      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1. 1. Place Almonds into bowl and chop speed 8 - 2/3 Seconds - Be careful not to over blitz - you want some texture. SET ASIDE



    2. Zest 1 half of a lemon and place into bowl - Blitz on speed 9 for 10 seconds ( I prefer to use my hand held zester for this , but this works also ) 



    3. Add Apricots and Papaya CHOP Approx 5 seconds on speed 7 - You want bits not mush so watch this step 



    4. Add Cream Cheese and blend on speed 5/6 for 10 seconds until all combined. 



    5. Place cream cheese mixture onto a peice of cling film and wrap &  roll to shape your log - Once rolled, place almonds onto a plate and gently roll your log in the almonds covering it - Place onto a serving plate and eat !

This recipe can be made exacty the same way in both TM31 and Model5. Ingredients do not need to be exact, more apricot, or Lemon works either way. Its a handful of this, handful of that type recipe. 

You can also dice the fruit, set aside - add the cream cheese blend and then readd the fruit. Either way has worked for me.

    This was so simple, and delicious that I wouldnt ever consider buying similar cheeses again. I didnt have any Papaya, but used extra apricot and it was lovely. Might consider using other dried fruits such as pineapple as a variation. It will be a good standy by for a fast but yummy snack when people drop in, as ingredients can be kept as regular pantry staples.
