It’s Good Friday and I’ve got 4 sessions this morning and then I’m off until Tuesday which makes it a very good Friday indeed.
After work I’m going to swing around the trees for a couple of hours at Go Ape margam with my girlfriend and then we are off to check out the new steak restaurant in Swansea, Miller & Carter.
Got a nice Easter planned full of walks (weather permitting) and of course some good eating. I love cooking, especially when you have the time to do it.
So we’ve got a few recipes kept to one side to have a go at this weekend and as it’s Easter of course there’s a couple of naughty ones in there.
BUT nowhere near as bad as shop bought with all of the hidden nasties in them.
My clients and me have an armory of healthier treat recipes to use at special occasions or when the cravings really kick in. I found this recipe courtesy of Chocolate Covered Katie https://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2013/03/20/healthy-cadbury-creme-eggs/
And we are going to give it a go this weekend.
Healthy Ice Creme Eggs!
Okay so for the filling:
– 240g frozen mango/peaches
– 1/4 cup milk of choice
– pinch of stevia or 1-2 tsp sugar
– Ice cream of choice – I’ve just discovered (but not tried) tesco do a ‘healthier’ ice cream called Halo Top which you could try
For the chocolate:
– 1/4 cup of cocoa or cacao powder
– 2 tbsp coconut oil
– 1 tbsp maple syrup/honey
Directions (off the website):
First, get out an egg-shaped mold (available at in the cake-decorating section of shops, or if you haven’t just a cup cake holder) and put it in the freezer to chill. To make the yolks, combine the first three ingredients in a high-powered blender and blend until completely smooth. Scoop out and freeze while you make the chocolate. Combine chocolate ingredients and stir to form a thin sauce, then take out the chilled mold and paint chocolate in a thin layer around the bottom and up the sides of each egg, using a small spoon. Freeze five minutes, then do another layer. Fill with the ice cream, then add a tiny scoop of the yellow filling to the middles.
How does that sound?
No High Fructose Corn Syrup in sight!!!
Have a cracking Easter and enjoy your time off.
