Raw chocolate treats I made this week…

These two recipes go together.

Basically I was making a fudge cake for a party, but I couldn’t get all the fudge out of the blender.

You could use a food processor, or, as I did, make a  rich raw chocolate for adults, and then add milk and 2 bananas to the remaining fudge, to create a chocolate mix for iced-lollies.

This is also good use of the walnut milk, which is a by-product of the cake recipe, great!

The lollies contain very little cacao, so work well as healthy treats for young children.

I was in a hurry so unfortunately no photo :( (except for the kids enjoying the lollies!)

Tahini-Lemon-Honey Salad Dressing

It can also be used as a sandwich (or toast) spread.  Or as dip, sprinkled with paprika and cold-pressed olive oil, with baked aubergine as per the photograph, yummy.

It is one of my two favourite dressings, and takes almost no time to prepare. (more…)
