Jakfruit Pudding and a Great Giveaway

You may remember my jackfruit spiel (which included an ice cream recipe featuring the fruit) not long ago, but for those of you who haven't, I loooove jackfruit! In fact, it's my favorite fruit of all (papaya is probably second). I'm so grateful to be able to get it dried (I get it from Vivapura) since I don't have access to the fresh stuff. 
I made this delicious pudding yesterday for breaky. I like to keep the other flavours pretty neutral to keep the jackfruit flavor (think juicy fruit gum) intact. 

Jackfruit Pudding

1/3 cup packed, dried jackfruit
1 cup water
1/2 cup frozen, chopped mango
1 frozen banana

Soak the dried fruit in the water for at least 6 hours - I soak mine over night.
Blend all ingredients together until smooth and creamy.
I sprinkled it with jarrah bee pollen.

Staying on a sweet note for another second... My bloggie friend, Averie is famous for her dessert balls. I had been wanting to make a few of her goodies for ages, and finally got around to it a few months ago (yes, I'm often waaay behind in blogging).

I chose her Almond Butter Cookies - totally awesome, although hers look much firmer than mine which turned out fairly gooey. Heck, I didn't care how firm they were because the taste and smooth texture was just to my liking! I enjoyed them straight outta the freezer like rich chewy fudge. While she added vegan chips, I added chunks of my raw chocolate from Just Desserts.

I also made some Coconut Almond Butter Balls, by simply adding shredded coconut to the almond butter dough. Yumm!

Onto the giveaway! Not actually by me this time, but by my sweetie, Philip! He's got 3 great gifts for one lucky winner. Check out the video here - I got to make a quick appearance.

Also, I've finally joined the Twitter phenomena... I'm probably the last person in North America to do so (my friends have been telling me to get it for years)... and have no idea what I'm doing, so if you have any tips, let me know! My screen name - @heathypace. I have one friend so far... 🙂 Hehehe

    I love your new blog design! And almond butter cookies sound delicious. I bet using cashew butter would be amazing as well.
