Soy Cream Cheese... Labni

This is sooooo easy,  i promise,  just give it a try, you will be forever grateful! An Easiyo maker is very useful for this recipe.

1 litre vitasoy milky soymilk (works the best)
2 Tbs of yoghurt (you can start it on full cream dairy yoghurt,  I did,  and then you can use your soy yoghurt for cultures from them on)

Shake together the milk and yoghurt in your easiyo container until well combined, pour boiling water into your easiyo as per instructions and let your yoghurt culture for about 8 hours or overnight.

Once you have set yoghurt you then pour it into a nut milk bag (or muslin cloth). Place it in a colander or hang out from a tap (that won't be turned on! ) and let it drip out all the liquid. This will take a further 6-8 hours. You now have cream cheese! !! Yummo!! You may now say THANKYOU!  YOU ARE WELCOME 😀

Creamy Brown Rice Cinnamon Pudding

Leftover rice makes fantastic rice pudding for breakfast, dessert,  or any time of the day.  Whipped up this morning in about 10 minutes.  Yum!

500ml milk of choice (I use vitasoy as it's creamy)
1/8 cup +1 loaded tsp cornflour
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
4 cups cooked brown rice

Blend all the ingredients together EXCEPT the rice. Place all ingredients into a saucepan combining well and let it reach a simmer. Keep on mixing while it lightly bubbles. Its fine when it reaches a thick creamy consistency...  5-10 minutes.

Eat it warm or let it set and enjoy cold.

Blessings from our table to your...  Melissa xxx
