The latest buzz word in the “superfoods world” is the Matcha Green Tea. All the cafe menus have Matcha based beverage these days including star bucks, and I felt where ever I go, and whatever I read, it was all about matcha and matcha. So I decided to write about it and try a simple latte with the same. Here comes my Creamy Matcha Latte.

Staying hydrated is very essential and it’s vital for our health. During summer keeping ourselves hydrated become more and more important. Nothing can beat water, the elixir of life.

The next recipe I am going to share in the series of special summer drinks is the humble Shikanji. Shikanji is a simple Indian style lemonade/limeade. It’s a sweet and spicy drink prepared with lemon/lime. It is known by different names like Shikanjvi, shikanjbi, shikanjbeen and also Nimbu Paani which means lemon water in Hindi.
I am going to share one more mango recipe today, but this time it is with green mangoes. It is the traditional drink – Aam Panna. This khatta-meeta / sweet and sour mango juice is loaded with flavors, and sure it is a fantastic relish. I won’t call mine as an authentic recipe, as I went with a different spice mix that we prefer. So here comes my version of Aam Panna. :-)
Glad to be back in my space, after a short break. Today I am going to share a special summer recipe – crisp, delicious and refreshing – Lemon Curd Sharbat/sherbet with rose syrup.

As I mentioned in my Oats Puda post, I am trying to incorporate oats into our daily meal and here is one such recipe that I tried recently in the oats challenge attempt. All smoothies are pretty much simple, so I don’t want to repeat that again. :-) For the third day of “smoothies” theme, I presenting you the overnight oats smoothie with dates and flax meal.
Yesterday I posted a simple smoothie with fresh bananas and today’s smoothie is also simple but instead of fresh fruits, I choose frozen fruits. We love berry smoothie, but finding them year around is difficult. So I always have a frozen pack in handy so that I can whip up some easy smoothies, parfaits not only for breakfast but for snacks. This is a simple four-ingredient fix. Blend the berries along with yogurt, water, and vanilla essence and that’s it. A perfect, easy, grab and go breakfast is ready in no time.
