Green juice

I seem to be having a particularly active day whereby a portion of it was spent at the gym. This inspired me to make the most of this day and dedicate it to my well-being. I did this by indulging in creating my very own green juice.
I generally steer clear from this sort of thing because they generally taste bland – or worse, so I decided that if I am going to be trying this out I might as well make it taste delicious so that I can drink it happily. 
This recipe produced a juice that was a perfect amount of sweet, and a perfect size for one person to drink.
Ingredients:

– two apples, washed and peeled

– half a cucumber, washed

– a teaspoon of lemon juice

– half a cup of cold water

– a teaspoon of desiccated coconut

Directions:

1. Roughly chop apples and cucumber and place into blender.

2. Add lemon juice and water.

3. Blend.

4. Pour into glass and sprinkle coconut over.

Benefits of the ingredients used:
– apples: rich in antioxidants 

– cucumbers: rehydrated your body and replenishes daily vitamins 

– lemon: contains nourishing elements such as vitamins C and A

– coconut: rich in minerals

All the more reason to try it out!

Enjoy!

Yum! Salad

I decided to have a delicious light salad for dinner this evening!


Ingredients:

-baby spinach leaves

-orange slices

-diced plums

-avocados

-feta cheese

-pink rose petals
I highly recommend a salad like this for a light dinner! It keeps you full and it’s pretty delicious!

Yum! Sushi

My sister and I decided to have sushi for lunch, so we hopped in the car and took a leisurely drive to the restaurant.

First, we ordered sweet corn cakes – they were sweet (of course) and deep fried. It came with a sweet sauce to add to the fried effect that the sweet corn cakes were. Little carrot sticks were used as a garnish.

We then ordered a sushi platter to share. This came really neatly plated, and the pink ginger added to the girly sushi date ambience we had going on. The platter included prawns, salmon roses and caviar. The wasabi and soy sauce always adds to flavour that wouldn’t otherwise be experienced with sushi on its own.

 

To end off, we ordered a tempura fried prawns sushi which included rice, sesame seeds, deep fried tempura prawns, spring onions, mayo and avocado topped with caviar. This was certainly the highlight of the sushi today!

 

Of course, my enjoyment of sushi has been reignited.

Yum! Choc sticks

Two things that work really well together: preztzels and chocolate! The combination is really good, and it’s something I usually take care to buy every now and then for a delicious treat! 

You can source them at your local vendor. They’re great to wrap up in a little pink bow, or even have in a little vase making it easier for someone to pick one out. 

Yum! Mini donuts

A few weeks ago, I was inspired to make mini donuts – or donutlings. It’s been a craze recently and what better thing to do than to attempt it oneself. I began with a basic donut recipe, and used circular objects in order to get them to be a genuine DIY in order to get the perfect size – ‘mini’.

Sugar and spice and all things nice were included in the mixture. The spice being nutmeg of course, to give it that lovely savoury donuty taste!

I fried the mini donuts in hot oil, all the while turning them to ensure that they were perfectly cooked outside as well as inside. After it was a golden brown, I took them out and left them to drain on draining paper.I melted Cadbury chocolate – the best tasting chocolate I’ve used thus far – and dipped the donuts in. Thereafter I proceeded to sprinkle hundreds and thousands over them for a pop of colour.

Lastly, owing to my adoration of flowers, more so edible flowers, I popped a few on several of the donuts to add a elegant touch to it.

And voila!
