Mr A & I took the plunge and bought the new Thermomix a couple of weeks ago. Due to huge demand, it took 5 weeks for it to be delivered, but we just received it this Saturday and I’m so excited!
I’m pretty late to the party I’ll admit. I only heard about them through friends who raved about owning one.
It seemed like every time I asked someone for a recipe, they replied with, ‘Ohhhh it’s a Thermomix recipe sorry!’
After hosting a demonstration we were sold though. It truly is q great machine, and after receiving it on Saturday I made all these things on Sunday;
- Pizza sauce
- Pizza base
- Pizza – duh! :)
- Flourless chocolate cake
- Bliss Balls
- Bacon & mushroom risotto
I was in the kitchen for about an hr making all these things .. Previously that was unheard of!
My favourite thing from the first day with our Thermomix was the bliss balls though. They are SO good – tiny morsels of amazingness. You could make them with a blender too, so give them a whirl because I promise you won’t be disappointed! They’ll get rid of that sweet craving after dinner, if you’re like me that is!
Guilt Free Chocolate Bliss Balls
20g Sunflower Seeds
60g Sultanas / Raisins
1 TSP Vanilla Essence
2 TBS Cocoa Powder
Mix all ingredients for 30 secs / Speed 9 and roll into small balls. Coat in desiccated coconut – I find it easier to put a handful of coconut in a ziplock bag and roll 5-6 balls at once. Pop them in the fridge, and then hide from everyone else, because they’re delicious and will quickly get demolished!
