Chocolate Peanut Butter Sorbet

Excited to bring you the chocolate peanut butter version of my light ice cream!

Normally I’m not a fan of chocolate ice cream, preferring real chocolate every time. But this time it’s different, somehow I’ve managed to get the intensity just right and the combo is bliss.

I’ve made it four times since the first time already! Just as well it’s super easy to make.

Applesauce Four ingredient Brownies – Ray Peat Inspired

ApplesauceBrowniesPink

I am slowly working my way through my recipes and tweaking them to be less full of nuts, less fats and introducing more Ray Peat friendly ingredients to offer maximum nutrition, even if it is a sweet treat. The Applesauce Four Ingredient Brownies turned out perfectly!

Good fats are great like cacao butter, coconut oil, even grass-fed normal butter, however when the fudge you are eating is equivalent to a tablespoon of fat each mouthful, well ‘the too much of a good thing’ rule may very well apply.

By the time you read this I will be in the wilds of Iceland, just spellbound by my surroundings and marveling how great it is to be alive. I did manage to whip up this new Healthy Chocolate Caramel Candy recipe before I went though.

Nut Free Nutella Cheesecake

Nutella Cheescake

How can this be a Nutella Cheesecake if it’s nut free?

As I’ve mentioned before, I am moving away from cakes and slices being made of all nuts because…

  1. They’re hard to digest
  2. They’re full of polyunsaturated fats, which we now know when eaten in excess, mess with a cell’s ability to process sugar (read more here.)

Potential cause of diabetes anyone?

Chocolate Sweet Potato Frosting

Full confession: this Chocolate Sweet Potato Frosting was not my idea.

I first heard about it on Mummy Made it and because I am currently zoned in on all things icing and frosting at the moment to zshush up my creations, I thought I would explore further.

Google reveals that quite a few knew about this about 5 years ago and I’m late to the party! Better late than never right?

DIY Healthy Chocolate Chips

chocchipsname

Every time I was in my local health store, I would look at the packets of healthy chocolate chips longingly, thinking of all the yummy treats to which I could add them – like my ice cream, brownies, slices, even biscuits.

But at $24 a pop for a little packet, that seemed a little indulgent to me – I want healthy ingredients, but that’s a bit ridiculous. And the non-healthy ones were not at option.

Healthy Chocolate Paddle Pops

If I’d known these Healthy Chocolate Paddle Pops were so easy to make, I would have done it years ago!

I’ve been reading lots of recipes for banana ice-cream lately with some peeps even making whole recipe books about it! And most others declaring that it is soooo good. I’ve been meaning to try it for a while, but I don’t often eat bananas as I find them too starchy and just all too much really.

I’ve bought bananas a few times and cut it up and whacked it in the freezer with the intention of giving it a go, to see if it is ‘just like normal ice-cream’ as they say but every time I would forget and 3 months later – oops the frozen bananas are a bit too rank to do anything other than throw them away. (Sorry food waste police!)

Chocolate Travel Bars

Chocolate Travel BarsI wanted to create something that I could take with me for hiking adventures or even work when I don’t have a fridge handy. These Chocolate Travel Bars are the answer.

While I totally love my normal fudge/chocolate creations, they are strictly fridge to mouth options only, as they melt into a gooey mess within half an hour of being out of the chilly environment.

Not so practical for the lunchbox or if you want to take travel snacks.

So while my last blog post was about how raw cacao is not that great for you after all (read it here)   – here’s a recipe using cacao!

What??

It’s ok, I haven’t gone mad, it’s just that I wanted to clarify that you don’t necessarily have to give it up altogether.
