Lemongrass Pandan Drink

  My son’s intake of fluid is primarily milk and water. He doesn’t like soft drinks or any store-bought drinks. He finds their taste “weird”. But when it comes to homemade drinks, he always welcomes them and even asks for more.   Out of all the drinks that I make, herbal drink always gets the most attention. I make them all-year round as they are easy to make, cheap, low in sugar and high...

Mango Lassi

  We just returned from Malaysia where we spent our short vacation at our hometowns of Kuala Lumpur and Penang. It was real fun to get together with relatives and old friends, as well as pampering our tummies with our favourite local cuisines. But, sad to say, the quality for some of them had deteriorated and didn’t quite keep up to our expectation. Meanwhile, the food prices were marked higher than...

Simple avocado drink

  Avocado 酪梨 (also known as butter pear 牛油果or alligator pear 鳄梨/) is rich in the antioxidants beta carotene, vitamins C and E, magnesium, potassium and monounsaturated fat which can boost your immune system. Not only does it bring many health benefits to adults, it is an excellent weaning food for babies too. I introduced this fruit to my son when he got past 1 year old. He enjoys very much...

Chrysanthemum and wolfberry tea

  Ever since I started my food blog one and half year ago, I have been starring at the computer more often and for longer duration too. As a consequence, both my short-sighted and astigmatism have deteriorated. Making thing worse is that I also suffered from long-sighted. Admittedly, these are also signs of aging, and hopefully wiser. 😉   Those blurry eyes of mine reminded me of a chrysanthemum...

Homemade soybean milk

  Soybean milk (豆水)is a healthy, nutritious,and delicious drink for everyone. It’s also one of my family’s favourite drinks. For convenience, we usually consume those pre-packed ones even though they lack the wholesome freshness in taste. Beggar can’t be choosy, right?   But recently I chanced upon a very informative post written by Dr Leslie Tay of ieatishootipost...

Water chestnut and bamboo cane drink

This is another body cooling and thirst quenching drink I love to boil for my family on hot and heaty days.  The method of preparation is as simple as that for the barley drink recipe which I posted earlier.   I first learnt about this method from a neighbour. The drink is her family’s all-time favourite. A kid whom she babysat many years ago loved it so much that he even requested...

Barley drink (薏米水)

  Singapore has been hit by a dry spell since April.  High temperature got many people sick, including members of my family.  The flu bug has been going around town. It started with my hubby, followed by my son, then my mother-in-law (who was here for a short vacation) and finally me (who had not fallen sick for the past 2 years!). During this period, I was drained and in no mood to cook or bake. That...

Masala chai (Indian tea)

  According to Wikipedia, masala chai is a beverage from the Indian subcontinent made by brewing tea with a mixture of aromatic Indian spices and herbs. There is no universal recipe or method used for preparing masala chai. It varies among each household based on their taste and preferences.   Nevertheless, all masala chai are basically made up of four components: tea, sweetener, milk and spices....
