Two more winners

February 8, 2011

First up, avocado-lime-coconut

This one teeters on the line between sweet and savory. Perfectly balanced sweet, sour, and a touch salty.

Next, mesquite bean


Don’t worry, it doesn’t taste a bit like smoke! Made from the syrup of mesquite beans, it tastes like caramel or dulce de leche.

Not only that, it contains no added sugar. The pericarp of the mesquite bean is very sweet. But it derives its sweetness primarily from the fructose it contains, which has a low glycemic index.

Though it tastes delicious, I’m not sure it will be in the regular rotation. It is a huge process to make mesquite syrup. So this will more likely be a “special edition” type of deal.

    Mmmm! The Mesquite Bean one sounds amazing! What are the stats … Dairy free? Organic?

      Hi, thanks! Not dairy-free. It’s just cream and mesquite syrup. I could not find an organic version of the cream I used. :c ( But I made the syrup from pods that I foraged locally, and had milled. So it’s about as pure as it gets.
