• Raspberry Grapefruit Lemonade

    For a refreshing and tasty drink, opt for the lemonade. I tried this one during summer combining raspberry and grapefruit and really enjoyed it! For the sparkling water, we have a sodastream at home, means that we make our own, but you can use the one you are used to (select one not too much salty). I have added some white beet sugar but you can also use superfine sugar (same quantity) or brown sugar (1 teaspoon). Ingredients for 2 glasses: 20 raspberries 1 grapefruit 1 glass sparkling water 1 tablespoon sugar Recipe: Squeeze the grapefruit and add it in a blender with 15 raspberries and the sugar. Mix until…

    Winter does not have so many fruits but one of them can be ate in so many ways.

  • Strawberries Milkshake

    Easy and quick to realise, milkshakes are a good way to eat fruits and dairy produces.

Blend for 30-40 seconds until everything is combined. Serve in glasses and drink! For foodies, you can also use whipped cream for topping and fresh fruits chopped…

  • Vegan Matcha Maleines

    I am not Vegan but I enjoy trying new recipes and tastes. So I looked for a Vegan recipe with Matcha and found one for a cake. I changed some of the proportions and ingredients a few times before finding the best way to make it. For example, the original recipe is sugar free so I added some. As you will see in the pictures, I tried with milk rice and sunflower oil, but let me advice you that it is not the better way to make it! Milk rice is tasteless and sunflower oil too strong. I changed it for coconut milk (sooo good) and grape seed oil (perfect…
