With Valentines being tomorrow I thought I would share with you a really simple recipe that you can create as a sweet treat for the special someone in your life. With the added bonus of being able to eat it yourself too :)
This is based on an old favourite of mine by Samantha Hadidi who makes insane food by the way so please check her out!
Makes 25 roughly
80g Strawberry Whey ( I used Optimum Nutrition)
40g Date Nectar or honey (I used Beloved)
15g Milled linseed with sesamee, raspberries & blackberries (Aldi) this is optional just adds a litle extra
1 tsp strawberry essence
150g Frozen mixed berries
50g 85% dark chocolate (I used Lindt Excellence)
*Add the tahini, date nectar and berries to a bowl & microwave for 30-45 secs to heat them through
*Mix in the whey, linseed and essence until it is all combines
*Spoon mixture into a clingfilm lined container and even out
*Place in the freezer for a couple of hours to set
*Once set remove and cut into pieces.
*Melt the chocolate and coat half the pieces in it and leave to set on a wire rack. The other half you can place in the fridge to soften a bit before eating.
If you eat the coated ones after they have set the inside goes all gooey kind of like turkish delight.
These can be stored in the freezer and enjoyed whenever you fancy :)
Tag me if you make them :) and Happy Valentines
