It’s my first installment for Filipino Food Month! And in keeping with my birthday theme, we’re having dessert first.
This is a popular Filipino dessert, and it couldn’t be easier to make. Really, there’s not much you can screw up. It tastes amazing, and you only need 4 ingredients: Mangoes (the yellow ones, please), graham crackers, heavy cream, and sweetened condensed milk. And since it’s built around fruit, it’s totally healthy for you! (cough cough… )
Well, that’s a mouthful! In the best kind of way. I just made these and they are ridiculously good, so I just had to share.
If you are absolutely done making Christmas cookies this year (and really, I won’t blame you. It’s only 5 days away!!) these would also make excellent cookies for a New Year’s party.
What I love about these cookies is that they’re still festive while being significantly different (and much less sweet) than most Christmas cookies. (more…)
I’m going to give you a heads-up and let you know this post is going to be a bit long.
Also, you’re probably going to think that I’m totally crazy when I tell you what’s in these cupcakes. But, trust me, you’d never know these are healthy.
I know. Some of you are thinking of clicking away from this post right now. Healthy cupcakes? Who needs those? But I worked really hard to find & develop a recipe that doesn’t taste healthy. One of the things that makes these cupcakes better than most is that there are far less refined ingredients than you’d usually find. In fact, the bulk of these cupcakes are made with whole foods.
How the heck did it get to be Wednesday already? Good grief. And don’t get me started about how it’s already October.
Anyway, I suppose that’s neither here nor there. What’s important is cupcakes. These were cupcakes I made for Little Man’s birthday party. I still have tons of recipes to share from that, so I’m just going to keep plowing through. Whether you like it or not.
I adapted this recipe slightly from a Nourishing Meals recipe (no longer available), which was adapted from another recipe. Also, I took no pictures except the final product, so apologies on that.
This recipe is gluten-free, which makes it susceptible to drying out. For that reason, I made these only a few hours before the party. If you need to store these longer, you’ll need to freeze them.
