Mango Puree & Coconut Whipped Cream

It’s summer and so humid, therefore some refreshing desserts please! Living on a tropical island feels like a blessing if you have a basket of tropical fruits at home. Needless to mention the amount of recipes you can create with these dulcet fruits. 

I love how easy this recipe is, no need to see flour spill on the flour, plenty of mess in the kitchen and having to wait and wait until dessert is baked and ready. This recipe is really refreshing and soothing against the heat, mango and coconut, an amazing blend together! The tropical vibes are on. If you have never made Mango Puree before or if it can’t be found in your local grocery store, then I have an easy recipe for Mango Puree on my blog.

Blueberry Frappe

20170727_160409

Summer is already here, all we are seeking is an amazing cold drink. It can always be a fruit refreshing drink or just some fruits mixed with carbs 😀 I was never fond of Blueberry Frappe or any Frappe because I could never find the perfect sweet and creamy frappe when I went to a few restaurants and bistrots. Plus its so expensive. 

I am finally in love with my Blueberry Frappe because I had controlled over the consistency and ingredients. You will be proud after you have made your own glass topped on with amazing relishes, just perfect for a photo also…..
