Blueberry Frozen Yoghurt

I love a good frozen yoghurt especially one that's blended with fresh fruits like those served at Yogen Fruz. A scoop of your favourite fruit is crushed and blended with plain yoghurt. For me, it has to be the blueberry or cherry mix. Topped with just a bit of runny chocolate sauce, a small tub of the FroYo is bliss. Fruity, tangy and sweet all at the same time!

Well, I can't be running to the store every time I crave for one of those. So I compared a few recipes, tweaked and made something I like even better using blueberries. Love this recipe for its creamy fruitiness. The lemon just adds more zing to it and the colour of the final product is simply gorgeous. 


Blueberry Frozen Yoghurt 

You will need ...

450g low fat vanilla yoghurt ( or you can use plain yoghurt with a teaspoon of vanilla extract)
170g fresh or frozen (thawed) blueberries 
2 -3 tbsp honey or maple syrup ( I prefer honey)
Zest of a lemon and juice of half (or more if you like)
Pinch of salt 

Mix blueberries, lemon juice and zest along with honey into a small sauce pan. Cook on medium heat while stirring for five to 10 mins as it comes to boil. 

Transfer the mixture into a wire mesh strainer and puree into a stainless steel bowl. *Put aside the pulp. 

Chill the puree by sticking it into the freezer. Give it a stir every five minutes. 

Once chilled, bring out the bowl and stir in the yoghurt and salt. Mix well, cover it with a foil and stick back into the freezer. Give it a stir after an hour and another stir an hour later. Continue to freeze for a few more hours till it is able to hold shape when you scoop. Alternately, you can use an ice-cream maker. 

*You can sprinkle some of the pulp on the frozen yoghurt when serving. I like a bit of this lemon-infused fibre as topping. Just make sure to keep it moist.  


Indulge!

  7. I agree with Juliette. Let's open a restaurant (in London) and then you can be the chef and Jules and I will take care of the patrons (or maybe we'll just eat everything you make lol).

Healing With Essential Oils

OILS and I go a long way. My mom used a lot of oil on me, growing up. As a teenager, baby oil was my go-to daily face moisturiser. I didn't know then what I know now about synthetic oils but it worked for me. In my early 20s, I fell in love with pure essential oils. I was introduced to the world of Culpeper during work. Then, I was gifted a 50ml bottle of jojoba base oil with two precious bottles of 10ml rose and geranium essentials oils courtesy of Culpeper. I was set for life and I've never looked back ever since. 

Over the years, I have depended on and dwelled solely in beauty oils. Recently, I've started learning about healing through essential oils. It's been a huge eye-opener for me. Essential oils are just not skin deep, they're simply so much more than that. The potent substances extracted through steam distillation from various shrubs, flowers, roots, skin and seeds could have incredible healing powers when used with sensitivity, respect and knowledge.

Do You Feel The Same?

I noticed that I'm only propelled to write when I'm unhappy, sad or desolate - basically whenever my heart is burdened by some of what life has thrown at me. That's one of the main reasons why I haven't been writing on here often in the recent years. I want to be remembered as this fresh-spirited, witty and uncomplicated narrator. But it's so hard to write about the jolly things in life when my mind is tangled up so much in a web of worries. I don't want sappy tales of my life floating about in the world wide web long after I'm gone. And yet, I find myself most comfortable indulging in unhappiness. Or rather it's easier to relate to conflicts, physical pain and loss than to all the other things that I should be happy about. Does that make any sense to you? 

Or is this mid-life crisis? 




Malaysia On 10 May 2018

I felt it in the air on the morning of May 10, 2018, I swear. The air felt fresher, the sky looked calmer, trees greener, and people, nicer. It was like a spell had been broken, and the evil forces, banished and put in their places, and good prevailed. I could breathe better. I sensed the jubilation in the quiet, morning atmosphere. The heaviness I felt in my heart the night before had vanished. Never did I imagine that I would live to experience that day and moment in history in my lifetime. And, so did every Malaysian who were on their knees and toes, doing all they could for this change of government to happen through the 14th general election on May 9. Truth to be told, I never doubted for a second that the opposition could take over. But...it's the but that bothered us too much because electoral fraud was a threat greater than your mother-in-law during the period. 

I spoke to my family that morning. My mom was ecstatic on the phone. "Have you heard?". "Oh, I hav…
