Sweet Treats recipe trial today. Not having a particularly sweet tooth myself, sweet treats in our house tend to be free from added sweeteners. They do contain fruit and fruit is very high in fructose which is of course a sugar and like any sugar should not be overindulged in - yeah yeah I know it's dull, but it's true and all those "healthy sweeteners" end up as glucose just like sugar.
The upside of sweetening with fruit is that it provides complexity of flavour, fibre, vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants and phyto nutrients, so there is some reprieve.
Anyhow back to the fun of recipe trials....these little bundles of confetti colour are apricot and cranberry bliss balls. They are delicious! I know I should be using sulphur free and that will be my next trial. In the meantime aren't they pretty?
Ommmmmm. Bliss Balls for Buddah. These are chocolate fudge bliss balls. Organic power packed packages with double the cocoa of my sour cherry, coconut and chia bliss balls. mmmmmmm
These little beauties are raw muesli slice. They have some crunch thanks to buckwheat, sesame and sunflower seeds. All of my sweet treats are lunchbox friendly, gluten, dairy, egg and nut free. To order visit the Bliss Ball page
This awesome kitchen appliance has literally changed lives. The health benefits that come from using it are numerous, with the most obvious being that you are in FULL CONTROL of the ingredients that go into your meals and snacks.
Making everything from scratch has never been easier and you do not need to be a traditional cook to master the Thermomix. It is seriously a kitchen revolution in itself. People who could never cook before now can. People who hated cooking, now love it. Time poor people now have home cooked meals on the table every evening.
The exposure trough the Thermomix recipe community to thousands of recipes from all around the world is unrivalled.
Almost every dish can now be a one pot wonder.
The Thermomix can quite easily be used 4 times a day, EVERY DAY.
In our home, so far today it has produced porridge for the family, smoothies for morning tea and french onion soup for lunch.
what's for dinner? I hear you ask.
Steamed Salmon with carrot and zucchini ribbons and a dreamy sauce (which will be made form the soup that cooks in the thermomix whilst the salmon is steaming)
Not bad is it?
I use the Thermomix in most of my cooking classes and it is especially handy in the Asian classes where chopping is a time consuming part of the food prep.
For any questions regarding classes or the Thermomix please feel free to contact me.
