Coconut Whipped Cream « Nutty Kitchen
We love our whipped cream in coffee, on berries for dessert, really on any of our primal desserts. But it’s nice to have an alternative to dairy and for our Paleo friends. Henry thought it would be good to have some cold coconut milk and stuck a can into the fridge for a couple of hours. When he opened it he noticed that it had gotten very thick on top, so he scooped it out and noticed that it had separated from the coconut water. So he added a little cinnamon and a little organic vanilla extract to the thick coconut and whipped it up. So since then we’ve been enjoying our morning cup of coffee with a spoon full. So here are a couple of pictures for you – try it, it is so incredibly easy and completely gluten and dairy-free. Step 1: Take a “full fat” can of Organic Coconut Milk and place it in the fridge for some time or best over night Refrigerated Coconut Milk being scooped out by Henry Coconut Water Step 4: Enjoy every bite, anyway you like!

Sweetened Condensed Milk Recipe I recently received a request from a fan of my Arabic blog (www.fattoush.me) asking for the recipe of sweetened condensed milk. I personally use sweetened condensed milk a lot. One of the things that bother me the most when I am cooking or baking is finding I ran out of stock of an ingredient I need or that it is expired. I hate having to rush to the nearest supermarket to fetch it! So years ago, I did some research, and luckily found that there are quite some items that you can substitute or do yourself at home. The recipe for preparing sweetened condensed milk is quite basic and easy. The recipe below yields about 11/3 cup of sweetened condensed milk, about the same quantity as is in one can. Note: if you are using the sweetened condensed milk to sweeten your tea, you can opt to reduce the fat content by reducing the butter called for in the recipe. Preparation time: 5 min Ingredients: 1/4 cup (50 grams) butter2/3 cup sugar1 cup powder milk1/3 cup boiling water 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

My New Best Pizza Dough As you must have noticed by now, we love pizza here! It’s okay to be a pizza fiend. No, really, it is. It’s by far our favorite junk food Friday meal. Since I usually top ours with not all too much cheese, my own pizza sauce and add loads of fresh veggies, I’m not quite sure just how junky it still is. Or maybe I have a different perspective on what really constitutes junk food. I’ve tried lots of recipes over the years. What was even more depressing were all those times I couldn’t get the dough to rise no matter what I tried. Now, if you need me… I’ll be on the Stairmaster. Ingredients: 1 cup warm water 2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 2 tsp instant yeast 2 tbsp honey 3 tbsp olive oil 1 1/2 tsp salt (2 tsp also works well) Directions: We’ll be needing yeast—I opted for instant yeast but feel free to use active dry yeast—salt and olive oil. You can either use your stand-mixer, food processor or hands for this. Add 2 tbsp honey. And add 1 cup warm water to it. Add the oil and 1 cup of flour.

The Something Random Guide to: Making A Vodka Infusion., 12/05/05, Something Random In this case a delicious Skittles Vodka No doubt this can be attempted with other types of sweets but we find that the skittle-like variety work very well. Chocolate is a big no-no unless you want to drink something that looks not unlike sewage. There are some that would claim that Tom and I make dirt. Ingredients This makes quite a bit and is a decent amount for a houseparty. 5 bottles Tesco's Pavlov Vodka (70cl £6.42)Oh dear God. Method First soak the bottles in hot water to remove the label, this will come off quite easily. Enjoy 5 days of shaking the bottles at regular intervals to ensure that the sweets dissolve. For an extra classy look print off a label for each bottle and tape them on. Enjoy! Mx EDIT: we've recently found that a single piece of kitchen towel lining a sieve works a hell of a lot better than a filter in a funnel.

ice candy ice candy one of the things i usually bring back from the philippines is a small packet of narrow plastic bags used for making ice candy. i am more of a popsicle than ice cream person, and whenever i have a little juice or some overripe fruit, i like to have the bags on hand so i chop or purée the fruit, add the juice, then throw them in the freezer for a future, frosty treat. ice candy is basically a popsicle made usually from a combination of fruit and water, and the one i recall seeing the most in the philippines is one made from sweetened young coconut water (buko juice) and shreds of the young coconut meat. however, you can make them from whatever your creativity or your pantry will allow. hey, any chance this qualifies for lasang pinoy 3?
