RECIPE: Detox Green Smoothie by The Sexy Chef

This is a surprisingly good (and green) smoothie made by Chef Barni and Ms. Rachel Alejandro during the Wellness Cooking Demo at the Robinsons Supermarket, Robinsons Magnolia.

I was having doubts when I saw Chef Barni added kangkong leaves but a foodie is a foodie so I had a sip, and another sip ... until I asked for another glass. No kidding.



1/2 cup romaine lettuce
1/2 cup spinach or kangkong leaves
1/2 cup ripe mango, diced
1 small banana
2 tbsp cilantro or parsley, chopped
1 tbsp coconut sugar
pinch of ground turmeric, optional
1/2 cup coconut water or water
1 cup ice


In a blender, puree all ingredients until smooth.



So how does it taste like? Hmmmm ... honestly, its so green that I almost didn't want to taste it. Besides, it has kangkong and I always associate the leaves with sinigang- hehe. Anyways, I got curious and asked for a tiny cup. Oh my, it tasted so good- sweet, refreshing, and light. The natural sweetness of the ripe mangoe and banana blends in well with the"greens" so it doesn't have any funny taste. And I thought that detox drinks doesn't taste that good.

Thank you Chef Barni and Ms. Rachel Alejandro for showing us that vegetables are not only healthy, but delicious as well.

Salcedo Market x Legaspi Market Tour

We haven't visited the weekend markets for years so I was giddy with excitement because I was able to visit both Salcedo and Legaspi markets this month, thanks to our Dusit Thani Manila staycation . To differentiate the two, Salcedo market  is held every Saturday at the Jaime Velasquez Park in Salcedo Village Makati while Legaspi market is held every Sunday at the Corinthian Carpark in Legaspi Village Makati. Since we were coming from Dusit Thani Manila, it was quite a long walk but it was early in the morning (around 8AM) and even Ayala and Makati Avenues were still without cars. Wow! 

NEW RESTO ALERT: Hà Nội Phố (Ha Noi Pho)

Makati has been a go-to place for my family and I to grab a meal or sometimes just to have a cup of coffee. Though, really, it’s mostly just us visiting our favorite spots. Recently, my mom went out of town so it was just my dad and I who went out for dinner.
