I’ve been experimenting in the kitchen. Want to see? :D
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 :P )
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?
