Just one or two ingredients for holiday fare

2016-12-21 06:02

Watermelon sorbet


1 seedless (if seeded - be patient) watermelon, peeled and cubed


• Arrange the watermelon cubes in an even layer on a baking tray and place in freezer. Freeze until the watermelon is solid, about two hours.

• Working in batches, transfer the watermelon cubes to a blender or food processor and puree until smooth.

• Divide the puree among two loaf pans (or put it all in one deep baking dish), packing it down as you add more on top.

• Put pans in freezer. Freeze until the sorbet is scoopable, 1 to 2 hours more.

• To serve, scoop the sorbet into dishes and eat immediately.

Two ingredient recipes.

Chocolate fudge


450g dark or white chocolate

One tin condensed milk.


Melt chocolate in microwave, heating half the amount for one minute then stir. Add the rest of the chocolate and keep stirring, in 10 seconds bursts until all is melted.

Stir in condensed milk until well mixed

Press fudge into a 20x20cm baking tin lined with baking paper and refrigerate until set.

To make it three ingredients - half a cup chopped walnuts pushed into the top of the fudge.

Energy bars


400 g pitted dates

420g oats and extra for coating


Place dates in food processor and process until a jam-like consistency - if too dry add a little hot water.

Add oats one cup at a time until mixture starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl.

Press mixture into 17x27cm tin lined with baking paper.

Sprinkle top with oats and freeze for 2 hours

Cut into fingers and roll into extra oats to coat.

3 small ripe bananas

3 eggs lightly beaten

(Proportion should be 1/3 mashed banana to 1 egg)


Mash bananas well

Cook 1-2 minutes and serve

N utella mousse


2 cups cream

1 cup Nutella

Beat the cream until light and fluffy. Add Nutella and continue to beat until well mixed.

Pour into individual serving bowls. Chill over night or at least six hours.

To add another ingredient - dissolve two teaspoons of instant coffee in a teaspoon of hot water and add to the mix. - Jenny Cheung, Kidspot Australia.
