These might seem a little more fiddly than some of the other recipes, but I promise you they are delightful-looking dessert and truly worth it.

delightful-looking dessert


To make the pod base: Place all base ingredients in a food processor or Thermomix. Roughly belnd everything together until it resembles a crumble mixture (TM speed 6.2 minutes). Roll into small balls, then like you are making a pinch pot, use your thumb and fingers to make a small well in each ball. Refrigerate while making the coconut cream.

To make the whipped coconut cream, scoop out the top level of thickened coconut cream from the tin into a glass of bowl. Add beetroot powder, coconut paste and orange oil, then whip with hand mixer for a few minutes. When it starts to thicken, add maple syrup and salt and whip for a short blast to mix in. Refrigerate for 20 minutes, then add a dollop to your pods. Return the pods to the fridge to set for 45 minutes to an hour.

NOTES

The pod mixture will stick to your hands a little, so after making a few pods give them a wash to make them easier to handle.

The Year of the Yin Metal Ox

by Tahnee McCrossin February 12, 2021

In Chinese folklore, the story of the Ox is that she was a star, removed from the heavens by the gods and goddesses to help humans. The gods and goddesses told Ox to help humans cultivate enough food to eat every three days - but Ox got muddled and told the humans she was here to help them eat three times a day - oops! For that reason, Ox has been helping humans by working all day long to ensure we produce enough food to eat regular meals.
