Happy Tuesday all! Today’s recipe is No Bake Coconut Milk Chocolate Sweets – indulgent and easy to make treat especially for those of you who love coconut! There’s lots of it! It’s actually the main ingredient. 🙂
I didn’t add any sugar but there’s a bit of milk chocolate in there, not that much really. Also I used coconut oil (quite a lot of it) for even more intense coconut flavour. And for helping these sweets to stick together. The almonds I put are more like a decoration but they gave a nice crunch to the sweets. Really basic recipe but sooo delicious. It reminded me of my favourite chocolates (Lindt, the coconut bonbons), mine tasted as good as them, I promise!
Here’s how to make these No Bake Coconut Milk Chocolate Sweets

I can’t believe Easter is over and there’s another week off coming that I need to start planning and organising about. I’m talking about the Summer half-term. I do hope the weather will be much better than it is now so we could spend more time outside. And April is almost gone! Seriously? The time does fly. Sometimes I just wish to stop that ( especially the fact that the kids are growing so fast, too fast I’d say). But this is what life is bout, right! OK, I think I need to move back to the recipe now.
This is one of the laziest and tastiest sweets I’ve made. I’m not really into baking and making sweets (on the other side I bake every week), but as we all have sweet tooth I have to make sweet stuff too. Baking is quite precise, isn’t it. Well, I’m the opposite. That’s why baking and me don’t get along (sometimes). 🙂
I hope you enjoy this recipe! Stay tuned for more simple and delicious recipes!
Happy Wednesday guys! The recipe of the day is Shredded Goose & Shrimp Sandwich!
Let me tell you, these sandwiches are absolutely amazing, not really on the healthy side, but definitely worth every single bite. They’re in my top 10 comfort food list. I just love sandwiches like these – loaded with lots of cheese, fresh and crunchy salad, shrimp and tasty goose!
I would’ve probably used the goose only but then I found some shrimp hidden in my fridge and really felt like having shrimp. So I decided to combine goose and shrimp in this succulent sandwich. What a great idea it was! 🙂 I buttered the bread and made it nice and crunchy. All the ingredients though are quite filling so a half of these was more than enough for me. Well, I saved my other half for the next day. 🙂 And of course I ate these beauties with lots of hot sauce. For some reason, I always use hot sauce on shrimp and meat. It jus goes perfect – spicy and simply delicious!
I rarely make roasted goose but it’s definitely one of my favourite food to roast. 🙂 I mean, it’s so juicy and scrumptious and just irresistible. I used lots and lots of spices and some clementines that I used to stuff it and it turned so aromatic and bursting with flavour. The meat is soft and quite fatty, but that makes it super yummy. Oh, and a quick tip – save the goose fat! It makes wonders when added in your recipes. Try some roast pots with goose fat and you’ll know what I mean.
My point was, I actually used leftovers from the goose I had made. I also use these in pasta, wraps and salads. Goose is absolutely lovely! 🙂
Well, after that feast, you’ll probably need a good workout but it is all worth it! And I’d like to think this way – I’m actually burning calories while cooking so a delicious meal is well deserved. 🙂 Especially after a long and exhausting week! So why not make these like your perfect weekend treat! We all deserve it. 🙂 After all, you need some energy for the busy week ahead. 🙂
