  • I’ve been reading such a lot about raw foods. My husband does all the cooking now, but I still organise the menu, even though he does all the cooking I don’t think he realises how many raw foods we are now eating. We’ll definitely be giving this recipe a try, but I’m going to have to decide on a substitute for the pine nuts, they are just too expensive for us.

  • This looks special enough for a dinner party. I love that it doesn’t contain cream cheese, but looks so decadent. We love lemon flavour and I will definitely try this. Can I use normal coconut from the supermarket?
