Silly girl! (That's an Imse Vimse wool cover on her bum by the way! I love it! I only splurged for one but it's great at night and for toilet training!)
We finally decided to give banana soft serve a go...
TOTAL YUM! I topped mine with cacao nibs!
I also decided to give nut cheese a whirl! Sooooooo glad that I did! It was really delicious! The only problem is that it takes a long time so if you know you want it, you have to plan ahead. (or you could just keep some on hand!) I was intimidated by it before but it is actually really, really easy and kinda fun! I used this recipe for 'goat' cheese from Choosing Raw. It's a macadamia nut cheese. It was really delicious! Though next time I will add more lemon and water because it came out a bit dry! Here is the process!
You just put a cup of soaked macadamia nuts in the food processor with 2 teaspoons miso!
Miso is traditionally a fermented soybean paste but we don't eat soy and you can get a lot of different types of miso these days. We use chickpea miso!
Ok, so then you process the nuts, miso, and a few Tbs of water. This is where I should have added more! I also added some probiotic powder, but that is optional!
Then you place the mixture in a clean jar, cover it with cheesecloth and a rubberband (or one of your daughter's hairbands because you can't seem to find a rubberband anywhere!) and place it in a warm spot for up to 12 hours. Gena says 85-95 degrees is optimal. I just turned my oven light on, put the jar in the back by the light and closed the door! Worked great! After it was good and fermented, I added some sea salt and lemon juice! I will definitely be trying this again! My next adventure is going to be a cashew cheese I think! Something with sundried tomatoes perhaps? (you know I love my sundrieds!)
Well, I hope you enjoyed this hodge podge post! :-) What is your favorite springtime activity!?!?!
I must go now, lots of cuddles and silliness await!
