I thought I would ease into this blogging thing by posting another super easy, throw- together recipe and what else is easier to make than raw truffles.
I have been inspired by a batch of RAW Health ‘Blessed chocada truffles” I had bought in the health store and since I m a greedy person when it comes to food I wanted to have some more; there were three in the pack! What would I not do for an unsatisfied craving…
My kitchen cupboard is usually loaded with all kinds of baking material known to man, so i was pretty confident I can find something similar to make these.
I have also dressed them in different coloured coatings (coats?). Red freeze dried strawberries (these are fancy, but if you keep the jar/container opened for too long they become slightly wilted and sad, so better use up as much and as soon as you can), sesame seeds, desiccated coconut and matcha. Cause green. I’m not really a fan of this so called miracle food. I have tried matcha ice cream from a shop in Central London recently and I must say.. I try anything in terms of food..but this was not my cup of tea. OK I’ll stop now.
Here’s the ice cream for you to look at:
And here is the recipe:
