Surprisingly, we do not need sugar or artificial sweeteners for the Berry FruLance soft drink. Indeed, all we need are a few dates to sweeten our summer healthily.
Certainly you do remember the alkaline Spicy FruLance soft drink, right? Because now we have its berrilcious counterpart.
And just as I have for Spicy FruLance, I used the mineral water Staatl. Fachingen MEDIUM again for the berry drink.
The extravagant Berry FruLance for connoisseurs
She’s wrinkly, not exactly beauty-crafted and in everyone’s conversations. But if we first break through its hard core, fine and sweet character traits come to light. The tonka bean is particularly popular in haute cuisine and is also used as a cheap vanilla substitute. The taste is quite unique and special and we should use it sparingly. Not only because everything else will taste like Tonka, but because it taste also contains coumarin and too much coumarin is unhealthy. For those who use it sparingly in the kitchen, the Tonka bean is a real game changer.
The taste of the tonka bean can be quite unusual in the beginning. Considering this, if you are skeptical, you can simply replace it with vanilla. In principle, I have made the experience that my friends, who don’t like coriander, didn’t directly become friends with the tonka bean either.
Raspberry is quite charming
Whether black, violet or gold – there are many varieties of raspberries. However, the best known and most popular, is the red-pink one. Just after the strawberry, the raspberry is one of the Germans’ favourite berries. Indeed, absolutely understandable: The velvety power balls taste heavenly, contain few calories, but plenty of valuable vitamins and secondary plant substances.
Firstly, raspberries are a charming source of fiber and vitamin C. Secondly, it also contains other healthy vitamins as well as minerals and only a few percentage of fructose.
