Fejoa ice cream recipe

Fejoa ice creamI know what you’re thinking – fejoa is really strong! But this is really really nice and creamy and the power of fejoa does not overpower.  It’s got good “balance”. :)

It’s simple to make and just like the flashy gourmet stuff you buy for over $10 a tub.

The recipe is easy and is done in two parts over two days.

Day 1


  • 1 and half cups fejoa pulp
  • 1 cup sugar

Soak 1 and half cups of fejoa pulp with 1 cup of sugar overnight in the fridge.

Day 2


  • 2 egg whites – beaten until stiff
  • 300 ml bottle of cream – whip it
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 beaten egg yolks
  1. fold all the ingredients together, with the fejoa mix, into a freezer proof container
  2. beat again when half frozen

It’s good, so so good…

#30DaysOfThankful Day 2: True love

The Princess Bride cartoonWhat’s the matter? Getting grossed out by my #30DaysOfThankfulness? Yes, it’s going to get quite soppy, get used to it or go read something else ;)

What more can I say about true love? I’m thankful to finally know true love! The fact it was right there all along is very random, but I guess all good things take time.

I’m thankful that I have someone who knows me, thinks about meme, respects me, is kind to me, says nice things to me, is thoughtful, considerate, sweet and protective. Who laughs at my dad’s jokes and makes plenty of his own, and for some reason finds me funny most of the time. Who makes me feel safe and loves me as much as I love him. I’ll never take any of it for granted.

Thank you <3

P.S. Yes, that’s Russell I’m talking about ;)

#30DaysOfThankful Day 1: Jesus died for me

Llanddwyn Isle CrossIt’s the number one thing I’m thankful for and have been since I was old enough to realise it.  I’ve never not believed, and only rarely have I ever felt a slight wobble in my faith.

Who else could ever love me so completely?

“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.” 1 John 1:7

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,f that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16

“For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins.” 1 Colossians 13-14

Nobody could ever love you or me so completely and I’ll give thanks daily until I’m in heaven too.
