PLUS Chocolate kruidnoten puur[/cmsms_heading][cmsms_text animation_delay=”0″]

Kruidnoten (“spicy nuts”), often mistakenly referred to as pepernoten (“pepper nuts”) are similar to gingerbread cookies in taste, they’re just a lot smaller.

We all love them, especially when covered in chocolate. Other (non-chocolaty) options include Bolletje kruidnoten, Bolletje bakkers kruidnoten, PLUS kruidnoten, AH kruidnoten en Jumbo bakkers kruidnoten.

AH marzipan pigs[/cmsms_heading][cmsms_text animation_delay=”0″]Okay, so vegans obviously don’t eat animals, but we will make an exception for these cute things. Get these at your local Albert Heijn supermarket.[/cmsms_text][cmsms_divider width=”long” height=”1″ position=”center” margin_top=”50″ margin_bottom=”50″ animation_delay=”0″][cmsms_image align=”right” animation_delay=”0″]3470|https://www.greenofficevu.nl/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/Afbeelding3-200×200.png|thumbnail[/cmsms_image][cmsms_heading type=”h5″ font_weight=”normal” font_style=”normal” text_align=”left” margin_top=”0″ margin_bottom=”20″ animation_delay=”0″]3. Schluckwerder marzipan potatoes[/cmsms_heading][cmsms_text animation_delay=”0″]We like our marzipan in all shapes and forms, and these ‘potatoes’ are no exception. Eat them plain or use as a basis to make your own marzipan figures.[/cmsms_text][cmsms_divider width=”long” height=”1″ position=”center” margin_top=”50″ margin_bottom=”50″ animation_delay=”0″][cmsms_image align=”left” animation_delay=”0″]3471|https://www.greenofficevu.nl/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/Afbeelding4-200×200.png|thumbnail[/cmsms_image][cmsms_heading type=”h5″ font_weight=”normal” font_style=”normal” text_align=”left” margin_top=”0″ margin_bottom=”20″ animation_delay=”0″]4. Wonka Sinas Snippers[/cmsms_heading][cmsms_text animation_delay=”0″]This fruity treat covered with chocolate is a great alternative if you don’t like marzipan.

Tony’s Chocolonely Letter dark with or without pepernoot[/cmsms_heading][cmsms_text animation_delay=”0″]We probably don’t have to explain to you that there are in fact dark chocolate letters. But this is a special one that has pepernoten (“pepper nuts”) in it. Although you can also choose a ‘boring’ dark chocolate one.

Schleckwerder marzipan stick[/cmsms_heading][cmsms_text animation_delay=”0″]Sure, we haven’t had enough marzipan and chocolate, so let’s take a couple of bites out of this marzipan stick.[/cmsms_text][cmsms_divider width=”long” height=”1″ position=”center” margin_top=”50″ margin_bottom=”50″ animation_delay=”0″][cmsms_image align=”left” animation_delay=”0″]3475|https://www.greenofficevu.nl/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/Afbeelding8-200×200.png|thumbnail[/cmsms_image][cmsms_heading type=”h5″ font_weight=”normal” font_style=”normal” text_align=”left” margin_top=”0″ margin_bottom=”20″ animation_delay=”0″]8.

Speculaas smoothie[/cmsms_heading][cmsms_text animation_delay=”0″]And while you’re at it, make this delicious Sinterklaas inspired smoothie. Take out your blender and put in one banana, 50 grams of vegan speculaas, 30 grams of rolled oats, 250 ml (or one cup) of almond milk and a good pinch of cinnamon. Blitz until smooth. For extra creaminess, freeze your bananas before using them in your daily smoothie. Take the bananas out of the freezer about half an hour before using them, as to not ruin your blender.[/cmsms_text][/cmsms_column][/cmsms_row][cmsms_row data_padding_bottom=”50″ data_padding_top=”0″ data_bg_parallax_ratio=”0.5″ data_bg_size=”cover” data_bg_attachment=”scroll” data_bg_repeat=”no-repeat” data_bg_position=”top center” data_color=”default” data_padding_right=”3″ data_padding_left=”3″ data_width=”boxed”][cmsms_column data_width=”1/1″][cmsms_divider width=”long” height=”1″ position=”center” margin_top=”50″ margin_bottom=”50″ animation_delay=”0″][cmsms_image align=”center” animation_delay=”0″]3351|https://www.greenofficevu.nl/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/vivalasvegaslogo-300×114.png|medium[/cmsms_image][cmsms_heading type=”h5″ font_weight=”normal” font_style=”normal” text_align=”left” margin_top=”0″ margin_bottom=”20″ animation_delay=”0″] [/cmsms_heading][cmsms_text animation_delay=”0″]

This festive shopping list was brought to you by the people from Viva Las Vega’s, a non-profit organisation who aim for a plant-based future. 

  • Do you want to stop the misery taking place in the livestock industry?
  • Do you want to create a kind and more sustainable world?
  • Do you think that together we can make a difference?


=> If you answer YES on at least one of these questions, you want the same as we do!

Viva las Vega’s is a non-profit organisation that focuses on the root cause for animal suffering and environmental pollution: the massive breeding of animals for human consumption. By reducing the demand for animal products and by encouraging companies to increase the availability of plant-based foods, we can easily avoid thousands of animals ever ending up in the meat industry.

In cooperation with the Green Office of the Free University of Amsterdam, we will keep you posted on interesting veggie news and provide you with tasty recipes. Want to know more? Check out our website www.viva-las-vegas.nl or like our Facebook page.
