Fruit Salad with Yogurt

Here is your step away from something usually called a dessert: fresh fruit salad dressed with plain yogurt.

No flour, no sugar, almost no fat (if you use low-fat yogurt); only fresh raw fruits loaded with vitamins and tons of good nutrients.

Besides being a dessert, this salad can be great choice for breakfast or lunch or just a snack when you need it.

You can mix and match fruits to your liking for this one. I used pineapples, banana, orange, apple, kiwi and pear. Mint is also optional and can be skipped it if you don’t like it.

This easy yet very tasty chicken meat roast is perfect choice for romantic or family dinner.

If you buy pre-packaged boneless skinless chicken thighs (like me) all you need to do is to arrange them in baking pan, cover with layers of pineapple chunks, bananas slices, mayo and cheese, then stick pan to the oven.

Serve hot with mashed potatoes or rice.

White Wine Jelly with Bananas

White Wine Jelly with Bananas

Tipsy wine-based banana jelly isn’t the kind which comes to the mind first when talking about jelly desserts. It has unusual taste and as you can guess includes some alcohol, which makes it not suitable for children.

Any white wine will work for this recipe. Taste of the dessert will vary based on the taste of the used wine, adjust amount of sugar to your liking to get the best results.

Using silicone molds will give you more festive shaped jelly portions, however be aware that getting jelly out of the molds in one piece isn’t that easy (especially if the molds you use are such small ones like mine).

Hens cooked by this recipe turn out juicy, seriously juicy. If you don’t have cornish hens – you can cook pieces of chicken like this with similar result.

About 3 hours of marinating is enough, but if you want it can be done overnight, just make sure that chicken is fully covered with marinade.

Leftovers can be stored and warmed up in the same pot with sauce, the meat will not lose its juiciness.

Banana Milkshake (Fruit Milkshake)

Banana Milkshake (Fruit Milkshake)

Even though the title says this is recipe for Banana Milkshake, this very simple recipe can be used to prepare pretty much any kind of fruit milkshake – just replace bananas with strawberry or raspberries and vanilla ice-cream with any kind of ice cream you like and enjoy your very own taste of a milkshake.

I should also mention what milk and ice-cream (main ingredients of a milkshake) are good sources of calcium, which is an important component of a healthy diet. It is especially for children. Which makes milkshakes good drinks for kids: not only is it tasty so they love it, but also is nutritious.

So, whatever your goal is – to make sure your kid gets the needed amount of calcium or to remind yourself about the times when you were a kid – make a milkshake (it is easy)!
