Ice ‘cream’ that’s Nice-cream.

Had to share this recipe. 

Not only is it vegan, but it’s dead-easy. (But looks like you really went to a lot of effort.) – Which is my favourite kind of recipe!


Using an electric hand mixer, mix: 

1 can coconut milk, 

I can condensed coconut milk (yep: That’s a thing! I found it with the other condensed/evaporated milks etc at Woolies), 

2 tsp vanilla, 

And a pinch of salt. 

Mix, then freeze. That’s it.

I added pink colour, pink sprinkles & strawberries! πŸ’— Easy-as! And the girls loved it! πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ

Crouching tiger, hidden courgette.

Zucchinis. Many many zucchinis. 

While it seems our fruit efforts were a bust this year, our veggies are killin it! Although technically tomatoes are a fruit right? And the girls have been in the garden popping cherry tomatoes into their mouths almost everyday. So all our efforts weren’t in vain!

I don’t know if you’ve tried zucchini brownies, but these are AWESOME. Rich, chocolatey and fudgey! And not the slightest hint of zucchini taste! The girls wolfed them down! (And they’re vegan! So I wolfed them too! LOL)

I while back I spoke to our neighbour about how great it would be to host some bee hives on our properties, to pollinate our plants, help the environment, and learn more about beekeeping.

Not long after, I met a local apiarist at our farmers market, and found out that the trees on our place are particularly sought after, and only flower for 3 or 4 weeks once every 5 years! 

So Paul the bee guy came and had a look at the farm, said it all looked great, but when I checked with the ladies who keep their horses here, they weren’t so keen. Fair enough. So I told Paul it was a no-go as not everyone was comfortable having them here, but my neighbour Murray asked for Paul’s number.

Well. That should’ve been that. But instead, Paul moved a few hives to my neighbour’s place (which is wonderful, and he is well within his right to do on acerage in a rural area)
