No-vege salad anyone?

Hi all!

I thought I would share with you a fuss-free avocado & cherry tomatoes salad. It’s easy to whip up in the morning and it makes for a delicious breakfast to start the day.

Ingredients:

1. 1 ripe avocado

2. 4-5 cherry tomatoes

3. 1 small onion (optional)

4. Some parsley (optional)

5. Olive oil

6. Salt & pepper

Steps:

1. Dice the avocado, cherry tomatoes and onion.

2. Add some parsley leaves to the diced mixture.

3. Drizzle a small amount of olive oil over the mixture.

4. Add salt and pepper to taste.

And there you have it! An extremely quick, healthy and simple meal. Just remember, use a RIPE avocado. I made the mistake of using a semi-UNripe avocado since I could no longer resist the urge of making the salad. It was hard, let me tell you that. The avocado was so hard and crunchy that it hurts to bite into it. And honestly, the salad didn’t turn out all that good. Sooo, the moral of the story is to not be so greedy and wait for the avocado to ripen before doing anything else. Lol.

Hope you’ve a great time making it, and till the next time, bye!

Avocado milkshake

Hi all!

It has been a while since I’ve last updated. I finally managed to catch a breather since mid-terms has finally ended. Although finals is starting in about 3 weeks time. Sigh, #lifeofaunistudent. Anyway, I thought I would share this recipe even though it’s totally not fall appropriate. But hey, who cares! 😉 So let’s get right into it!

Ingredients:

1. 1 ripe avocado

2. 1/2 cup of milk

3. 1/4 cup of cold water

4. 1 tbsp of honey (or to taste)

5. A good handful of ice

Steps:

1. Simply throw everything into the blender and blend away!

And there you have it, a simple and refreshing milkshake done in no time! Please note that the more ice you add, the slushier and thicker the milkshake would get. Alternatively, you can also consider adding brown sugar or some pandan extract to the milkshake. It didn’t strike my fancy since I felt that it took the limelight away from the avocado. Instead, I prefer the subtle taste of honey mixed with the richness of the avocado as in this recipe. So feel free to adjust this recipe to your own preference!

And I’m off to enjoy the milkshake with some mango yogurt for my breakfast! Om nom nom nom! Till next time, bye!

Ingredients:

  • Chicken, shredded or sliced
  • Vegetables for salad making
  • Cherry tomatoes, sliced into halves
  • Olive oil
  • Dried italian herbs
  • Dried chilli flakes (optional)
  • Salt and pepper

1. Add a drizzle of olive oil over the greens, tomatoes and chicken.

2. Add a sprinkle of italian herbs, chilli flakes, salt and pepper, to taste.

3. Give everything a good mix and the salad is done! Bon appetit!

On a side note, it’s durian season!!!! WOO~~~ I’ve been gorging myself with so many durians recently that I’m in bliss~
