How to Make Karishe

Today I had some karishe and honey for breakfast and decided why not share with all of you the super easy way to make this delicious and healthy dessert!? so here goes..

for 500grams of Karishe you will only need:
1- 2kgs raw milk.
2- 0.5 teaspoon of calcium chloride or household citric acid both mixed with a little water.

1- Heat the milk to 95 degrees Celsius.
2- Add the Calcium Chloride or Citric Acid.
3- Lower heat and you will start seeing the Karishe pile up at the top just like the pic below

4- wait 30-60mins until all the Karishe is piled up and scoop out into a bowl.
5- Add as much of the left over liquid in the pot as you like (since some people prefer a more moist Karisher).

And that is it!!
super simple and easy :) 
You can top it off with some honey, sugar, jam, marmalade, really anything you want to satisfy your sweet tooth and enjoyyyyy

All Dairy All The Time

When in doubt...have some Labneh hehe That's kind of always been my moto when it comes to dairy and not being able to decide what to have whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner..Labneh is my go to product and never fails me.

My ultimate healthy yet extremely tasty dinner is a Labneh sandwich jam packed with all and every kind of vegetable you have available. You can't go wrong here..start off with brown Lebanese pita bread, spread a generous amount of labneh and any of your favorite veggies, mine usually includes: spring onions, raddish, lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, green peppers and mints with of course a dash of olive oil and a pinch of salt! Heavenly!! :)

Another simple yet diet friendly option, if you're laying off the carbs, is the awesome Labneh with mint and garlic. Use it as a dip with cucumbers and a side of some green tea and it will not disappoint!

I also use Labneh as an alternative in all my Aioli sauce needing foods, insead of the Mayo :) yup you can use it in almost everything requiring mayo and best of all guilt free! so labneh away everyone :)
