    do you post nutrition info on any of your recipes

    • adriana February 13, 2013 at 4:26 am Reply

      I don’t post the nutrition facts of my recipe. Everything I make is with natural, raw ingredients, very low in carbs, grain free and always refined sugar free.

    Wow, this looks amazing! I’ve just found your website and everything looks sooo good.

    One question about hazelnut butter, though. I make my own almond butter from raw almonds. What is your opinion on roasting nuts, since I see your hazelnut butter is not raw? I’ve read that roasting nuts makes them ”toxic”?

    • adriana March 11, 2013 at 9:50 am Reply

      In order to make butter out of the hazelnuts you need to remove the skin and to remove the skin you need to roast the nuts for a few minutes. Roasting also changes the flavor a bit. I tried making hazelnut butter with the skin on and using raw hazelnuts and it never turned into a smooth butter. I am not very familiar with the toxicity of nuts when roasted and I will have to research the subject because I think the toxic varies with the type of nut also.

        I make all my nut (almond, peanut, coconut) butters raw, since I read you shouldn’t roast nuts. However, when I made raw hazelnut butter it was a bit bitter and raw sunflower seed butter even more so. I hope you make a post about what you find out!

    hi! how many does this serve and how long will it last in freezer before serving?

    • adriana November 21, 2013 at 9:47 am Reply

      Serves 10+ people. Should last in the freezer for at least 1 month.

  6. Jo November 26, 2013 at 8:46 am Reply

    Do you take it directly from the freezer to serving? Or should it sit out a little before serving?

    • adriana November 26, 2013 at 10:12 am Reply

      It should be soft enough when taken out from the freezer or you can wait 5-10 minutes if you prefer.

    Hi there! Your recipe looks great. Just wanted to pass along that dairy is not allowed in the paleo diet, so you would need to sub something for the yogurt. I noticed you used cream cheese and yogurt in other “paleo” recipes as well. Fingers crossed subbing those ingredients won’t change the flavors/textures too much.

    Hello, I wonder about the vanilla, is it powder or extract? Thanks a lot!

    • adriana June 3, 2014 at 1:07 pm Reply

      Fabiana, use vanilla extract.
