Sharing is caring!

It’s time to start getting ready Skinnies!

With the ‘A Little Taste of Italy’ cookbook being released for pre-sale on Friday the 9th of November at 8pm SA time 🇮🇹️😍, we thought it would be a good time to release some of the spices and ingredients you will need for the new book! Scroll down for the list, you will find most are pretty standard pantry staples in a Skinnymixer pantry 😉

❓ Tuesday 6th of November – We will be asking the Skinnymixers group to vote which of the new #ALToIT recipes that they would like the shopping list revealed early for. This gives you a chance to have your say and be ready to cook on launch night!
