J is for ?
It’s the weekend 🙂 Yay… although after the weekend school is back so that’s a shame 😦 I just love the school holidays, all the time spent together chatting, playing, baking, learning, days out and lax bedtimes! 🙂 I’ve just realised this challenge is a lot tougher than I thought! No longer can I photograph my dinner and post it the next morning, or even make a yummy cake and share it with you! I have to think carefully, plan and post to the letter! 😛 🙂 This morning we counted and realised we’re not even half way through yet (yes we were alphabet counting not thinking of the date)! Anyway, today finds us on
Juice was my first obvious choice, closely followed by jam but I thought its my chocolate or cake day! What can I do! I even had a look in a couple of books but only found foods preceded by girls names! Also, I had friends round all day yesterday and I have friends over again today so no time to be making blog food! (only for us eating later of course)! I’m thinking chocolate mud cake 🙂 would go down well with the children that are coming! Anyway… back to ‘J’ 😛 🙂 My son is telling me what I’ve made is not what I say it is… but then is it ever! 😛 So, I’m sticking with the plan and I’ve made
Jolly Jam! 🙂 🙂 🙂 Jolly Chocolate Jam to be precise! 😛 🙂
It’s chocolatey! It’s spreadable! It’s sweet! It’s sticky! It’s a cake filling! It’s a porridge topper! That makes it jam yes? 😛 Of course it does! Oh… and its sugar free, dairy free, gluten free and RAW! (yes, thinking of you M)! 🙂
Let’s make jam! 🙂
- 75g cashews
- 40g almond butter
- 2 teaspoons cacao
- 5g coconut oil melted
- 30-40ml unsweetened carton coconut milk
- pinch of salt (I use pink Himalayan)
- dusting of cinnamon
- Blitz the cashews until they are a fine powder, then blitz some more until the oils are released and you start to get a thicker paste.
- Add the almond butter and cacao and mix well.
Mix some more and it will become oilier.
- Stir in the melted coconut oil.
- Pour in the coconut milk a bit at a time and mix well to check the consistency. It should be thick but spreadable.
- Add your salt and cinnamon and mix in.
Taste test and adjust as necessary.
