Green Smoothie

As the onslaught of rich meals and desserts continues in this season, I like to balance out with light, healthier foods whenever possible. I don’t believe in any diets, or cutting out on any food groups. My strong philosophy towards eating has always been that of moderation – Consume  sensible portions of everything ( unless there are medical reasons not to do so), exercise at least three times a week, treat yourself kindly. And so after a night of Diwali party, its a good idea to detox, soothe  and energise yourself  with this  utterly delicious Green  Smoothie  the next day! 🙂

In my mind, it had got to be something truly exotic, imported and awfully expensive, till I decided to dig a little deeper ( believe me, I didn’t have to go far!). And ladies and gentlemen, this is my grand discovery – Clitoria ternatea, also known as Aparajita, Butterfly pea, Asian pigeonwings or Blue pea , is a flowering plant that bears white and blue flowers. It’s a commonly growing creeper in India ( and in some South East Asian countries) in our gardens and in the wild too!! Its been right here all my life and I just noticed, oh well, better late than never! 🙂

Fruity Summer Coolers

Fruity Summer Coolers

Summer is beating down upon us, hot and strong! I have pitchers of lassi, iced tea and lemonade  which work really well for the adults at home. But the kid and his little friends are forever tempted by all the artificially coloured vitamin waters, sugary fruit juices. Ugghhhhh!! Had to come up with my own brand of soft drinks, colourful and delicious enough, to entice them….. Ergo these Fruity Summer Coolers!
