Hi buddies, that was a whole month away from blogging. All might be thinking, "Did i take a break???", not really , but i was forced to.A virus had entered my family, the great "Chicken Pox" and it caught hold of both my husband and daughter. First it was my husband, who was coming back from Kerala and after 2 weeks my daughter. Its is said that during medication, they should have only oil free - fat free foods, fruits, veggies and loads of water . Loads of fruits like watermelon, musambi, robesta bananas , tender coconut water...to keep the body cool. When i had in my childhood days.. we use used to have Kanji as lunch and dinner and then rest fruits.. and my daughter hates KANJI. Initially i prepared kanji only for my husband but later, my daughter suggested to use non-sick pan. After that i prepared all the normal foods, oil-free and bit tasty.I prepared chapathis, upma, all veg curries, idli, dosa, pathiri, puttu, no oil, no coconut and no milk products. Now that they all are fine and coming back to normal diet here i am back to blogging. I was so worried about the event that i was guest hosting "Dish it out- Light Dinners", as i was unable to reply to each of the participants. and to my surprise.. there was almost 95 entries when i checked..i was so very surprised.I was so happy and excited. Thanks for all the support and making it a success and just 4 more days to close my event. So buddies cook more and more tasty recipes and link it to "Light Dinners".. so let's keep cooking and blogging.
On this note i would love to post this simple recipe of Avocado.. i have had this smoothie many times from outside, but never tried it at home... and it was so easy to make and refreshing.. and all loved it..all might be knowing the goodness of this fruit/veggie.Here goes the recipe..
- Avocado - 1 ripe
- Milk - 500 ml, chilled
- Sugar - 2-3 Tbsp (adjust accordingly to your taste buds...)
- Ice cubes - 4
- Halve the avocado, discard the seed, and peel off the shell. Scoop the flesh from inside with a spoon.
- Put the scooped avocados, half the milk, and sugar in a blender or container of hand blender. Blend on high speed until smooth. Quickly blend in the remaining milk.
- Pour into 2 glasses , drop ice cubes and serve immediately, you might even need a spoon!
- You can also substitute sugar with honey..
