Lime in the Coconut

I'm back from the Bay Islands, and had an absolutely amazing time - many fantastic adventures... Rum was the drink of choice, so I enjoyed lots of delicious fruity cocktails made with Flor De CaƱa. Danny at West Peak Inn scored some fresh coconuts for us - a total treat. This was my favourite way to enjoy one of these:

  • have someone experienced with machetes and coconuts hack one of these open for you. A hole about the size of a quarter in one end is all you need.
  • drink about 1/3 of the milk with a straw
  • pour in 1-2 shots of white rum
  • fill the rest with fresh sweetened lime juice (or the juice of a lime and simple syrup or other sweetener)
  • enjoy :-)

(Healthy) Dark Rum Walnut Brownies


Dark Rum Walnut Brownies: Bittersweet dark nutty fruity chocolaty bliss

Time for some awesome rich chocolaty Dark Rum Walnut Brownies!

Compared to traditional brownies (that generally have a lot of butter/oil, refined wheat flour, refined sugar...) these are healthy. You still need fat and sugar to make a really good brownie - and these definitely have fat and sugar. The difference is this: these have more healthy fats (like egg yolks and omega3-rich walnuts) and healthier sugars (from mineral and fiber-rich dried fruits like prunes). They are also packed with healthy dark chocolate.
