Banana Sushi

This is just simple and fun…
Finding healthy snacks that kids actually want to eat can be a hard work.

As much as we want them to snack on fruits and veggies, getting them away from chocolate and sweets is easier said than done!
Banana Sushi is a fun way to get kids involved in making their own healthy snack.
The recipe really is so simple. Just peel a banana, add a “sticky” topping like melted chocolate or peanut butter and then add a favorite topping. Then cut into bite sized pieces!

I’ve used sesame seeds, sweets and shredded coconut, but you can get creative and use whatever you have at home.

Recipe of the best Chocolate i have tasted so far

I have tried quiet different chocolate sauce recipes, all of them were from scratch recipes. But this one has became the best chocolate i have tasted.

I made the chocolate sauce with chopped chocolate, but chocolate chips can really be used.

What i realised was the point where this recipe differ from other recipes i tried was using corn flour to thicken instead of flour. All the chocolate recipes i followed before called for thickening the sauce with flour. But this indulging recipe calls for cornflour (cornstarch). It is the uncommon ingredient used.

After making and tasting the chocolate, i realised that it was indulging, and from then i don’t know when i switch to making the recipe whenever i need or intend making chocolate.

    Orange lemon Shake-up

    Ramadan is coming very soon inshaAllah. I know you would need simple drinks during iftar. This one is a good example.

    This drink would really help as it is made in only 2 steps, no blending required.

    It is made of 4 ingredients only. Orange, lemon, sugar and ice cubes. Ohh water is needed too, but ice and water are same thing huh?

    The citrus fruits; Orange and lemon, provide a fruity taste and that tangy taste of lemon that give it a kick!

    Don’t miss our Ramadan Online Cooking Classes. Contact 09035186172 for payment details.

    I used my mummies local squeezer in order to squeeze out the orange juice. Which is so simple to do in no time. Any squeezer can be used.

    All you need to do is squeeze some orange and lemon juice, place some ice cubes in a shaker , add the juices, top with water and shake very well.

    The shaking creates a fizzy environment on top of the shake up when poured in a cup, which gives a nice appearance.

    Lemon can be used only, to make this shake up. If so, it would be lemon shake up.

    Above is the jug i shaked inside. I poured the ice cubes inside as shown. Followed by the juices and water. Read the full recipe below:

    Ingredients

    3 Oranges

    1 Lemon

    ½ cup water

    Sugar to taste

    Ice cubes

    •Squeeze orange and lemon juice in a bowl.

    •In a shaker or a jug (or any hollow container with cover/lid), pour in the ice cubes.

    •Add the juices, add water.

    •Cover the container/shake and shake well.

    •Pour into cups and serve. Enjoy!

    Sweet Potato Salad

    Sweet potato is fat free and cholestrol free carbohydrate. Likewise lettuce is a good source of dietary fibre.

    Therefore, this salad is healthy and colourful, with a tangy taste of lemon. Though, most of the tanginess is balanced by the sweetness of the sweet potato.

    I observed that it really make sense when sweet potato is mixed with lemon. You can identify that when you tried this recipe, or my previous post on lemon potato rings.

    Thankfully if the sweet potato is really sweet. Then you are good to go.

    Use plenty of lettuce. Because lemon juice make lettuce to shrink by osmosis. At the end, the lettuce became smaller and less visible.
