To snack on while watching the Olympics


Are you going crazy from all our Rio updates? Yes? Then you should probably read this fun post Elke wrote about Justin Bieber’s ding dong. But if not, I’ve got some fun Brazilian snacks for you. Wake up with an açai bowl (the açai berry comes from Brazil), invite your friends, wear the color of the country you’re supporting, turn the TV on and pour a (n alcoholic) beverage into your glass. Combine this with some South American treats and you’ll be devoured into that Olympian mode.


Açai bowl

This tastes so good, it’s colorful and rich with super foods for breakfast. It won’t surprise me if the olympians wake up in Brazil with this for breakfast. Head on over here for a recipe.


Pão de queijo

What is it?

A small sandwich with runny melted cheese on the inside.


What do you need?

500 grams tapioca flour
200 grams rasped cheese
2 eggs

half a coffee cup of salad oil

2 coffee cups of milk
a pinch of salt


How to make it?

Preheat your oven to 190 degrees. Put the tapioca flour into a bowl. Add two cups of milk and half the cup of salad oil in a pan and add the pinch of salt. Take the pan with the milk and oil off the fire once it starts cooling, and then add the eggs and then the tapioca flour. Mix all of it until it becomes a dough like substance and add the cheese when it’s still warm. Kneed it together and turn them into small balls. Bake these for about 14 minutes until they’ve got a gold like color.

How do you make it?

Melt the butter in a steel pan. Then add all the ingredients into it. Mix it until the mixture starts to thicken and then take it out of the pan and let it cool off. Once it’s cooled off a bit, turn it into small balls with a spoon. Then add all these balls into a bowl, top it off with some rasped coconut, and it’s good to be served.
