V-Day Special – Romantic Pinkie Dragon Fruit Juice

“If you aren’t a alcohol drinker, this healthy & low-fat romantic pink fruit smoothie should be your top option for this coming V-Day.”

I had this similar fruit juice smoothie at the Golden Shoe hawker centre at Raffles Place. Its unusual flavor wasn’t that impressive when I first tasted it, but it didn’t stop me from giving it a second try since my close colleague had constantly reminded me how delicious was this special fruit juice. Ok, I finally agreed with her and started liking it more and more after a few tries. It is priced at $2.20 per big cup, and this considers a very good price for a superior type of fruit juice selling at Raffles Place district. However, it is still not that economical to have a few dollars beverage on daily basis when I can simply drink some kinds of tea or coffee beverages provided by my office (smile). Oh well, I made this by myself at home now. I did not want to deliberately buy so many different kinds of fruit just for this, but it happened that I had given a big basket of fruits hamper as my get-well-soon gift after my surgery treatment. I, then, had most of the fruits I needed to make this beverage. So, here it is to be shared in my blog, especially V-Day is just next month!

Ok.. This is very simple to make, what you need to have is a blender for the following recipe. But, not sure why, my fruit juice is not as strong and sweet taste as the one I have tasted from the store. Are some kinds of fruit essence or sweetener added into the juice? Or is it simply due to the sweetness of the fruits used? I am not quite sure though. More

Iced Chrysanthemum and Ginseng Herbal Tea (洋参菊花茶)

“Warm aromatic Chrysanthemum tea to warm your hands and heart in the cold days, or a chilled glass to quench your thirst in the summer. Either way, this herbal tea is always the best drink to be enjoyed, anytime.”

Light, aromatic, and very simple, this herbal beverage makes a great accompaniment to any food, e.g. Chinese Dim Sum, stir fry, and even deep fry!

Its delicate floral aroma makes it easy to drink regularly. Chinese believes its benefits in reducing body heat as well as its contribution to clear vision. An addition of tiny ginseng root (洋参须) to Chrysanthemum tea not only doubles the cooling effect to our body system and many more nutritional values, it adds extra fragrance and flavor resulting in a herbal-inspired taste in the palate.

Luo Han Guo Chinese Herbal Tea (罗汉果凉茶)

“Fruit of Medicine, the natrual sweet fruit, for general well being, and some even claimed for its slimming effect, with regular consumption of it.”

 Luohan guo (Medicine term as Siraitia grosvenorii), in Chinese, 罗汉果, is a natural sweet fruit which often used as medicinal herbs by Chinese physician.

Luohan guo made into form of beverages, especially herbal tea, commonly sold in many Chinese herbal shops in Singapore. We do not usually use the raw green fruit to cook herbal tea, but get the dried one which has turned into dark brown fruit with hard thin shell. This low-caloric ‘fruit of medicine’ helps to detoxify body, and hence, some even claimed for its slimming effect, if consume it on regular basis. I drink it regularly mainly to maintain general health so as to eliminate summer heat in the body which may lead to feverish illnesses. More

Nata de Coco & Fruit Mixes in The Glass

“Just another way to serve your fruits, with Nata de Coco this time!”

I go supermarket almost every other day, to buy daily groceries and food as well as checking out information on any latest food or food-related products.

Nata de Coco – It might sound unfamiliar when first heard it, but you surely have tasted it before. In cafeteria, dessert store or elsewhere, just could not recall its name at times (smiling). It’s OK even if this is first time you heard about it.

Nata de Coco was originated from Philippines. It is chewy, juicy and slightly translucent, jelly-like coconut water (which has been fermented) in tiny cubes. Nata de Coco is high in dietary fiber. One of the best food/ snack for dieting, health conscious people like you and me, as it contains zero fat and cholesterol as well as low in calories. And, it’s tasty! Even though Nata de Coco is often sweetened, but its calories count only 60kcal per serving of generous portion. More

Mango Smoothie with Fresh Mango in Glass


“Healthy smoothie treats for everyone!”

This is a very simple homemade smoothie which doesn’t even need a blender to do the mixing. By all mean, go ahead with a blender, if it’s easier for you. The consistency between using a fork and into a blender differs a little. The later certainly yields more refine and smoother consistency.

This dessert takes less than 10 min to make 2 glasses. More
