  • Ok so you see haloumi pop up a bit on
    7 days ago by brownpapernutrition Ok so you see haloumi pop up a bit on my page - it's freakin delicious - but no doubt a few of you are wondering if it's 'healthy'. Well healthy firstly isn't restriction and avoiding foods that make you happy, e.g. haloumi, healthy is enjoying good food moderately and mindfully. Haloumi isn't an everyday cheese though 1) we'd probs go broke 2) it's higher in sodium than other cheeses and whilst a moderate level of good quality salt is necessary for our body we don't need to exceed the RDI of sodium by eating salty cheese everyday 3) whilst
  • Someone please deliver me the weekend? Had to work all
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition Someone please deliver me the weekend? Had to work all of last weekend sooooooo this hump day feels pretty ready to be a Friday. QUICK TIP for your platter endeavours as the festive season aka most hectic time of year fast approaches... Dips are rad and obvs super easy but they'll look a bit more fun if you pop different ones together in a bowl and spread them about a little, then give them a sprinkle of something. The sprinkles are the best part! Dukkah, sesame seeds, some chopped nuts or herbs, sea salt, ground spices like paprika, coriander, turmeric,

  • All about the fruit in salads at the moment adds
    1 week ago by brownpapernutrition All about the fruit in salads at the moment, adds delishhhhh flavour plus quality carbohydrate sources, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fibre - all the good stuff! This is one of my fave chickpea salads made with the obvious ingredient - chickpeas - and crunchy sprouts, celery, herbs and a scrumptious tahini yoghurt dressing. Nuts would be my other favourite ingredient to add into salads to make them a bit more fancy schmancy and to up the quality of nutrition (in an already nutritious meal lol but why hold back?!?!) - WHAT'S YOURS? Ps. This salad keeps really well for a few

PEANUT BUTTER AND DATE CARAMEL ICE CREAM

Yep. You heard it and it probably requires no further explanation because the ingredients in the title have well and truly drawn you in on this one.

To note, this ice cream is OUTRAGEOUSLY GOOD. Beyond that. It’s UNBELIEVABLE. However, it’s also quite rich and decadent even though it goes without the refined sugars, dairy, additives or preservatives etc of regular ice cream so just have a small portion to get your hit. You shouldn’t feel like too much more anyway because it will fill you up with it’s delicious healthy fats and proteins from the peanut butter, coconut cream and almond butter. Not to mention that sweetness from the dates and a bonus punch of fibre – seriously how many other ice creams give you a fibre hit?!?!?!

PEANUT BUTTER ICE CREAM WITH DATE CARAMEL

Serves 8-10
GF : DF : SF : VEGAN

Caramel:

1/2 cup medjool dates, pitted

1/4 cup almond butter

2 tablespoons almond milk, or add more if you need to loosen the caramel slightly

PB Ice Cream:

400ml coconut cream

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1 cup peanut butter

3 tablespoons maple syrup

For the caramel:

Combine all ingredients in a high powered food processor or blender and blitz until a sticky caramel consistency forms. You may need to move the mix around with a spatula and then blitz briefly again to ensure it is uniform. Remove from blender and set aside.

For the ice cream:

Place all ingredients in blender and blitz until creamy. Pour into a small (500-750ml) loaf tin or stainless steel bowl. Dollop the caramel through the ice cream as desired. Cover with a small piece of greaseproof paper, then cover with cling wrap and freeze for 12-18 hours.

When you are ready to serve remove the ice cream from the freezer for about 10 minutes prior, then scoop and serve as usual. The ice cream will become harder over time so it’s best consumed within a few days.
