Continuing with my soft diet, it has taken me 3 attempts at some form of dinner tonight. My first attempt was a blended salad, which didn’t quite work. I think I went wrong when I added the tomato. The second attempt was chocolate mylk from Ani Raw Food Kitchen by Ani Phyo which was great but I don’t have a nut bag so there were still bits of almonds in it that would get stuck in my, hopefully, healing gums. Tom liked it. I thought it tasted exactly like chocolate milk but clearly it’s been a while as Tom disagreed. So, I learnt two things from this try- I need to purchase a nut bag as I will definitely be drinking this when my gums have healed and, secondly, my magimix does not deal with a high volume of liquid. I made such a mess in the kitchen. I’ll probably be finding splashes of the mylk for the next few days. The final attempt, also from Ani’s book, was carob pudding. Wow, this was amazing! It was so good that I ate the majority of it before taking a photograph! Here what was left when I remembered to take a photo:
All that’s in it (for one serving) is half an avocado, half a banana, and 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder (ani’s recipe contains carob instead of the cocoa). Tom loved it too.
I can’t believe the weekend’s almost over and I’m about to start a 6 day working week. Nevermind. Hope you’ve had a good weekend.
Update: have made this again since and it wasn’t as good because I didn’t use really ripe bananas and avocado. So the riper the fruits, the better.
