Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons of Zint Gelatin
  • 50 grams of Zint Xylitol
  • 400 ml of whole milk
  • 400ml of double cream
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon zest
  • 1 vanilla pod (split in half and separated from the seeds)
  • 250 grams of fresh raspberries

Directions

Combine 125ml of the milk and the gelatin in a small bowl and leave to absorb for 10 minutes. Put the remaining milk, cream, xylitol, lemon zest and vanilla pod and seeds into a heavy-based saucepan. Bring it to a boil while whisking to disperse the seeds. Remove it from the heat, remove the vanilla pods, then whisk in the gelatin-and-milk mixture. Let it cool slightly (5 minutes) then pour it into dariole moulds or glasses and refrigerate until set (4 hours). For the raspberry sauce, put most of the fresh raspberries and one tablespoon of water in a pan. Use a fork to mash the raspberries and bring to a boil. Add 30 grams of xylitol and simmer for 3 minutes, or until xylitol has dissolved. Pass it through a fine sieve, pressing the juices from the raspberries, and let it cool a little. Then chill it in the fridge to let the sauce thicken a little. Served the finished panna cotta with fresh raspberries and a pour of the raspberry sauce. You’ll get a sharp kick to complement the sweet vanilla taste of the panna cotta.

Vanilla and Raspberry Panna Cotta

I once heard someone say a panna cotta is nothing more than a blancmange with a fancy accent. It made me laugh. Personally, I try not to hate on food things until I’ve tried to make them at least a few times—and even as a chef there are certain things I’ve only made a few times. Panna cotta, however, isn't one of them. I've probably made thousands over the years, and the humble panna cotta—or blancmange with a fancy accent—still always makes me smile when I have my first taste. For this vanilla and raspberry panna cotta, we’re using two Zint products: gelatin and xylitol. The fresh vanilla pod and seeds give it extra flavor without having to use too much sweetener.

For weeks I was inflated with the idea of whipped feta. I have no idea why; I don’t know where I saw it, read about it or heard of it, but I certainly never tasted it and wasn’t really sure that it was a thing. Thank goodness it’s a thing.

Blueberry Smoothie

Blueberry Smoothie

This deliciously healthy smoothie is made with blueberries, walnuts, almond milk, and chia seeds, guaranteeing a nutritional boost to your day. Once school goes back into session, the next thing in store is usually shared colds and sneezes. During the start to flu season it’s a good idea to increase your intake of antioxidants to help out the immune system. Blueberries have some of the highest amounts of antioxidants found in any food, and hence this smoothie. It’s a breakfast that both kids and adults can enjoy before rushing out the door in during a busy morning.

The inspiration for this blueberry explosion of a smoothie bowl started with a blogging retreat to Minneapolis, Minnesota. And it ended in between the seemingly endless rows of blueberry bushes at Turkey Hill Farm in Haverhill, Massachusetts.

 So many lemon recipes suffer from the wimp factor.  They add a tablespoon of lemon juice or the zest of one lemon and then have the nerve to call themselves a lemon this or a lemon that.  It’s criminal.

Avocado Honey Ice Cream

I know avocado honey ice might seem like a crazy flavor, but it was actually really delicious. The avocado taste is very mild and healthy fat gives this ice cream a nice rich texture. Make sure you use a high quality honey, since the flavor of the honey really shines through in this recipe. I’m obsessed with

I didn’t plan on sharing the recipe for these kiwi coconut chia popsicles. I posted a photo of it on Instagram on St. Patrick’s day simply because I wanted to share something green. People went crazy for the photo! (Well, crazy for my standards. I haven’t hit anything close to viral. I’m working on it…) People loved it, and when asked for the recipe, of course I had to deliver.

Beautiful 7 layer rainbow smoothie recipe! Full of tons of fruit and topped with a fruit skewer, it’s the ultimate rainbow smoothie!
There is just something about rainbow food that makes me feel joyful – anyone else feel that?! It’s probably because rainbows bring about thoughts of sunshine, spring, and baby animals.. hahaha :)

Guilt-free Mug Cake

Guilt-free Mug Cake

I satisfy my cake craving by making this Skinny Single-Serving Raspberry Chocolate Chip Mug Cake back at home. It has two of my favorite components from those bakery’s cakes—fresh berries and lots of decadent chocolate—but unlike their desserts, this healthy one is perfectly portioned and contains no oil, eggs, refined flour, or sugar.
