The first time I served this dairy-free, sugar-free chocolate mousse to my husband I didn’t tell him what the main ingredient was and asked him to try and guess. Long story short, he didn’t have a clue that AVOCADOS are actually the main trickster in this dish.
This is such a simple and quick dessert to whip up if you’re feeling like something sweet after dinner. It’s also great for the kids because it looks and tastes naughty but is just made on avocados, dates, vanilla and carob powder. So it is dairy-free, sugar-free and caffeine-free. NOTHING NAUGHTY THERE. WOO HOO.
I knew Molly had definitely inherited a fair bit of my personality when at just five-months-old she happily sucked away on a lamb cutlet like it was the best thing since sliced bread (if you click through to see this recipe you’ll also be treated to the cuteness that is a video of Molly eating a lamb cutlet at just 5-months-old with no teeth).
At just over eight-months-old now, not much has changed and Molly loves anytime we have lamb for dinner. This is a jazzed up version of the humble lamb cutlet. The thyme and orange go so well together and it gives the meat a nice sweetness.
On Sunday, I was lucky enough to be asked to go on ABC radio 666 as a guest on their weekly Sunday Brunch program.
The theme was Snap, Crackle and Pop and they had me on for the Cake Of Sunday segment to talk about my egg-free, sugar-free, caffeine-free chocolate cupcakes.
At first when host Lish Fejer and I were discussing all the things the cupcakes DON’T have in them I’m pretty sure she was a bit concerned about whether or not they would actually taste good.
But as you can hear for yourself, Lish and guest DJ Netty from April’s Caravan couldn’t get enough of them.
