Now, doesn’t that look tempting? A little piece of something sweet with a blueberry or two in the centre … it’s roughly based on a recipe I found online, but with a few major/minor changes, as this is [added] sugar free.

sharing recipes … coconut creamed rice

This is my favourite ‘sweets’ recipe at the moment … since going ‘added sugar-free’ for a few months now, I have struggled to find a dessert that is quick and easy to make (this is made in the microwave), sugar-free, and of course, delicious! Well, I struggle no longer, and here it is … It […]
