This is to die for!
I’ve adapted the recipe from one I sourced online. Made it a little less sickly sweet and more tangy.
Whilst the ingredients are mostly nutritious it doesn’t mean it’s a free for all. This is still a treat to enjoy once in a while.
Because I can’t trust myself with sweet foods (would’ve thought I could by now, eye roll), whenever I make sweet things I try a slice then either give it away or portion it and put it in the freezer. Otherwise I go to town on it. I take treat yo self to a whole new level. Once it’s frozen Johnny takes a bit for his lunch each day. Although sometimes I even have to give away the frozen pieces because they taunt me! I’m a little bit ridiculous I know but whatever. Do what works I say.
