With all the hoohaa about Maria Kang lately, I got to looking at her blog. She has a section on clean eating (although her idea of clean eating is different to mine) and there are two great recipes on there that are so good I had to share them.

One is a zucchini brownie that is seriously delicious. Although not super healthy, it's a lot better than your average brownie. You could make it better by not adding the chocolate chips and halving the sugar.

And this 'ice cream' is AMAZING! I was sceptical that it would really be like real ice cream but it really, truly is. My DS just smashed a bowl of it and I've put the rest in the freezer for some dessert tonight.

I make that ice cream regularly but with just peanut butter and bananas.

My three year old chooses, peels and chops the bananas and puts them in the freezer. It's a wonderful recipe for the wee ones to feel involved. I prefer it with natural peanut butter but any is fine I think.

I started a little Facebook page with healthy recipes mainly aimed at children but stuff adults will eat too.

I haven't added much lately as I've been a bit out of action but it's handy for me to have them all in one place.

Thanks for the zucchini recipe! I'll give that a go shortly as I have a load to use up. smile.gif

I have an awesome one!

In your food processor, blend one cup of walnuts, 1 1/4 cup dates (if they are dried, soak in water for a bit first) and 1/2 cup cocoa. You may need a little extra water if using dried dates. Spread in a slice tin, chill and then slice into about 2 dozen pieces.

It's super yummy and my kids love it.

YUUUUUUMMMM! I have been meaning to make that slice for a while but only go around to it today...delicious! I swear my two year old thought it was real chocolate.

Could you roll it into balls and cover with coconut, like truffles? Do you think it would stay together?

Yes, I've done that. I soaked the dates too long once and it was too wet to stay in a bar shape. It did stay in balls though but I rolled them in bitter cocoa rather than coconut.

I'm glad you enjoyed it!
