SHOTS OF GREENS FOR ST.PATTY’S DAY

Whether it’s St. Patrick Day or not, I like to go green sometimes with my morning beverage. And, it was no different this morn. I allowed my standing blender to do the task in pureeing kale, kiwi, lime juice and chops of star apple.(Caribbean).

With a splash of cold water, all I needed was to let my faithful blender do the talking. And talk it didĀ  and produced this virtuous and refreshing shots. Shots that any Irish bloke or lass would like.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone.

 

SHOTS OF CULINARY REDEMPTION #KIWI/KALE/STAR FRUIT SMOOTHIE

I admit; I have been quite a naughty girl over the week-end. Yes, I fell off the ‘wagon’ as I sometimes do. I indulged in some calorie-laden, mouth-watering type of goodies. Oh, they were sinfully delicious. After all, I’m human and what’s life without a little salty, sweet and fried delights? Thinking about them sets my palate on overdrive. Oh, I’ve to control myself!

Thank goodness I have redemption. I have options. I do try to be a person of balance. So, after I gave a dear heart a jolt of morning activity, I grabbed my faithful blender. I added kiwis (2), a handful of kale and a chopped star fruit with a splash of water and lime juice and pulsed my way to a smooth tropical finish.

My fiber-rich and vitamin-laden fruits brought the natural sugars to my shots of smoothie. I know that my digestive system will be ecstatic for the rest of the day.

Guys, there’s always room for redemption. Bottoms up!!

THE TROPICS WAS ON MY MIND #STAR FRUIT AND KIWI

Maybe, it was the sizzling temperatures on the outskirts, but, the tropics was upfront and center on my mind. I wanted to start my day just right so I figured what better way to do so than with a few fruits of the tropics. Star fruits and kiwis are filled with great vitamin C and other nutrients that are beneficial to the body.

A fruit plate was in the works. To go with my tropical delights, I also tossed in a few slices of strawberries and gala apples for added texture and color. With a little squeeze of fresh lemon juiceĀ  my refreshing fruit plate was ready for consumption.
