Nudie coconut yogurt

Nudie Coconut Yogurt

 

 

Coconut yogurt is one of those things you either love or hate. To some it is deliciously creamy and full flavoured and to others it has a weird taste and texture and not creamy at all.

I’m one of those people who think it has a weird taste. But in saying that I loved the packaging and the super cute label of “cows need a holiday”. So I today I tried the vanilla and blueberry flavours.

Another thing that I quite liked about this yogurt is that none of the flavours contained any added sugar, But something that was disappointing was that there is about 1,700 kj in one of these tubs.

Also the flavour was half there and felt like it was missing something, but I am used to cows yogurt. Luckily other people in my family liked it so it ended up getting eaten. Also the blueberries supplied a bit of sweetness.

Sadly, I didn’t get any photos of the inside of the vanilla container, but something that was good was I liked this flavour more, but not enough to buy it again 😦     Again, similar to the blueberry, the texture was runny and not nearly as creamy as cows yogurt.

So I cannot say I necessarily ‘enjoyed’ this product enough to buy it again:(

Banana cinnamon Bread

Banana Cinnamon Bread

‘A moist and tender loaf with loads of  banana-y & cinnamon-y flavour! YUM!’

Banana bread. One of those many special things in life. But there is something better than the glorious loaf. 2 loaves of course!!! And how about using wholemeal flour instead of refined white?

 I always use wholemeal and I never notice the difference, in fact I think it yields a more moist loaf.

Take that refined white flour banana bread!!!! 🙂IMG_2203

Moist and tender with loads of delicious banana-y and cinnamon-y flavour!YUM! This classic recipe is from a AWW cookbook called: All Time Favourites, and that’s exactly what it is: an all time favourite! You can’t go wrong with this one.
