Cakes / Choc Bliss Balls
« on: January 19, 2014, 01:28:42 am »

Makes 15-20 balls  (egg free, gluten free, dairy free, processed sugar free)

Ingredients:
-   25 grams Cacao Nibs (or 50 grams Cocoa if you donít have access to cacao)
-   120 grams Dried pitted dates
-   50 grams Walnuts
-   1 teaspoons of Tahini
-   Coconut to roll

What to do:
o   Grind cacoa nibs for 15 seconds, speed 9
o   Add all other ingredients, except coconut, and blitz for 20 seconds, speed 8. Add more tahini if the mix is too dry
o   Using wet hands, roll into walnut-sized balls, and roll in coconut
o   Put them in the fridge to firm up

For something different:
-   Use a combination of other dried fruit to mix up the flavours, such as prune or dried apricot
-   Roll in sesame seeds or cocoa, if you prefer

Drinks / Watermelon Smoothie
« on: December 09, 2013, 02:21:18 am »
Hi,
I've just returned from Thailand, where I ate more watermelon than any other food this week! It was spectacular. So, obviously, I came home and ate some more.

Watermelon Smoothie:

3-4 chunks of watermelon, straight from the freezer
1 kiwi fruit with the gnarled ends chopped off, but don't bother peeling.

Blitz on speed 8-9 for 20 seconds

Add a big blob of yoghurt, 150g of milk, and a sprinkle of chia seeds

Whizz up on speed 5 for 1 minute.

Hi everyone,
I'm Lisa, from Melbourne.
I got my thermie about 2 years ago, and love it. In fact, I rarely cook in any other way. I'm in a wheelchair, and I found that my "thermonuclear husband" has taken out all the physical tasks of cooking, and allowed me to be creative.
I've been so creative, in fact, that I've written 2 cookbooks. I noticed that some of my friends with thermomixes were not getting great use out of them, and one friend stated that the recipes used too many ingredients for a busy mum to remember to buy at the supermarket. So....I developed 2 recipe books of 5 ingredients or less.
You can download them now from www.thermocookbook.com
The first book is free
Cheers,
Lisa
