Espresso-licious

26 08 2010

SO.. I live a healthy walk from Chinatown East (Gerrard and Broadview) and when i am feeling like a jaunt, i take the College streetcar home and pop into a chinatown grocery store. Chinatown is NOT for the faint of heart, so i need to be in the right frame of mind to look at black 100 year old eggs etc.

As I was scanning the shelves I noticed this product and laughed out loud at the name.

“NO NO, not 3:20 or 3:30 BUT 3:15 !” Love it !

In my attempts to conquer the final frontier of WLS, a.k.a. baking stuff that actually tastes good, I used this recipe from Eggface and my purchase from Chinatown east.

Shelly’s Espresso Protein Souffle

1/4 cup Chopped Nuts (I used a combo of Pecans & Walnuts)
2 eggs
1 Banana
1 cup Vanilla Soy Milk
1/4 cup Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Caramel)
3 Tablespoons Multigrain Pancake Mix, dry (I use this)
2 scoops Click Espresso Protein ** i subbed in one pkg of instant espresso from the asian grocer and 2 scoops of chocolate whey protein powder.. you could use a scoop of instant coffee OR a VIVA stick from Starbucks
1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
dash Nutmeg

Sprinkle nuts into bottom of each ramekin. Mix all remaining ingredients in a blender till smooth. Pour mixture into ramekins or custard cups. Here’s what I use. If you don’t have a groovy set up like this. Just place the ramekins in a large roasting pan. Place pan on oven rack and pour enough very hot water to come halfway up sides of ramekins. Bake at 350 for 50 minutes or until set, knife inserted comes out clean.

out of the oven 45 minutes later

and ready for snack 15 minutes after that.. i topped mine with whipped cream and a chai spiced almond

Coconut Custard a.k.a deliciousness « Antics of a Museum Girl

[…] our diet and still watch our net carb intake. This feels like dessert to us, and along with the espresso custard and pumpkin bake, these are complete comfort foods without any eaters regret. God knows at this time […]
