Peanut Butter and Banana Fondue

It’s about time I got around to doing a sweet recipe. After a week of culinary trial and errors (and forgotten finished product photos!) I bring to you the Peanut Butter and Banana Fondue. This is so delicious I pretty much spooned it into my mouth as soon as the photographs were taken. You may also notice depleting fruit. Ahh such is the life of a food blogger! I imagine this would also work brilliantly as frosting for cakes but haven’t given it a try. Yummy yummy!

Steps

(Full instructions at the bottom of the page)

Add all ingredients except for the banana into a mixing bowl

Mix using an electric mixer, add mashed banana, mix until thickened.

Serve with chopped fruit and enjoy!

Café à l’Orange

4Ahh the inevitable aftermath of having a power outage. Make a caffeinated and highly delicious smoothie! After the power comes back on of course… though I kept the candles! Today I bring to you the Café à l’Orange, a smoothie based on the cocktail. Traditionally this would use an orange liqueur – I didn’t use one but I’m sure sloshing some Cointreau in there would make a very good smoothie indeed.
