Blueberry Banana Smoothie

Last weekend, while visiting my family in the Czech Republic, we also spent some time in the forest near our cottage and we got some true blueberries! Me and my mum, as well as my sister and brother, we did about 1 liter of them and my mum gave me all as a kind of souvenir. ...more

Drink Pink

Benita, Your Vino ValetI love a good Rose'.  To me, they go perfectly with lots of foods and are even as great as your chosen sipping wine. I don't know that I am the only one but the first time I had a Rose' that wasn't White Zinfandel, I expected sweet and fruity.  Some are!  But they can also be bone dry, like the first one that I had ever tasted. ...more

Refreshing fruit puree lemonade

Last week was HOT here in Berlin, and no I will not complain about it. I've been moaning about cold weather the previous week so now that I got what I wanted I will make the most of it. And that means riding around Berlin on the bike in tank top and shorts seeking the cooling shade and stopping in front of the occasional underground parking lot driveway to enjoy the refreshing cold breeze. Welcome to summer in Europe with no air conditioning :)  ...more

Brazilian Lemonade

Summer is heating up and I'm still looking for ways to keep my cool out here in Georgia. And what better way than with this tropical sounding Brazilian Lemonade.Funny thing is, its called a lemonade, but there aren't any lemons in it. Nope, no lemons. Instead it's made with whole limes. Why they don't just call it Brazilian Limonade is beyond me.But I think it's because when you use the entire lime, peeling and all, you end up with a tart, citrusy drink that resembles a lemonade. Add in the sweetened condensed milk, and it reminds me a lot of a margarita mix, in texture and all limey tasting, just like a margarita....more
