Raspberry chia fresca { A protein-packed refreshing drink }

--> recette en français

    Less active on the blog for the past weeks - not that I don't have any recipes in stock, they're just waiting to be written or to be tested - but I haven't had much time lately and also I was quite busy on a cooking project I wanted to finish before leaving abroad in vacation.

   Before leaving indeed, a heat wave hit Paris and its surroundings where I live and I needed something fresh to drink but wanted to try something new and I stumbled upon a chia fresca recipe on Pinterest. So it was the occasion to try a new use of these magic seeds. This refreshing drink is a must- liked by sporty people because of its high amount of proteins and fibres that help the body to recover after some efforts.

15 delicious and original recipes with raspberries

--> in French

    If you're looking for a  recipe with raspberries, you'll find about 20 on the blog - well the French version at least, but you can use the translation button on the right to translate them until they arrive in English on this version. They are one of my favorite fruit and I enjoy them all year long because you can easily freeze them (or buy them frozen) and keep their shape, sweet flavor and nutrients.

   In winter in smoothies or in cakes, the raspberries will add a lovely touch of color and acid flavor to apple and pear recipes I find lack a little of a taste sometimes

Zoodles (zucchini noodles), avocado pesto and cherry tomatoes

--> recipe in French

    Today, just the once will not hurt, this is a trendy recipe I'm going to talk to you about. You may have seen those zoodles on the Web the past months. They are "noodles" of zucchinis/courgettes that are barely cooked and that you enjoy with a sauce or other vegetables like wheat pasta.

Earl Grey iced tea with hibiscus, orange blossom water (and a few raspberries)

--> recette en français

    In summer, I like to vary thirst-quenching drinks and discover new flavor associations. I had liked using dried mallow flowers in a few recipes - here, here or here - so I bought a few months ago dried hibiscus flowers but had never used them since then not knowing what to do with them.

   Last weekend, I took part to the 3rd edition of a food challenge organized by a food recipe French Website CuisineAZ, on Friday morning the person who has collected the most votes on her/his recipe the edition before draw lots for a letter and people who participate have to publish a recipe beginning with that letter on the Website of CuisineAZ and this time it was the letter "H" so of course, I just twisted the title so that it began with "hibiscus".
