Cocktail Friday: a Batida de Banana Coco

Batida de banana coco

Did you miss last week’s Cocktail Friday? It’s not you, just me. Last week I didn’t had time to write the post for cocktail Friday. But we tried the cocktail the day before and it was such a delicious cocktail, so I wrote an other post about it. You can find last week’s Cocktail Friday: Cloud 9 here.
For today we fly to the other side of the world, to Brazil again. Remember the Caipirinha that we made a couple of weeks ago? Today we made a Batida de Banana Coco. Continue reading “Cocktail Friday: a Batida de Banana Coco”

Cocktail Friday: a Pina Colada

It’s weeeeeeeeeekend and Cocktail Friday again. This time I have chosen a Pina Colada .
I love those Pina Coladas! And not the ready made Pina Coladas out of a bottle, but selfmade Pina Cola. When I’m writing this blog, I’m zipping on the Pina Cola that I just photographed for this Blog post. Normally we always pretaste the cocktails the night before Cocktail Friday, but yesterday we were very busy with working on my atelier. So I had to taste this one on my own tonight. But this is a golden oldie for us, so I know allready that this one is one of M.’s favourites too. Read more for the Recipe. Continue reading “Cocktail Friday: a Pina Colada”

Sunday Smoothie: Mango Coconut Milk with lemon


The habit of making smoothies every Sunday, for 8 weeks now, feels very good. Last couple of weeks we had a lot of social events like dinners and parties on saturdays. And most of the time we say to each other that we will go home early and don’t drink too much;-). Mostly with the drinks we are doing fine, at least one of us has to drive home, and the other one doesn’t want to be a total wreck the next day. Haha but specially the late nights are a real killjoy on Sunday. So drinking Smoothies makes me feel better and more healthy and makes me forget my low energy levels. And if the smoothies are so nice as today’s Sunday Smoothie, Yummie. Read further about this smoothie. Continue reading “Sunday Smoothie: Mango Coconut Milk with lemon”

Sunday Smoothie: Strawberry Colada

Sunday Smoothie time again, this time we have a Strawberry Colada smoothie.

I always call all the mixes with fruit a smoothie, but since I’m searching for smoothies for my blogs I found out that you have different kind of fruit drinks.

A smoothie is mostly frozen fruit with yoghurt, cream, milk, custard or mascarpone added. It looks like a milkshake and it’s nice to drink it cold. Continue reading “Sunday Smoothie: Strawberry Colada”
