Fruit Punch with Jelly| Summer Party Series

IMG_0349_editedThis is a easy refreshing drink that is great for Summer Party. It looks good if you have a glass jug pitcher. With your choice of your favorite carbonated drink (eg. Sprite or Club Soda etc), the fruits really bring out the fruity revitalizing of the whole drink and make it pleasantly satisfying.  

IMG_0357_editedYou can use a variety of fresh fruits you want. I used strawberries, blueberries, grapes, and mangos. It was really delicious!
IMG_0361_editedI like to make it extra special and adding some jelly topping to each cup and garnish them with mint leaves. Yummy!

To me, Indonesian Avocado Milkshake is like my childhood favorite drink. My mum was born in Indonesia as a Chinese- Indonesian. She was later married to my dad, who is a Singaporean and eventually moved to Singapore. 

Often when I travel to Indonesia to visit my relatives, the first thing I would order in any restaurant or eatery is Avocado Milkshake. It’s thick, creamy and full of goodness.

Homemade Soy Milk

Soy Milk thumbnail

My whole family loves to drink soy milk. In the past, I use to remember my mum often buy fresh soy milk packet in a clear plastic bag from a wet market and it was so good. I also heard from my sister that soy milk is really good for girls, I think what she meant was it boast one’s female hormones. Anyway, anyone can drink and should drink because it is damn delicious and nutritious. Just remember to get non-GMO soy beans. Those made from GMO crops are nasty, and you want to avoid that.

Singapore is also known for its beancurd. There are two main kinds of bean curd. One is the traditional version (which is much known in world wide), and the other one is the Lao-Ban version. I do love both. The traditional one taste light and bland which is great for breakfast or a light snack, while the Lao-Ban version taste much more sweet and creamy which is great for dessert. Both texture wise are very much differ too. Traditional one have a silken-tofu like texture while Lao-Ban have a more pudding like texture. Some love the traditional, some love the Lao-Ban style one. I may (been thinking) create a recipe for one of these beancurd soon. But I just dislike the idea of using instant jelly powder for Lao-Ban version as it is made up from carrageenan which have linked to some kind of cancer. Meh….. I may try it with agar agar which is a much better substitute and agar agar aids our digestive system!
