If your answer is no, try it. I have yet to find a place here in NYC where I can have Açaí bowl (with bananas and granola). Delicious, filling, energizing and super refreshing. Meanwhile, I'm content with my smoothies.
5 strawberries cut in halves 1/2 banana (frozen is better!) 1 pack of Açaí (I get these at Wholefoods) 1 1/4 cup of soy milk
(yes, i know, my straws are a disgrace... and yes, i know...i don't have a proper smoothie cup...)
Well, give it a go!
update 7/29: The Açaí I used is blended with Guaraná. You can also get it without.
Swiss Lemonade (Limonada Suíça) is what we call it in Bra(s)il. Yes, it's brazilian, but called swiss. Go figure.
For your weekend | Try it!
4 limes condensed milk 3 cups of cold water ice 1) Cut off the ends of the limes and then cut them in quarters. Make sure to cut off the white parts inside. 2) Blend the limes, condensed milk (I like to add half a can - but that's up to you. It gets thicker and sweeter the more you add in.), and 1 cup of water. 3) Pour the liquid through a strainer into a pitcher. Press the pulp with spoon to get the most out of it. Keep the pulp. 4) Pour the liquid back into the blender and add 2 cups of water. Blend! 5) Pour the lemonade over ice into serving cups. Sprinkle a bit of the pulp and ta-da! You made a delicious, refreshing brazilian swiss lemonade! Enjoy. Have a nice weekend!
New additions to my dear Dot Series. The Dotted (salt and pepper) Shakers are very simple and delicate. I purposely kept it (the design) very minimal so it goes well with any other table ware. If you're not a shaker user, I suggest using them as decoration pieces. They look quite beautiful on the shelf next to books, candles, vases, photo frames...
