Yeah, now she’s gone crazy. But I really had beer for dessert. I even had it for breakfast. And was still driving my car afterwards.
No, don’t worry, everything is fine with me.
You’ll still be sober after ten dessert beers!
They are tasty and healthy. Oh, I know there will be many men and women telling me that “real” beer IS very healthy, too. However… my beer doesn’t taste like beer at all. Okay, I admit it: It’s a fake. It’s a dessert that looks like beer. Like real beer.
And I love it. I don’t like “real” beer though. YES, I am living in Germany and I don’t like beer. It’s possible.
But I do like this dessert.
And so does the little Bavarian. (Honestly, I never thought I’d have use for him!)
German Dessert Beer
- 500ml / 2 cups unfiltered apple juice (cider)
- dash of cinnamon
- 1 tsp agar agar powder
- soyatoo or any other kind of vegan cream (I used natumi)
Pour the apple juice in a pot and add the agar agar and the cinnamon, using a whisk. Boil the juice for about 2 min, stirring constantly. Pour into beer glasses and let it cool down until firm.
Whip cream and put it on top of your “beer”, it well be the “head”.
It’s a perfect dessert for any Oktoberfest party. Or just for fun. At first sight, my friends really thought I was having beer!
Well, they should know me better… I’ve just been playing with my food.
Enjoy the dessert beer with a pretzel! (Aren’t those lego pretzels cute? I like it…)
hahahahahha! You folled me all the way! that’s a quite original idea to serve this tasty dessert! :)
Totally cute! The food and the legos :)

Mmmmmmm…. Beeeeer. I SO loved the beer experience when we visited Germany. We had it all day long, because it was cheaper than soda pop, and easier to find than water! That trip turned me into a beer snob.
Where did you get the purple torso on your blond minifigure? I don’t think I’ve ever seen that design.
ooh I love apple juice, and it looks just like a real pint of beer.
Love the use of the bavarian too, only got a few of series 8 at the moment

Love the legos, checking out your site for the first time, very cool!
This is fantastic! So creative and fun. I love real beer but I can tell I’d definitely also love dessert beer :)
You’re not alone! I was born and raised in Bavaria, but I’ve never been a beer fan either. I’ve tried, but it’s just too bitter for me. Your version looks much tastier to me!

Now you’re talking my language! I’ve always said that the best kind of beer is one that doesn’t taste like beer. I’m not a fan of drinking most alcohol straight, so I love your tromp l’oeil! Looks very convincing. ;)
You’re hysterical! Does the cider get firm, like gelatin? I’ve never used agar-agar, so I’m not too familiar with it, but these look like a lot of fun.
And as usual, your pics look awesome.
I just gave you an AWARd! yeah!! http://sophiesfoodiefiles.wordpress.com/2012/10/04/vegan-breakfast-smoothy-some-awards/
Hahahahah that’s so creative!
Du hattest gefragt, ob deine Mail bei mir angekommen ist und ich habe gleich im Postfach nachgesehen, aber da ist nichts…Alle Mails von vor dem Urlaub habe ich schon lange beantwortet! :/ Erinnerst du dich noch daran, was du geschrieben hattest? Wenn ja, kannst du mir gerne erneut schreiben, ich würde mich freuen! :)
Liebe Grüße, Anna

Haha, your little lego people have me laughing :) I’m German, but don’t drink beer, don’t polka, and don’t like Schitz un Knep (sp?)
