Vegan Lotus cherry pie
Please don’t be mad that I’m writing another Lotus biscoff recipe. I just had no idea that a vegan Lotus cherry pie could be such a lovely dessert. There’s something magical about the combination of sweet cherries and the irresistible caramel flavor of Lotus Biscoff cookies. And when these two incredible flavors come together in a cherry pie with a paper thin, baklava-like crusts, it creates a dessert experience that will leave you in awe.
I did not come up with this lovely recipe. I have seen it on insta reels some time ago. I don’t know if this is the same way that the creator in question has made it, so my version may be modified. Unfortunately I have lost the original post while scrolling.
But in any case, it is so simple that I have memorized it instantly. And you only need a few ingredients for this vegan Lotus cherry pie. I highly recommend this one, especially because of it’s simplicity and the amount of time you need to make it. The next time you want to elevate your dessert game, give this heavenly delight a try and indulge in a truly extraordinary dessert experience.
Some health benefits
Normally I avoid writing this part of the post when it comes to desserts. However, I realized I never did health benefits of cherries, so this may be a good opportunity to write about those.
Cherries are not just delightful to the taste buds, but also a treasure trove of health benefits. Rich in antioxidants like anthocyanins and quercetin, they combat oxidative stress and reduce the risk of chronic diseases. Chronic inflammation can lead to various health issues. Cherries possess anti-inflammatory properties that can ease discomfort. Regular consumption might help manage conditions like arthritis and gout.
Cherries positively impact heart health due to their high potassium and fiber content. Potassium regulates blood pressure, and fiber lowers cholesterol levels, making cherries heart-friendly.
They contain melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep cycles. Incorporating them into your diet or consuming cherry juice may naturally improve sleep quality and duration, aiding individuals with sleep troubles.
For weight management, cherries are low in calories and rich in fiber, helping control appetite and cravings.
Dietary fiber in cherries supports healthy digestion by preventing constipation and promoting regular bowel movements. The antioxidants may also contribute to gut health by reducing inflammation. Cherries offer a delicious way to enhance overall well-being. Their antioxidant content, potential for aiding sleep, and ability to alleviate pain showcase the benefits of natural foods. Enjoy them fresh, frozen, or as juice to savor both taste and health advantages.
When it comes to some advice for this lovely vegan Lotus cherry pie, there is only one. Don’t overdo it with the crust layers. That is pretty much it.
Vegan Lotus cherry pie
55 g of Lotus Bischoff spread
90 g of Lotus cookies
2 tbsp sounds of soy milk
- Defrost the cherries. Break apart the Lotus biscoff cookies and put them in a blender. Blend until there are no big chunks left behind.
- In a medium sized bowl mix together the Lotus biscoff spread and the soy milk until well combined. Add the ground Lotus cookies to the bowl and mix everything together. You should end up with a thick mixture. Set aside.
- On a clean flat surface place 2 sheets of the crust. In one half of the crust (left one for example), spread the Lotus biscoff filling that you just made. Place one sheet of crust over that gently. Remove the excess water from the cherries. On the left half of the crust, place the cherries (leave some space between them).
- Now it’s time to roll up the vegan Lotus cherry pie. Fold the edges inward and then roll from left to right until you have rolled it in a tube shape. Place it in a baking dish lined with parchment paper. Brush the pie with olive oil.
- Heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Bake the pie for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until it becomes golden, brownish on the surface. Take it out of the oven and let it cool down. Cut the vegan Lotus cherry pie into several pieces, dust them with powdered sugar and serve.
