The Cinnamon Snail vegan food truck NYC

I do love street food. Period. I love healthy street vendors even more, and my all time favorite is "The Cinnamon Snail" vegan food truck NYC.

I love vegan donuts

I have been crazy for vegan donuts since the North American culture got into my life and I have to thank Cinnamon Snail for making the most delicious yet ' good for you '  donuts, brownies, cookies, bars and other treats. I'm sure it would catch your eye if you're wandering the streets of NYC and spot the cinnamon colored truck...

I have good news for you if you're not a crazy "Sweet Tooth" like myself, they also have these incredible delicious gourmet sandwiches made with seitan and more cause there is a plus : they serve vegan and organic food only.

Favorite treats at Cinnamon Snail

For a non typical day in my routine, I had the "special of the day" featuring maple hickory bbq seitan with smoked chili coconut bacon, marinated kale and roasted garlic aioli on a grilled baguette. It was way to heavy for my morning, but it was worth the experience cause I've never had a tastier vegan sandwich before.  Champs!

People working at the truck are super nice and helpful!

I also need to recommend the cinnamon roll, and my number 1 donut -the vanilla bourbon creme brulée : It is mindblowing!

You can find all the info you need on their instagram @cinnamonsnail , but I can bring you good news: they cater and have pickup locations in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Hoboken.

Have you spotted a green one and guessing what flavor is? It's Basil coconut!

When my favorite friends Dirk and Lonneke were about to leave NYC for a while, Fabio and I run earlier that day to grab an assortment of our favorite bites, and paid a visit to share some goodness and free the stress of traveling abroad for a while... I was lucky to bring some leftovers back home!

Cashew pudding recipe

It's a true fact that after only one week eating less sugary foods, our body does already respond to it not craving for sugar. But in case you are a big sweet tooth, there is a lot of desserts and sweet treats you could satisfy your craving with. I used to drink a delicious and very nutritious cashew milk as a kind of "dessert" before going to sleep. When making this recipe, I found out a beautiful new version where I can turn the milk into a pudding only by adding less water to it!

So here it goes the cashew pudding recipe :

  3. Next day: use the frozen cashews, put them into a good blender together with all the ingredients listed adding a cup of water ( about 200 ml).
  4. Blend it well until you get to a creamy texture.

Notes
In case you wanna try the milk version to drink, add 800 ml of water. Shake well before drinking, cause I don't usually drain my milk. It can be stored 4 days in the fridge!!

Enjoy!!
