FructMal Foodie; Cranberry Gin


During my FructMal journey I’ve learned the hard way that gin is the only alcoholic drink that doesn’t give me problems. Although I appreciate the natural flavors on the rocks, I found a bright red gin cocktail which looks so beautiful for Xmas. In the original recipe, the gin is infused with cranberries for a week to give it taste and color, and although the red berries are tolerated rather well in small amounts, you understand that soaking gin in 2 cups of fruit is not a good idea for us.

To make a festive FructMal cocktail, use unsweetened cranberry juice – check the label for ingredients -, top it with gin and ice and decorate with a rosemary sprig.

FructMal Foodie; Coconut Panna Cotta


When it’s served like this, we FructMal Foodies will soon forget that it isn’t chocolate pudding or ice cream; coconut panna cotta with passion fruit to serve 6;

Place 500 ml lactose free cream, 400 ml unsweetened coconut milk, 4 tbs rice syrup and scraped seeds of 1 vanilla pod in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Once boiling, add 3/4 ts agar agar, turn down the heat, stir until dissolved and then pour the mixture into square moulds. Place in the fridge for at least 2 hours until firm with a slight wobble, serve on a slate and decorate with the pulp of 2 passion fruits and mint. Decorate with a FructMal safe cookie and a good espresso on the side.
