Lemon Carrot Polenta Zeppole + Quick Lemon Glaze + Candied Lemon Carrots + Iced Italian Lemon Mochas

Why did the baker stop making doughnuts?
 He got fed up with the HOLE business. Coffee and doughnuts for the entire family! Why not?

Kids are kids for such a short amount of time - and sometimes it’s fun to play grown-up (with pinkies up, of course) like with these kid-friendly iced mochas and sophisticated Italian doughnuts.

Did you know that there are versions of a doughnut in almost every world cuisine – think French beignets, Chinese Tiao, Mexican churros, American fritters, Dutch  Æbleskivers, African Mandazi and European crullers. Whatever you call it, great doughnuts are slightly crisp on the outside and chewy-soft in the middle.

Of course we could not make these without a Sticky Fingers Cooking HEALTHY twist – Polenta, lemon and carrots. Did you know that 1 cup of chopped raw carrot provides 35% the DV for Vitamin C?! And when cooked with a fat like butter or oil, they’re packed with Vitamin A, which is great for our eyes. Polenta is full of vitamins, minerals, protein and fiber.

These zeppole are wonderful with Iced Italian Lemon Mochas! Are you ready to mix up a batch of sweet dough and get cooking with your kids? Shout Buon appetito (bwoan app uh tee toe) or enjoy your meal in Italian, give your family a BIG hug and enjoy! 

Sweet, Happy + Healthy Cooking, Erin & Jacqui
