10 fruity recipes to make in march

My soul does a little happy dance as the last official day of summer arrives and we move into March and early autumn. Its my favourite time of year hands down. I prefer April as it gets even cooler and the light softens as the days get shorter. I start dreaming about more robust dishes but still like to take full advantage of the last bit of decent fruit in season, like plums, mangos, passion fruit and pomegranates. I’ve been blogging for so many years now and thought it a good idea to bring some of my favourite recipes back into the limelight each month. I tasted them so I know they are the best of the bunch. I’m constantly reminded how our lives work in cycles and for me eating with the seasons is the strongest affiliation I have to this. 

Here are 10 of my favourite recipes to eat in March (if you live in the Southern hemisphere that is): Continue Reading →

Summer has hit Cape Town with full force and I love a fruity iced tea to help me through the hot days. As much as I love fruit juice, I rarely drink it. Loaded with sugar and calories, I prefer iced tea instead. I love my Rooibos iced tea with honey, ginger mint and lemon which can be made with few calories, and I pretty much have a jug of this at all times in my fridge. I also prefer to make my own. Abundantly cheaper and sans all the preservatives and colorants, its the only way forward for me.

I have discovered that apple juice is a fabulous way to sweeten ice tea, it also adds a lovely fruity dimension. For this variation, I wanted some tropical flavour too, so added passion fruit pulp to the mix. Garnished with a few sprigs of mint, and poured over a tall glass loaded with ice, it makes a very refreshing drink. Continue Reading →
