These are some photos of the many types of drinks sold at the Bazaar Ramadhan near my house.

Most of them are in vibrant colours; I am sure that the sellers use lots and lots of colourings to make the drinks more appealing.

Even my eldest sister was and is still tempted to buy them all 🙂

We almost never buy those drinks before but that day my dad decided to surprise my big sister by buying her some of the bright coloured drinks.

So we bought four types of drinks, lemon, honey dew, sugar cane and dragon fruit juice that look much better than they taste.

The tastiest was the creepy looking Blue Lemon drink.

Despite it’s tastiness, it has too much blue colouring that made my mouth blue for a few days.

The honey dew drink was in bright green that it looked rather scary; and the worst part was that it did not even taste like honey dew.

My big sister turned the left over honey dew drink into ice lollies which she really enjoyed.

Delicious Strawberry Yoghurt Drink Recipe-With Pictures

Last week my mother bought lots of sweet and juicy ripe strawberries.

She made our favourite strawberry yoghurt drink.

The drink was so tasty.

It is a very healthy drink because the strawberries  are rich in vitamin C, fiber, antioxidant and lots of minerals.

Yoghurt has lots of good bacteria called probiotic, minerals and vitamins.

Honey is also a very healthy food.

So when we mix all of them together, they’ll become a very healthy and tasty drink 🙂

Below is the strawberry yoghurt drink recipe.

We need:

  • Ripe strawberries.

Yummy and sweet red strawberries.
  • Natural yoghurt.

Delicious, white  natural yoghurt.
  • Some honey.

How to make the tasty drink:

  • Cut the strawberries and put the strawberries and yoghurt in a blender.

Put the yummy, red, strawberries and delicious, white natural yoghurt in a blender.
  • Add the sweet, golden honey.

Add some sweet, golden honey.
  • Add some water or some milk or both.

  • Blend them until you’ll get a beautiful pink  juice.

Blend them and this is the result.
  • Serve the drink and enjoy it 🙂

By the way, mom says that you may add some sugar or a pinch of salt to the drink but too much sugar is bad for us.

Pour the yummy drink into a mug or glass and enjoy it...

I think that strawberry yoghurt drink  looks as good as its taste.

It will be a nice drink during a hot day as it is in Kuala Lumpur now :mrgreen:

A Bamboo Stick? No, It Is Sugar Cane!

Last week Uncle Dollah gave us a long stick and my sister Kafah and I thought that it was a bamboo stick.

Then I found out that it was not a bamboo stick but it was a sugar cane!

The sugar cane given by Uncle Dollah.

I have never seen a sugar cane before.

The sugar cane was about three and a half feet long.

I used a ruler to measure the sugar cane.

It was divided into nine sections and there were hard nodes in between the sections.

We use sugar cane to make sugar.

We can also make sugar cane juice or eat it raw.

This is how to eat raw sugar cane:

  1. You can use your teeth to peel out the hard skin and bite into the inner part and chew it. 

    You can use your teeth to peel out the hard skin.

     

    …or…

    1. First use a big knife to cut the sugar cane stalk into sections. Your mother has to do all these for you 🙂 

      Use a big knife to peel out the hard skin.

       

    2. Then peel out the hard skin and wash them.

    3. Then cut the sugar cane into small pieces.

    4. Put the sugar cane pieces into a plate.

    5. Then we eat it 🙂 We chew the sugar cane pieces for the juice and throw away the husk in a rubbish bin. 

      I'm eating the sugar cane.

       

  2. It was really fun to eat raw sugar cane and the juice tasted so sweet.

    Thank you Uncle Dollah; and I hope that maybe Uncle Dollah can give me more sugar cane ….

How To Make Roselle Juice

This is how we make our yummy roselle juice from my own roselle plants:

  • First we need to plant the roselle from roselle seeds.

    Small roselle plant

  • Then we need to wait for a few months until it grow bigger and bigger.

  • After a few month, the roselle starts to have flowers.

  • Later they become fruits.

    My roselle plant with lots of fruit

  • Pluck the ripe fruits.

    Roselle fruits from one of my roselle plants

  • Wash them until clean.

  • Let them dry.

    Washed roselle fruits

  • Cut them into small pieces.

  • Put them in a pot.

  • Add water and sugar.

    Boil the roselle pieces

  • Boil them.

  • Blend the roselle pieces.

I love roselle juice very much.

Roselle juice-looks yummy and very healthy too

It is better to make our own roselle juice because some people add artificial colouring, artificial flavouring and preservatives to the juice that they sell in supermarkets.

Homemade roselle juice from my own plants is very tasty and rich in vitamin C.

It is a healthy drink.

So I have to plant more roselle 🙂

Planting our own fruits and vegetables is good.

Roselle Picking

Now I have three roselle plants.

They are very big and healthy.

I planted them from Rosie’s seeds.

Rosie was my old roselle plant.

It died a long time ago.


My roselle plants have a lot of fruits.

Today I picked 8 fruits from my roselle plant.

The ripe fruits are maroon in colour.

My roselle plants with lots of fruits and flowers

Roselle tastes very, very, very, very, very, very, very sour.

Before they become fruits they were flowers.

The flowers are big, pink and beautiful.


The roselle flower looks like hibiscus.

But hibiscus has a long style in the middle of the flower.


After the flowers fall, the fruits grow.

We can make roselle juice using the fruits.

Roselle juice is very tasty.

It is also a healthy drink.

It is rich in vitamin C and has a natural red colour.

Roselle picking is fun 🙂

And I love apple picking too.


Strawberry

Strawberry is a fruit.

It has a lot of tiny seeds.

Ripe strawberries are red.

Strawberry is very nutritious.

It has antioxidant and Vitamin C.

Some strawberries are big but some are small .

I like to eat the sweet and juicy strawberries.

Anyway some strawberries are sour.

We can eat fresh strawberry and also made it into yummy juice.

We can also make strawberry jam, ice-cream and lots of other tasty things to eat.

Strawberry grows in cool places.

In Malaysia , strawberry grows in Cameron Highland , Pahang.

Cameron Highland a is cool place in the mountains of the Titiwangsa Range.

Last time I had a strawberry plant named Strawy but it died.

There is a place named Strawberry in Arizona, U.S.A.

Anyway strawberry cannot grows there  because it is too hot.
