Indulging my sweet tooth

Hai guys! Hope your week’s coming along nicely. Mine hasn’t really begun yet — work doesn’t start until tomorrow, meaning I have time to edit my pictures from the week-end, and maybe write down a post or two… and do laundry, but you don’t want to hear about that. Or do you? I do use soap nuts, so this could be of interest for an eco-friendly blog.

Until then, have some raw recipe tweaking:

Mango smoothie


Mango Smoothie, adapted from the best of Raw — serves 2

2 oranges, peeled and cut in chunks • 1 mango, pitted, peeled and diced • 2 frozen bananas cut in big chunks • lemon juice • 1 tbsp ground flax seeds

Blend. Serve. Make stupid happy noises.

My first real, honest to god fruit smoothie! I was so proud. It was super creamy. The texture would have been even better using a blender (my motto these days… should have picked a high-speed blender instead of a food processor, damn it), but still… delicious!

PB truffle babies

Super easy PB truffles… there is some good in this world after all!

Peanut Butter Truffle Babies, adapted from CCK Hot Cocoa Fudge Babies

20g cashews • 85g dates • 1 tbsp peanut butter • 1 tbsp cocoa powder

Blend until smooth (I had to scrape down the sides of the bowl a few times until the right texture was achieved — it looked a bit powdery, but it held its shape alright). Roll into balls, or shape in bars, refrigerate, and enjoy!

I’d say “that’s it”, but smoothie & PB truffles deserve better, don’t you think? I’ll be back with pictures from South France and some rambling… later. Take care, and indulge your sweet tooth, too.
