Recap of our 3rd KarmaFree Cooking Class

6 May

Last month we celebrated our 3rd KarmaFree Cooking Class.  The theme was Breakfast in Bed for Mom…

KarmaFree Cooking's Vegetarian Class

 

We were honored to be featured in El Nuevo Día, Puerto Rico’s largest newspaper.  The turnout was great – many people who do not consider themselves vegetarian yet wanting to learn about a more natural and meat-free lifestyle.  To me that reads SUCCESS because that’s exactly the goal of KarmaFree Cooking…  teaching people that a vegetarian lifestyle is doable and delicious.

I want to share a recap of the recipes shared at the class.  Some are new, some are KarmaFree classics and some are updates on favorites of all of us.

We also talked about how to best combine fruits for your fruit salads and juices

 

If you live in Puerto Rico, hope you can join us for our next KarmaFree Cooking class.  If you are not so lucky to live in Puerto Rico, rest assured we’ll be sharing the recipes here on the blog.  But doing it in person, as part of our group and then tasting the results of your labor is a whole different experience.

Thanks a lot to Angie and my mom who always help and thanks a bunch to the class attendants who always make giving these courses a whole lotta fun.

Mango Strawberry Pineapple Smoothie

This is kinda like a Mango Lassi, but with more fruits which makes it perfect for a breakfast drink. I am trying my best to keep my new year’s resolution of eating more fruits each day.

Updated Tropical Cream Supreme Breakfast Smoothie

23 Jan

As a New Year’s resolution I vowed to eat healthier… and making sure I eat my servings of fruit a day is certainly part of it.

I love the Tropical Cream Supreme combination from the Orange Juluis. To be honest, I don’t even know if this fast food joint still exists out there. Possibly I should Google it. But I know these flavors are part of my growing up. But sometimes, we need to change things up…

So here is my updated version of the Tropical Creme Supreme and it’s become my new favorite breakfast smoothie.
