Indulging my sweet toothPosted: April 27, 2011
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, 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!
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.
