Chocolate smoothie with hidden courgette

Really? A chocolate smoothie with COURGETTE! No, I didn’t go crazy. This taste sooo good! The frozen courgette with cacao creates a milkshake-like drink that I often make for my husband and myself in the afternoon as an extra energy boost.

Ginger and lemon shot

When visiting Sweden and Denmark for Christmas, I found small bottles with a ginger shot for sale everywhere. So fresh, and quickly I became a major consumer! Once back in Holland again, I missed my shots and decided to fix because my own. Today I therefore offer you a delicious ginger and lemon shot!

Fresh dessert with coconut milk, red berries and rose water

The inspiration for this dessert I had years ago in an Indonesian restaurant. I have never had it since but the tastebuds hadn’t forgotten about it. It was time to create a copy-cat from an old food memory, fresh dessert with coconut milk, red berries and rose water!

Refreshing icetea x 2

Even though the summer isn’t really that warm until now here in the Netherlands, its still too warm for me to drink my normal morning tea. So I came up with these refreshing icetea x 2  to drink instead. I prepare a new batch  every second day and can zip al day long.

October has for some days shown itself from its best side, the sun has been shining and the rain has stayed away. Last weekend I even was walking to the supermarket in just a t-shirt! But then again, the weather reminded us about the season and changed.
