JUICE ON THE HOUSE! #BEETROOT/CANTALOUPE

Once again, I partook of what Mother Nature bestowed upon me. I made sure to infuse the warm flavors of ginger root to my refreshing beetroot and cantaloupe juices. I can still taste that hint of ginger root on my tongue.

And because every day is a celebration, I decided to serve up same in champagne chutes. Bottoms up!!

THE POWER OF 2! #CANTALOUPE/LEMON

They say that the early bird catches the worm.So, I’m prepping for a refreshing cantaloupe juice in the morning. This nutritious fruit is touted as one of the world’s healthiest foods. It’s loaded with essential vitamin C, beta carotene, potassium and a host of other nutrients.

With just fresh lemon juice and cold water, I’ll be blending my way to a refreshing goodness. There’s no need to add sugar as this crop is packed with natural sugar to provide all the sweetness that I need.

Cheers to great health.

WATERMELON SHOTS + BITES

Look ye here! Look ye here! I’m having one of my best time ever! Decided to go once more with  one of the healthiest foods around. Based on nutritional factS, this fruit is loaded with great sources of  vitamin C, vitamin B6, magnesium, potassium and others.

Got a tad creative with my choice of serving. What do you know? Dusted off my cookie cutter and went to work. After all, this nifty little gadget needed to be put to work. Haven’t been baking cookies.

Went the virtuous route with my melon shots. All I needed was chunks of watermelon, freshly squeezed lime juice and a splash of water. Blended all ingredients in standing blender.

Didn’t have fresh mint on hand and decided to work with what I had. Grabbed a bit of my Italian parsley and garnish my shots of morning beverage. Once more, I was transported to in a very happy place.

CHEERS!!

 

 

 

 

 

I FORESEE JUICY AND SWEET MANGOES

I’m no psychic or no seer; but, one thing I know for sure is that these sturdy green mangoes will transform into amazingly, juicy and sweet specimens. It has occurred year after year. And when this period comes around, it brings back heartwarming memories within.

When the sweet and warm juices envelop the atmosphere, they entice not only humans, but, also the tweety birds and a few prancing squirrels. They  come and peck and devour as soon as these wholesome fruits mature.

I will be keeping an eagle’s eye out for nature’s bounties. These  are packed with vitamins, minerals, fibers and other nutrients. Moreover, I can’t wait to turn them into mouth-watering and spicy salsa paired with  protein dishes like seafood and poultry.

There is nothing like  refreshing mango-flavored beverages. Now, let me not forget those mango margaritas; maybe, a few frozen.  I will balance out the sweetness of the mangoes and add a hint of chili powder or salt on the rim.

I see spectacular culinary things in the near future.

 

 

 

FLUTES OF GOODNESS #WATERMELON DRINK

Studies have revealed that watermelon could be one of the world’s healthiest foods. It’s available year-round and is relatively inexpensive during its peak period (during the summer months).

Watermelon is  loaded with vitamin C and A. It has a great source of lycopene, potassium, magnesium, vitamins B1/B6 and other nutrients. Research has also found that the water-based fruit helps the lowering of blood pressure digits.

Turned a few chunks of mine into a refreshing drink. Added to standing blender:

  • chunks of watermelon
  • juice of lemon
  • cold water
  • dollop of honey

All ingredients were blended and the flutes show the refreshing results.

Salud!
