Cocktail Friday: a Strawberry Daiquiri

Cocktail Friday with a strawberry Daiquiri

When we are talking about the Cocktail Friday at work, one of my colleagues always tells me that she drunk some Strawberry daiquiris on a vacation in Mexico. She really liked it a lot. So I thought I should really try this Strawberry Daiquiri for this Cocktail Friday. Continue reading “Cocktail Friday: a Strawberry Daiquiri”

Sunday Smoothie: Mango Pineapple Strawberry

Mango Pineapple strawberry smoothie

I could really use a good smoothie this morning. We went out for dinner last night with good friends. We went to a Japanese-all-you-can-eat-concept restaurant, called Asuka. The concept is simple and you always eat too much (oeps in this way I will never loose that extra kg which is still there from Ibiza;-). But the food is fine. I ate some Sushi, Sashimi and a lot of beef and chicken. The concept is nice because all 4 of us ordered what we like and we shared the different food with each other.
As usual we said to each other that we won’t make it too late this evening. Haha well like all the other times it didn’t work, because after leaving the restaurant, the first thing M. said was: some more drinks in another bar? haha off course we did. So too late in bed, a little bit too much alcohol and you could definitely use this Mango Pineapple Strawberry Smoothie. Read more about te recipe.

Sunday Smoothie: Banana Strawberry

I tasted a lot of smoothies the last couple of weeks, but it didn’t prevented me from getting an awful cold that I have since a few days.
But of course that’s not so strange. Fruit can help you to stay healthy, but it’s not some kind of miracle. But I still like to make smoothies so I definitely will keep the Sunday Smoothie serie.
This time we tested the Banana Strawberry Smoothie for Cakes and Pumps. This Banana Strawberry Smoothie is so easy to make. And the taste is great. Continue reading “Sunday Smoothie: Banana Strawberry”

Sunday Smoothie: Strawberry Rhubarb


We had a great weekend, on Friday and Saturday night we went to a festival called “Parkfeest Oosterhout”. Most artists on the festival are Dutch. Friday night was with cover bands and as closing act a couple of Dj’s with a 80’s – 90’s program. Yesterday was with Di-rect and Raccoon.You see them on every festival in Holland during summer, but who cares. Music isn’t the most important thing of the festival for me. With this “parkfeest” you always bump into old friends or people you haven’t seen for a while. The other side of a weekend like this is, that most of the time we don’t sleep enough,so every day we come too late out of bed. Not so good on Sunday Smoothie, where I mostly want to write a post for and another one for cakesandpumps. But I did it, only it’s a little late for the morning smoothie;-) haha you can try this one on another day then if you want. Read more for the recipe.

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”

Sunday Smoothie: Strawberry – Blueberry Smoothie

Strawberry-blueberry Smoothie

Sunday morning is a good day to drink some smoothies. I’m not such a fruit eater. It’s not that I don’t like fruit, but most of the time I just forget to eat it. I always buy our fruit at the supermarket, M. Loves fruit and also Larsman seems to have the genes of his father. It’s so funny when we have a Mango at home. Larsman walks to the mango all the time, and says mango in a very funny way. It’s a little bit difficult to pronounce the word, since he’s two year’s old-;). And the whole time he want’s to eat it.
So for me it’s good to try some smoothies or fruitshakes. They are healthy, with a lot of vitamines , that’s definitely something I can use these days. And they taste good! With cakes and pumps I force myself to eat more healthier food and of cours I love to share this recipe with you!
