WHAT: Vegan brownies that will treat your taste buds as well as your conscience
WHERE: SUV2 B.U at 102 Campbell Parade, Bondi Beach (also at 40 Ebley St, Bondi Junction)
This week I decided to try a vegan brownie from SUV2. I’m not vegan but I figure that if I can indulge in something delicious while being kind to the planet and my health, all the better.
The brownie was densely packed, with a moist texture and great flavours that appealed to my sweet tooth. SUV bake a different flavoured brownie each day – this time the stand out flavour was liquorice (due to the inclusion of liquorice root), with hints of cacao and macadamia (other ingredients include cacao butter, macadamias, currants, slippery elm and coconut oil).
Verdict: Well worth the $5 price tag as I was able to save half to enjoy the next day.
nb: You may want to check their Facebook page or phone ahead to find out which flavour they have as brownie flavours change each day.
Did you know?…
According to ‘Your Health‘, the liquorice root contains an active component called Glycyrrhizin, which is 50 times sweeter than sugar and gives licorice its characteristic taste.
The liquorice root is said to have many health benefits including the ability to soothe coughs, reduce mental and emotional stress, protect the liver, and help with digestive disorders and inflammatory conditions.
