The last couple of days here have finally begun to feel like summer! It has been in the 70s and very sunny! So we went for a walk. Our first walk outside of the city since we moved here!
Gorgeous birch tree canopy! The dogs thoroughly enjoyed themselves!
Oh, my… look at that little cutie!
With the hotter weather, summer treats have been on the menu!
Oh… and of course they include carob!
Carob/almond covered banana bites!
These are so good!
Gooey Caramel Carob Almond Cups!
White Chocolate Tahini/lucuma pecan cups! (these were amazing)
Frozen bananas on a stick? Better than you think!
For each of these treats, I used the same ratios. You will be surprised how many cups you can make out of this!
1 T almond, tahini or cashew butter
3-4 T almond milk (or other nondairy milk)
1 T date paste (dates blended with a bit of water until a paste)
1 T carob powder/lucuma powder
Mix ingredients really well. You want the “batter” to be thick like a pudding. Fill (silicone) muffin liners or dip bananas in and freeze!
For the cups, I have used both date paste and brown rice syrup for the filling. The brown rice syrup doesn’t freeze, so it stays gooey, while the date does. I also chopped almond/pecans on top of the caramel in the cups. Enjoy and let me know if you try them!
