A tropical fruit smoothie with the goodness of hemp seeds. Hemp seeds provide an ideal ratio (~ 3:1) of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids.

Blogging Marathon# 46: Week 2/ Day 3 Theme: Lemon/ Lime Recipes Dish: Agua de Papelon (Limeade with Panela/ Jaggery) For the final day of ‘Lemon/ Lime recipes’, I was thinking of making something sweet.

Apple-Orange Mocktail

Blogging Marathon# 41: Week 4/ Day 3 Theme: BM Pair (Sujatha Ram) Dish: Apple-Orange Mocktail For the final day of this month’s marathon, I have a very simple mocktail from Sujatha’s blog. I hardly ever make juices at home, I’m just too lazy to make them. Because it takes quite a bit of effort to make these juices and takes mere seconds to finish them. Sigh!! Its better for everyone to just eat their fruits than drink them. This is totally my personal opinion, no offense meant to anyone.
