View Full Version : Ani Phyo's Mango Cobbler-need some help
04-24-2008, 01:01 PM
I made this the other day for my son who came to help me clean up the yard. We both loved it. here are my questions:
1. Can I freeze the leftovers? I'm trying to limit raw desserts to maybe once a week.
2. When making the syrup part, it calls for coconut oil, dates and water. When I processed those in my FP, the coconut oil hardened and I had to scrape it out of the bottom of the FP. So I think the syrup didn't turn out the way it was supposed to. Didn't matter we still ate it, but I'd like to know for next time what I did wrong.

were your dates right out of the fridge & water cold?
that cold be why.
I made this but made sure all were at room temp.

It must have been the water, that was cold.
ok, so everything at room temp next time.

Could it be that you are using coconut butter rather than oil? Oil is softer at room temperature. My sauce worked out with no adjustments. It's a great recipe, isn't it?

No its definitely oil according to the package anyways. Its solid at room temp however, and I had to put it in a bowl of hot water to get it to liquefy.
What about the freezing? Any ideas (she says as she eats yet another piece!)

Why limit yourself to one desert a week? A raw desert is 100 times healthier than what everyone else eats for meals. I often have a meal of raw ice cream every day or almost, and my body fat is at 10% (that's very low).
You don't need to limit yourself on the raw diet because everything you eat is what your body is meant to eat.

Not everyone can maintain a small size by eating whatever raw they might feel like. Or maybe we want to satisfy our hunger most of the time with greens and other whole foods and less treats...especially those of us who can overeat and think we want to eat treats all the time. I guess you have the opposite dilemma, raweater :-) I am curious to know how your weight gain is going and if you are a man or woman because I think it would be hard for a woman bulk up that much in muscle...(30 pounds total). Hope you aren't offended by me asking....

As far as the coconut oil, just make sure what you add it to is room temperature. As far as freezing, I would think that your fruit would turn soft when it started to thaw but I'm sure it would still tast great....the texture might just not be the same. With several of Ani's recipes I have cut them in half if I know I won't have alot of help eatingn them.
