Mango Blueberry Smoothie

Frozen fruit is great. It is picked and quickly frozen at the pick of its time, so it is ripe and full of nutrients. Freezing is also the best way of preserving produce when done correctly, as it needs no added sugars to preserve and the nutrients loss is rather low. This time we Foodiemonday people are back with amazing theme #FilmyFoodies. And for this I chose the theme with this movie called #Chinikum considering the less sugar recipe. which is chinikum smoothie. And this smoothie is made with mangoes and blueberry. 

To make this Mango Blueberry Smoothie we used frozen mango chunks and frozen forest blueberries, added some banana and plant-based yogurt and blended well. You can blend everything in one go, or separately the light and dark mixture for a dramatic effect!!!


a handful of frozen mango chunks
1 ripe banana
2 tablespoons of frozen blueberries
1/2 cup of yogurt


1. In a blender add a splash of water and yogurt, One banana and mango chunks. Blend and pour into a tall glass.

2. To your blender cup, add in another splash of water, the rest of the yogurt, a frozen blueberries. Blend and pour in the glass on top of the mango mixture.

Its a ground Japanese green tea. The matcha tea latte is totally different in taste for me. Love the color of this latte.

I am not a tea lover, I am crazy about coffee. This tea flavor is amazingly different for me when I tried it. This tea, my friend visited sikkim last month. he got many flavors of tea and I did posted the one of the tea picture of them. I tagged the Goldentips on my picture, they sent me msg on instagram and then sent me two more packets of teas at my place. This was one of them. I had the packet of this matcha tea since a month and didn't tried it. When we selected the theme for our next Bloghop event and it is tea, I thought that I will try this tea for my bloghop post.

Broccoli fried rice

Broccoli Fried Rice is an easy Asian side that’s healthy, hearty and the perfect way to get your family to eat their veggies! I love the idea of an all-broccoli version of this, but I know not to test my luck too far, so for us, an equal amount of chopped broccoli to brown rice is the perfect compromise for the whole family. Just like cauliflower rice, you place the broccoli florets in the food processor and pulse until they resemble a rice-like texture. Be sure to watch is carefully because, if you process too far, then you’re on your way to pesto, but if you process it too little, then those indistinguishable grains of broccoli become chunks of green you’re child will refuse to eat. This is for our 152nd #foodiemonday #Bloghop event and our theme is #Asiancuisine. check out the recipe below and enjoy.


2 cups chopped broccoli
3 cups cooked and cooled rice
1 tbsp sesame oil, divided
1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
2 large garlic cloves, minced
1 cup frozen beans and carrots
3 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp sesame seed
1/2 cup sliced green onion
2 green chilies, chopped


1. Add broccoli to a food processor. Pulse until broccoli resembles rice.

2. Heat a large non-stick pan to a high heat. Add 2 teaspoons sesame oil. Once the oil is hot, add onion and garlic. Use a wooden spoon to stir-fry veggies until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add broccoli, continue to stir-fry another minute until broccoli begins to cook. Add remaining oil and rice. Continue to use the wooden spoon to stir-fry the mixture for another 2 minutes.

3. Add green chilies, beans, carrots, soy sauce and garlic powder. Continue to cook another 2-3 minutes until sauce has coated all the rice and veggies. Reduce the heat to medium and make a well in the center of the mixture. Mix in to the rice.

Add green onion. Toss. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve hot.

Corn Samosa

The samosa is made with a wheat flour or maida flour shell stuffed with some filling, generally a mixture of mashed boiled potato, onions, green peas, spices and green chili or fruits. The entire pastry is then deep-fried to a golden brown color, in vegetable oil. It is served hot and is often eaten with fresh Indian chutney, such as mint, coriander or tamarind. It can also be prepared as a sweet form, rather than as a savory one. Samosas are often served in chaat, along with the traditional accompaniments of yogurt, chutney, chopped onions, coriander, and chaat masala.

I am a big fan of samosas. There are many fillings we can stuff for samosas. These are the corn samosa and the light spices inside the filling is amazing. just loving the stuffing of this. Check out the recipe of corn samosas for our 151 #foodiemonday #bloghop event. enjoyy it.
