I’ve been experimenting in the kitchen. Want to see?
Baby Spinach and Cashew dip.
Place the wrap on the tray, brush or spray with olive oil (or coconut, or palm fruit, or whatever takes your fancy), grind a little salt over, slice into good, dipping sized pieces, and bake until brown and crisp. A few carrot straws, some slices of cucumber, crunchy flat bread thingos, and homemade spinach dip… it’s yummy stuff, folks.
And for afters? (Because, you need afters, after a …snack? Yes, sometimes you do )
This is so easy to make, and is highly customisable (I’m sure that’s a word).
My Mama makes it with crushed maltesers, or (my favourite) crushed violet crumble mixed through, as a slice, and gives it a base and lid of malt biscuits. Our farmer friend recently used the same recipe with frozen, whipped bananas – very nice! So I had to try it. Ready for this deeply complex recipe? Here we go:
Whip 600 mls of cream
Fold in 1 tin sweetened condensed milk
Add your favourite fruit/chocolate/nuts
Spread into a dish, and freeze.
Too easy!! :D
I chose to go with the whipped banana and blueberries, with blueberries to garnish, but the options are endless; honey and macadamias, smashed up (your fav choc bar here), mango, plain vanilla… I’m not such a sweet tooth, so I added another 200mls of whipped cream to the same amount of condensed milk. It’s a quick, fun thing to make with the little people of the house, and although it is not as fluffy as regular ice-cream, it was well received here.
Lastly, and this has nothing to do with food, but I just want to show you… aren’t these pretty?
