Strawberry & Coconut Cocktail

Hello Friends,

It’s Saturday!
Which is a perfect day for a nice refreshing Spring Cocktail by the pool, in the backyard, on the deck or with some friends or maybe just your cat!

This is a recipe I made up when I visited by parents house. I was inspired by how fresh the air and sunshine was there and by all the ingredients growing in the garden!Strawberry & Coconut Cocktail

❈ 60mls Coconut Rum
❈ 1-2 Mint Sprigs 
❈ 4 Lime Wedges
❈ 2 Strawberries, chopped
❈ Soda Water

Add all ingredients except Soda Water and one of the Strawberries into a Boston Shaker and fill with ice {if you don’t have one a jar with a lid is fine – that’s what I did at my parents home}, SHAKE! and then dump into a jar. Top with Soda Water, add slices of Strawberry and Garnish with a Mint Sprig.

Strawberry & Coconut CocktailSo many of these ingredients I found around the home! My Mum grows this amazing Chocolate Mint that literally smells like Mint Slice biscuits! My Dad grows a Lime Tree and Strawberries in the backyard. So these ingredients are so easy to find just around the home! Mum even gave me off cuts of the Chocolate Mint so now I grow it on my window still!

The Coconut Rum I brought was called Divas Glades Coconut and was only $16!! So crazy cheap!

Well that is all,
Enjoy your Saturday Afternoon!

Green Detox Juice

Hi All,

It’s Spring in Australia and it is already HOT!!
So, I have a really yummy, refreshing, healthy and delicious juice to share with you all.
Yes it is all those three things!

Cucumber & Coriander Juice

❉ Cucumber
❉ Micro Coriander {Normal is fine as well}
❉ Lemon
❉ Green Apple

Using a juicer juice half a Cucumber, one whole Green Apple and one peeled Lemon.
I then like to blend all these ingredients together with about half a scoop of ice and some Micro Coriander leaves in a blender. Once blended pour into a jar, add some ice cubes and voilå!

This is so delicious and so easy. Micro herbs are also great to grow for your kitchen as they are small and full of flavour, and lets not forget super cute and great for apartment life!

Cucumber is so good for you as well, it contains a heap of Vitamin B’s including Vitamin B1, B5 and B7 {great for hair & nails}. B vitamins help ease the feelings of anxiety and help with stress! Which is great for if you are a stress head like me!
Cucumber is also rich in the most basic elements needed for healthy digestion: Fibre and Water!

Consuming Coriander is proven to be one of the most effective methods to remove heavy metals such as; Mercury, Lead and Cadmium from the body. Coriander is also an Antiseptic that will help with Mouth Ulcers {A stress issue for me} and to freshen your breath!

P.S Blenders & Juices are so so cheap to buy and well worth the investment!
