Oh it’s good to be back!!! I’m beyond happy to have time to blog again. Uni is done for the year and now the fun begins.
And to top that, I was/am Loving Earths featured foodie for November. I’m still pinching myself because this was a huge goal for me and I’m so happy with the recipes that my brain came up with, and having myself and friends taste test I can guarantee they are delicious. They are all on the Loving Earth website >> Caramelised buckini popsicles, Cookie Slice, Choc, Mandarin tarts, Neapolitan Ice cream cake, Sunday Smoothie. Arghh, I love them all so much but in saying that the popsicles will be found 24/7 in my freezer this summer ☼
I thought I’d share this peppermint slice ASAP because not only is it utterly delicious and perfect for this weather I’ve also had quite a few people ask me for the recipe. So here it is ☼ I kept this is the freezer and eat
a piece, okay maybe two, straight out of there. The crisp real peppermint flavour cuts through the rich chocolate like nothing else.
☞ Blaze thought the choc, peppermint combination smelt pretty darn good. BROWN AND WHITE x 2, so cute.

To finish off I just wanted to share this quote, it really resonates with me as I believe it’s true and by becoming a dietician I will be qualified to help people feel their best. Our body loves attention and nourishment and I believe when you give it just that it truly does thrive.

Pulse nuts in a food processor until they are small chunks
Add the rest of the ingredients and pulse until the base sticks together easily
Press down into a dish lined with baking paper and place in the freezer or fridge
Drain and rinse soaked cashews
Add everything into a food processor and pulse until smooth
Spread out evenly over the base and put back into fridge / freezer.
Pulse all ingredients in a food processor until smooth, then spread evenly over the peppermint layer and place in the fridge for an hour
Cut into desired sized square or rectangles. I like to place mine in the freezer from an hour before I eat them, but depends if you like them to be harder or softer… or you just can’t wait to eat it 😉
Store in freezer for up to 2 months… if they last that long.
