How to Make Easy Kiwi Lemonade With Probiotic, VSL#3!

Cherry ice cream sandwiches are the ultimate summer naughty treat.

Below is the recipe.

Cherry Icecream:
2 cups cherries, pitted/halved
2 tbsp water
juice 1 lemon
300ml cream
300ml milk
6 egg yolks
¾ cup castor sugar
Optional: add a shot of cherry liqueur

​Coconut Cherry Cookies:
1 cup castor sugar
140g unsalted butter, softened
2 eggs, beaten
2 cups plain flour
2 cups desiccated coconut
1/2 cup glace cherries, finely chopped

Ice Cream:
Place the cherries, water and lemon juice into a saucepan. Place over medium heat, stirring regularly for 5 minutes. Puree the cherries and then pour it through a strainer into a bowl. Using a wooden spoon, keep pushing the cherry mixture through the sieve to get as much liquid out as possible. Discard the remaining pulp. Allow to cool.

Place the egg yolks and castor sugar into a large bowl. Beat until pale and creamy. Place the milk and cream into a saucepan and bring to the boil. Remove from the heat and add the cherry puree (and cherry liqueur if using). Stir well.
Bit by bit, pour the milk/cherry mixture over the eggs/sugar, whisking well. Continue this gradually until all of the ingredients are combined. Pour it through a sieve, back into the saucepan. Place over low heat for 5-7 minutes until the custard thickens slightly (or coats the spoon), stirring regularly. Set aside to cool, then refrigerate until it is very cold.

Finish in an ice cream maker. If you don’t have one, you can place in the freezer and remove every half hour or so, give it a stir, scraping the edges. Continue this process until the mixture is sufficiently frozen.

Cookies:
Pre-heat the oven to 170 degrees Celsius.

Cream together the butter and sugar, then add the egg. Mix through until well combined. Add the glace cherries and mix through. Add the dry ingredients and using a wooden spoon, mix together until combined and a dough forms.

Using a spoon, make 20 balls of dough and place onto lined baking trays, ensuring you leave room in between each. With the palm of your hand, press down each ball to flatten it out. Bake for 12-13 minutes.

Remove and allow to cool completely before assembling your ice cream sandwiches.

Makes approx. 10

Crisp and fresh, with delicious rich fruit flavours, and aromas of ripe apples, subdued tropical fruit and citrus notes.

Wonderfully refreshing on the palate, this Sparkling Cuvee is a perfect accompaniment to any celebration. Proudly made from only the best selected South Eastern Australian wine grapes. This premium alcohol removed wine contains less than 0.5% alcohol by volume, well below the international standard for non-intoxicating, and a level similar to that found in natural fruit juices.

YORKSHIRE RETAILER LAUNCHES WEBSITE OFFERING BIG NAME BRAND BARGAINS

Website caters for the shoppers of big name discounters who would prefer big name branded products

StarBargains.co.uk has been launched by heritage Yorkshire retailer, Fultons Foods

SHOPPERS will now be able to bag huge savings on ambient food from leading brands, via a new website that has been launched by Yorkshire’s favourite bargain food retailer, Fultons Foods.

It offers an ever-changing selection of food & drink products from big name brands at significantly lower prices than supermarkets, as itsells items sourced both direct from manufacturers and from supermarkets’ surplus stock – including some products at even more significant discounts, which are close to or past their ‘best before’ dates.

The website offers amazing savings across four categories – including the iconic Fultons Foods, which makes well-known brands already stocked in the retailer’s 100 stores across Yorkshire, Lancashire, Nottingham and Teesside available to online shoppers around the country; and Posh Nosh which stocks premium brands at discounted prices.

Meanwhile Waste Not Want Not offers food that’s close to or just past its ‘best before date’, which the Food Standards Agency advises are perfectly consumable.

Home Basics features kitchen cupboard essentials at competitive prices.

Karen Gunter, director at Fultons Foods, said: “We are delighted to be bringing the great savings we offer shoppers in Fultons Foods’ stores to those in the UK who do not live within easy reach of a shop. Over recent years we have seen a rise in the popularity of discounters who offer own brand products at low prices such as Aldi and Lidl. We compliment these types of retailers – meeting the needs of those shoppers who want big savings but prefer to stick with big name brands and family favourites.

“We offer deals on food and drink items which have been sourced directly from manufacturers or bought as surplus stock. In addition to this, we also sell some items which are sold at even bigger discounts as they are close to or past their best before dates – these are clearly labelled and are perfectly fine to eat, but would otherwise end up contributing to the millions of tonnes of food that is discarded every year in the UK which could’ve been eaten.”

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) defines best before dates as being“about quality and not safety” and says “the food will be safe to eat after this date but may not be at its best. Its flavour and texture might not be as good.”

Meanwhile, the National Health Service (NHS) website echoes this and advises: “Every year, we throw away 7.2 million tonnes of food and drink in the UK, most of which could have been eaten. So think carefully before throwing away food past its “best before” date.”

To celebrate the launch of www.StarBargains.co.uk, customers can benefit from free delivery for all orders of £30 or more*.

Gunter continues:“We add around 250 new product deals every month to the site and are aiming to be the first port of call for monthly or weekly food shops. We offer a large range of fast moving deals – customers can come to us to both buy their favourite brands and also to try something a little different – all at heavily discounted ‘Yorkshire’ prices.”

Star Bargains offers an ever-changing selection of the best brand name food & drink products at significantly discounted prices compared to leading supermarkets online, everyday. The full range of products currently available can be found at www.starbargains.co.uk. Items are available while stocks last.

It is a simple recipe but when served on a hot day, nothing could be better.

https://www.primaledgehealth..com/recipes/blueberry-avocado-ketogenic-smoothie/

Avocado, blueberries and coconut milk make the base of this refreshing mini meal. There are many ways to can modify the smoothie and create longevity to this single idea. Sometimes I make mine with cacao nibs. I like blending in about 1 tablespoon to make a slight crunch. They remind me of chocolate chip pieces swimming around in the smoothie. I add the nibs at the end and pulse the mixture a few more times.

If you like spicy foods, add cayenne pepper! A spoonful of almond butter would make this keto smoothie extra creamy and thick. One teaspoon (and up to a tablespoon) of spirulina adds a funky flavor with nutritive benefits, you might want to add a few extra drops of sweetener to balance out the spirulina.

My homemade stevia extract is great to add in to this recipe. It takes care of the need for a sweetener and ice cubes all at the same time!
