Drizzle and Crunch

There are all of four things in this post: something thought-up (was going to say invented, but that seems a bit rich), something tried, something copied and something failed. To get the "fail" off my chest first I tried winging a coconut ice cream that didn't go so well. I was inspired by an ice cream purchase for the bf, three flavours of ice cream made with organic cream: banana chocolate, ricca mocca, and the one that inspired failure, coconut cocoa.

Soft is Served.

Mmm. MMMmmmm!
I am right now eating my first ever softserve. It is a post-yoga snack-turned-quite-a-meal, and it is bang-smack-wow delish. I made a double batch and if it wasn't so filling I'd be pulling the next half from the freezer right away: I dumped 1 pack of silken tofu, three tbsp rice protein, 1 small tbsp maca powder and about 2,5 bananas frozen in chunks into the blender and gave it the "ice crushing" programme - essentially top speed in short intervals - which left plenty of big, gooey banana chunks. I have never been one of the many fans of softice or melted ice cream, but the texture is definitely the only thing keeping me from becoming big time addicted to this.

Jam and Parmesan

While running today I did something as devoid of dignity as trip in my own shoelaces. Nothing happened though, except I donated some skin off my hands and elbow.

Cookies Times Two... and Mylk.

For some time I've been wanting to bake some cookies for the bf - good cookies are so expensive I think, and really I'm thinking they should be easy to bake.

More Raw

I bought my second raw food cookbook. It's Raw Food Real World, and I'm loving it. I have it decked out with little post-its at all the recipes I want to make. First. Then later I have no doubt I'll make all.

Green Cookies. Tofu Muffins. Improv Ice Cream.

When I started baking muffins, apparently I was opening up a big ol' Pandora's Box of Baking. I've baked green cookies, and tofu muffins - and I improvised some ice cream which I realise has nothing to do with baking.
