From chocolate shops to restaurants, artisanal flavored caramel is all the rage. Enjoy its panache at home with this delectable sauce. Enhanced with lavender and fleur de sel, it's delicious over cakes, ice cream, and other desserts. Before giving it as a gift, dress up the jar with lavender sprigs to hint at the unexpected floral essence within.
This cinnamon-vanilla rice drink is a frothy Mexican classic. Rice flour offers a nice shortcut, eliminating the customary need to soak grains of rice overnight and grind them. Condensed milk gives the blend sweetness. For a spiked version, stir in a little rum.
Protein-rich tofu gives this drink a thick and creamy texture, and frozen blueberries, cherries, and grapes deliver deep flavor and additional antioxidants. Rooibos tea, grown in South Africa, adds an herbaceous sweetness to this fruit smoothie without the caffeine found in other teas.
