddy Bellcroft. This week Maddy has been busy checking out some of the new vegan products on the shelves at Fresh Choice Nelson.
My mind always boggles at the constant arrival of new vegan products. Now is a great time to be a vege, vegan, or simply to enjoy new foods. This month my basket was kindly filled with a couple more products to sample and report back on. All of these are available now at Fresh Choice Nelson.
New Vegan Products & More Deliciousness @ Fresh Choice Nelson:
Ceres Organic Chickpea Crisps Saracha Thai Chilli
I opened these up thinking I would just have one or two and soon discovered that I’d eaten the whole packet! These are more of a cracker than a chip, and are delicious, especially when dunked in freshly made guacamole.
Chantal Organic Hemp Hearts and Hemp Protein
Have you heard about hemp lately? It’s an excellent protein source and full of goodness. Hemp seeds are delicious on their own or sprinkle them on salads, smoothies and toast. I mixed the protein powder into smoothies, muffins and bread.
Ceres Organic Hemp Crunchy Peanut Butter and Cacao Peanut Butter
The hemp and cacao peanut butter was amazing. We spread this new vegan product on sliced apple and toast. We dolloped on to banana ice cream and spooned it into our mouths. And then, sadly it was gone. We are still working on the crunchy one, which is also tasty, but not quite as addictive as the chocolate flavoured butter.
Bean Supreme Mexican and Laska Pies
Nice easy heat and eat dinner option with good ingredients. This new vegan product is plant-based and palm oil-free. My favourite was the Laska version. Filled with tasty potato, pumpkin, coconut and zingy tamarind flavours.
Living Drinks Probiotic Kefir Soda – Raspberry Hibiscus and Mandarin Yuzu
A delicious new sparkling Kefir drink. These reminded me of soda flavours from my childhood. Very nice on a hot day, poured over ice.
Raglan Coconut Yoghurt – Blueberry Flavour
The team at Raglan Coconut Yoghurt have done it again, this time with the sweet and subtle flavour of blueberry. I added this into my morning smoothie along with the hemp protein; it kept me going for hours!
