MMMmmmmmmmm a gorgeous healthy sauce!

Hi there ... I've been busy this afternoon in the kitchen.  A roast for tea, a chocolate and zucchini cake, stewed rhubarb (fresh out of the garden) and a date orange puree/sauce.

This recipe is not my recipe .. I saw it on TV and Madalyn begged me to make it I did.
The recipe is from a gorgeous Australian Nutritionist called Janella Purcell.

The recipe is:-

1 cup of Dates (pitted and roughly chopped) ... I used the dried ones
1 cup of orange juice ..... I used one orange .. juiced after I had zested the rind
zest of one orange

Bring to a simmer in a small pan, simmer for 10 minutes or until dates are soft.  (I found it only took 5 minutes).

Once cooled add one cup of natural unsweetened yoghurt and blend it with a stick blender (or whatever you have available).

I must admit I was almost out of yoghurt so I think I added just over 1/2 a cup .... Oh My Goodness!  its sensational!  You must try it.

We had it with the stewed rhubarb but you could put it with any fruit or even as a topping on a pudding ... which is what I am going to do with the left overs.

Here it is with the stewed rhubarb and a slice of my chocolate zucchini cake ..... YUM!

Oh and just to sweeten the deal ... here is my sweet daughter Madalyn enjoying the best part of cake making.

 ... enjoy living a healthy but fun life.

  2. It doesn’t matter how long Vegan food recipes for beginners has kicked your butt, all that matters is that you keep looking for new ways to be successful . I have put this into practice and it works. Letting go of the one hundred percent raw food ideal has improved the quality of my relationships and even my career.


Thankyou for taking the time to leave me a lovely comment
