Homemade Water Chestnut and Sugar Cane Drink

“The natural thirst quencher to rehydrate body, flavourful and healthily”

Cooked some healthy drinks for the hot weekend, to quench our thirst as well as reduce heatiness in the body.

Homemade version of water chestnet and sugar cane drink has its natural and smooth mouthfeel that sooths the throat wonderfully. This homemade drink is also better in taste, not too strong flavour since it’s without additional flavouring. Simply loved its mild flavour, soothing and cooling effects. read 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. read 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.

Serves 2 large glasses
Ingredients:
2 honey mangoes, chilled and peeled
1 cup of plain yogurt (low-fat)
2 tablespoons of breakfast cereal (eg honey stars or cornflakes), lightly crushed
2 tablespoons of honey
