Hello, lovely people.

Ramadan Kareem to everyone!

Hope everyone is doing well, even in this heat (The Summers in Dubai are on another level altogether)

With Ramadan going on, it is going to be really hard to maintain the weight (I hear ya!) Delicious and scrumptious iftar dinners and parties, inclusive of succulent biryanis and divine baklava cheesecakes and puddings and more, much more. Then there is Eid coming up- Need I say more 😀

So making a few small changes here and there could really  make a huge difference to our health and well-being and not put us in the negative spiral of food guilt.

This brings us to our RECIPE OF THE WEEK. NUTTER BUTTER NICE-CREAM. This quick and extremely easy dessert, satisfies the sweet tooth as well as the heart and you can eat it everyday without any guilt! Awesome or awesome? 🙂

So let’s  begin.

TOTAL TIME TO PREPARE: 1 1/2 hr.

Makes 1 box.

INGREDIENTS:

1/2 cup Frozen Banana

1 Frozen Pear-chopped

2 tbsp Organic Peanut Butter( You can make them at home, before hand, like the way I did in the images above, or you can also use the organic store bought variety, still tastes great)

2tbsp Organic Almond Butter

1/2 cup Chocolate Chips

Handful of Golden raisins

2 tsp Yoghurt

A medium sized rectangle box to store in.

HOW TO PREPARE:

Add in all the ingredients in a blender, except the raisins. Add only a handful of chocolate chips not all.

Blend really well, it would take some time. When you see a good creamy texture, that’s when its ready.

Pour the nice-cream in the box, add in the chocolate chips and raisins. Put it in the freezer.

Just before serving, remove it out for a few minutes for it to soften a bit. Enjoy with family and friends.

You can add in some creamy wafer biscuits or chocolate biscuit rolls for some crunch or even some nuts like walnuts or almonds.

Share this recipe with loved ones. Share your love, share your kindness.

PINK SORBET (SUMMER DESSERT)

Bonjour! Wonderful people.

How are you? Vous allez bien?

Well summer has arrived in Dubai. The super hot days are longer than the quiet peaceful nights. That time of the year has arrived when you just happen to stand out for a few minutes and the weather is trying its very best to make a  grilled hot kabab or tikka out of you. Its that kind of heat, where you just feel like your soul is melting away and you are left looking like a scarecrow. Damn, I painted some picture in your mind didn’t I ? 😀

On a more positive note, it is the time for ICE CREAM!  Repeat after me: I  scream, You scream, We all scream for…for …ICE CREAM! Yes  Bravo 🙂 No one is too old to say that!

So inspired from the colors of summer, our Recipe of the Day is PINK SORBET. A delicious fruity sorbet. The sorbet sold commercially has lots of sugar in it. The one we are making today is refined-sugar free, it has only pure, natural fruit sugar in it to sweeten it.

It’s a great treat for this boiling heat to cool down. It is great for those days when you just want to eat ice cream all day along, also a great accompaniment to your breakfasts/desserts. Yummy! So here we go.

TIME TO PREPARE: Half a day

Makes 1 box

INGREDIENTS:

Fresh Raspberries-15 Frozen for a few hours

Pear-2 small ones, chopped and frozen

Almonds-chopped

Water- 1 cup-per requirement

HOW TO PREPARE:

In a blender, blend together pear and raspberries until smooth. As shown in the images above. Keep in mind, you do have to blend well, so that would take some time. Add some water in to get a smoother texture.

But don’t add too much, you have to check continuously. Once you get a sorbet like texture, you can add in a few almonds, to give the sorbet a little crunch. Add in the sorbet in  a box, sprinkle in the almonds, cover the lid and freeze for 1 hour.

After 1 hour, remove it out and enjoy with family, friends or even just your own awesome self. Maybe you can try adding it on some hot pancakes, like below.

These are the famous and delicious 2 ingredient pancakes- just mashed bananas and eggs and some coconut oil and VOILA!

Enjoy my sugar-free sorbet. You can add your own toppings too if you like. I particularly think chocolate chips would go well too. Enjoy your summers and don’t forget to share your love. ❤ 🙂

Merci beaucoup et Salut! (thank you and bye 🙂 )
