depending on the temperature, you might need more/less of the ingredients. in the winter, I find I need less arrowroot, as the arrowroot will make it more firm, the oil/butter more soft. feel free to play around with the ratios until it’s a consistency you like!


all the ingredients are fairly easy to find low/no plastic packaging, and organic fairtrade etc.
