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.

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

Boracay's Hidden Gem: Mama's Fish House

I've always wanted to dine at Mama's Fish House in Boracay but wasn't able to for some forgotten reasons already. Then the pandemic happened and we're in lockdown or limited travel movement for almost two years. And guess what? One of the nicest thing to happen on our recent trip to Boracay was to discover that Mama's Fish House was located just outside the beach front of our hotel- Microtel by Wyndham Boracay . Talk about serendipity!
