Mulberry Mango smoothie

Mulberry mango smoothie

For 2 glasses

1        large ripe mango
50g    mulberries
400ml water
3-4     ice cubes

Optional 1 Tablespoon honey, a pinch of vanilla

1. Peel mango and cut in pieces around the hard inner part; clean the mulberries under running water and put asinde. Give mango pieces in a blender with 300ml water and blend for 1-2 minutes until creamy. Fill in glasses and clean the blender shortly under running water.

2. Add the mulberries in the blender with the remaining water, ice cubes and optional honey and valilla (sometimes they are a bit sour…). Blend for 1-2 minutes until it looks smooth, then slowly add in your smoothie glasses with the mango part. To get a few swirls of mulberry in your smoothie use a fork or eating stick and mix carefully.

The colors in that drink look so amazing, it’s like sunset in a glass; also a great smoothie for Kids.

Lost & Found – Breakfast time in Canggu

Lost&Found in Canggu

This week I tried one of the many newly opened restaurants in Canggu. Lost&Found is open for breakfast and lunch and has a nice selection of breakfast/brunch sets and fresh juices and smoothies. The design of the restaurant is very cute and cozy in bright colors mixed with wood. They have a lot of creative furniture, like a table with an old coffee maker instead of a stand. The whole inside area is very bright and offers a great atmosphere for breakfast. As they are directly on Jl. Subak Sari next to Canggu Club they don’t have an outside area.

We went there for a late breakfast, so everyone was very hungry when we arrived. We ordered the sunshinebrekkie, the oriental breakfast and the hungry surfer breakfast and I got a fresh juice (beetroot/orange) on top. The service was attentive and very friendly and the food arrived quickly after ordering. I especially liked the oriental breakfast eggs, baked in an oven dish with spicy sausage and yogurt sauce on top, served with herbal baguette slices.

Juices

Oriental breakfast

The sunshine breakfast is a combination of fruit salad with yogurt and honey, a croissant and coffee and juice (you can choose any coffee and from the 2 juices of the day, in our case watermelon or honeydew). The combination for hungry surfers contains 2 eggs (as you like them), 1 fried potato patty, roasted mushrooms and tomatoes, bacon and 1 sausage and toast plus coffee and juice. The prices are very reasonable; we paid 65.000rp (4,30 €) for the hungry surfer breakfast, 40.000rp (2,60 €) for the oriental eggs and 35.000rp (2,50 €) for the sunny breakfast.

In my opinion Lost & Found is a great new place for breakfast to try in the Canggu area; next time I go there I’ll try the smoothies.

Pineapple – mangosteen smoothie

Pineapple-mangosteen smoothie

For 2 glasses

1      small pineapple (the asian ones, otherwise 1/2 big one)
1      banana
4      mangosteen
1      piece of ginger (as big as you like)
1      pinch of curcuma
200ml water

Cut pineapple and banana in pieces; remove the capsule from the mangosteens. Puree all ingredients in a blender with 2-3 ice cubes for 1-2 minutes. Enjoy!

This is a very healthy smoothie, the enzymes from the pineapple, a lot of vitamin c and other antioxidants from the super fruit mangosteen plus ginger and curcuma, with their anti-inflammatory effects, this mix is a great boost for your immune system.

Guava Lassi

guava lassi

For 2 glasses
3        guavas
1/8   watermelon
1        tablespoon honey
100  ml water
50g  plain yogurt

For this smoothie it’s better to use a blender with integrated filter, because guavas have a lot of very hard seeds. You can also try to remove the seeds with a small fork, but it will take a while. If you use a blender with filter, just puree all ingredients for 1-2 minutes.

I’m very happy about the fact that the season for guavas just started in Bali. I just love this fruit,it has a delicious taste and is very healthy. I just had to give this superfruit it’s own post.
