Kale Smoothie

Serves: 2
Prep time: 4 mins

We started being health conscious a lot when we started traveling. We heard that everybody comes back home from America fat so we didn’t want that to be us at all. We watched everything we ate and had minimal cheat days. You were never going to catch us slipping… No, no, no.

1 tsp Honey
1 Tbs Chia Seeds

Blend all ingredients together until smoothie.

Ginger and Carrot Juice

Serves: 2
Prep time: 5 mins

We got ourselves a juicer as a birthday present to ourselves, but our younger brother Kgomotso is sick of us because we juice EVERYTHING. Add pineapple to this recipe if you’re not a huge fan of carrots because this juice is very “carroty” (it would be awkward if it wasn’t, but you get what we are saying right?).

Ingredients:
15cm Ginger
8 Large Carrots
1-2 Green Apples

Method:
Pass the fruits and veggies in a juicer or nutribullet, add more ginger if you desire.
Serve with some ice.

1/2C Pineapple, frozen
1/2C Bananas, frozen
1 Tbs Honey
1 Tbs Lemon Juice
1/2C Ice Cubes
1/2C Spinach (optional)

Method:
Blitz all the ingredients together until smooth.
Serve chilled.

WILD CHERRY & CRANBERRY ROOIBOS MALIBU SUNSET

1/2 Rooibos ice cubes
1/2 cup cranberry juice
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup Malibu coconut rum

Add ice to glass, add the juices, the Malibu rum and stir.
Pour into glasses. Drizzle in the grenadine. Garnish.
Serve immediately. Drink is intended for only those who consume alcohol.

Ginger Beer Sorbet

Serves: 8-10

If they don’t serve “Gemere” at your wedding, is it even a wedding? Only our grandmother was the designated ginger beer maker, she makes it so well and if you want good ginger beer, make sure it brews for a couple of days. We made the typical ginger beer into a sorbet, it’s an amazing pallet cleanser. 

Ingredients: 
1 1/2 L Water
1C Castor Sugar
2 Tbs Ginger Powder
1/2 tsp Cream of Tartar 
Peel of 1 Apple
Peel of 1/2 Lemon
Handful of Pineapple Pieces
1 tsp Instant Dry Yeast

Method:
Pour 500g water into a pot. Add sugar and still until it’s all dissolved.
Add ginger, cream of tartar, Apple and lemon peel as well as pineapple pieces. 
Add the rest of the water and simmer on medium heat for about 12 mins. Then allow to completely cool. Stir in the yeast. Cover and leave to stand overnight.
Strain through a whisk into a container and chill. (At this point, it’s ready to drink.)
To make sorbet, place ginger beer into the freezer container and freeze for about 2 hours. Stir with a for every 30 mins so it doesn’t crystallize.
Once it can hold shape and frozen, you may serve.
