A paar tips voor je begint

De I AM ALGAE cubes worden vers van de bron ingevroren. Zorg ervoor dat je de blokjes na gebruik bevroren houdt om het meeste uit het product te halen. Als je een van de cubes als ingrediënt voor smoothies gebruikt, doe dan geen moeite en mix deze bevroren en al mee. Voor elk ander recept raden we je aan om de I AM ALGAE cubes eerst uit de vriezer te halen en deze voor gebruik een paar minuten te laten staan in een kleine kom. De cube zal een beetje gaan smelten, waardoor deze veel beter te gebruiken is in je recept.

  • MERINGUE CHRISTMAS TREES

    Ingredients for 50 pieces

    4 egg whites
    250 grams of fine granulated sugar
    1 lemon
    2 cubes of I AM ALGAE

  • MERINGUE CHRISTMAS TREES

    How to

    (It is very important that no egg yolk gets into the egg white and that all materials are clean and grease-free)

    Preheat the oven to 90 degrees (fan). Cut the lemon in half and rub the bowl and the beaters of the mixer with the lemon. If necessary, remove the leftover lemon with a paper towel.

    Beat the egg whites with a mixer until foamy. Add the sugar little by little and mix well. Mix well for another 7 to 8 minutes until the foam is firm and glossy. Slowly fold the Spirulina into the mixture. If nice peaks form, the meringue foam is good.

    Use a piping bag to make nice dollops of egg white on the baking paper. You can also scoop small heaps on the baking paper with a spoon, so you get more round and convex meringues. The heaps do not expand during baking so you can put them quite close together. Place the baking tray in the oven for 1½ hours.

    Then open the door of the oven ajar and let the meringues cool in the oven. This allows the moisture to escape and the meringues dry better. Store the meringues in a dry place. Or put them in a drum with some uncooked dry rice on the bottom, so they stay longer crispy.

    1 cube of I AM ALGAE
    1½ tbsp tap water
