Instructions
  1. To make the crust, place the flour sugar, butter and cacao in a big bowl and knead by hand until combined. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Press the pastry into a tart base and bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees celcius for about 20 minutes.
  3. Now place the rest of the ingredients into a food processor and blend until very creamy, scraping down the sides if needed. Depending on your processor this might take five to six blends.
  4. When the base is cooled down, pour the cheesecake mix and refrigerate until set. If you want to decorate with chocolate orange sandwich biscuits reserve some of the pastry and cut out biscuits. Bake for a bit shorter than the base. Also reserve some of the cheesecake mix and spread on half of the biscuits. Then sandwich them together.
  5. Enjoy

Coconut Cream and Berry Popsicles

Coconut Cream and Berry Popsicles

So, do you think you can rely on the Irish weather or the Irish weather forecast?

Nope, you cant.

This Saturday we were supposed to get beautiful sunshine and 20 degrees. Did we get it?

No we did not. It was a freezing horrible day and so so windy. But the optimist that I am I got up early and made beautiful popsicles for my little monkeys. We ate them anyway with big jumpers on.

So if you feel summery and in the mood for some popsicles the recipe is below.

Deep Pink Plum and Berry Smoothie

Deep Pink Plum and Berry Smoothie

I’m still fighting this nasty cold that I got about 4 days ago and I am really not happy. I haven’t been sick for over a year and I have way too much to do to be sick.

My two monkey are getting bolder by the minute and wont listen to anyone especially the small guy. Well actually both of them are just as bad as each other.

Work is busy and I have so many ideas fro recipe that I just don’t want to be sick.

Anyway to boost my immune system and hopefully get back on track very soon, tomorrow would be good 🙂 or Id prefer later today actually, I made this really old favourite of mine. The Pink Plum and Berry smoothie.

I don’t know about you but I try to buy seasonal fruit and veg but sometimes I’m in the mood for some berries and guess what when I buy them out of season they’re just so disappointingly sour. But frozen berries are always in season right? So This smoothie is nearly seasonal except for the plums and strawberries, I guess which were quite sour though.

So if you need a boost of vitamins here comes my recipe for the Deep Pink Plum and Berry Smoothie.
