Lime & Kiwi Sorbet

A sorbet is a frozen dessert where the fruit pulp or flavouring is used. The ice crystals are very small (if the crystals are big, they tend to be a granita) This kiwi and lime sorbet is lightly sweetened with honey and the taste is divine. Try is on a summer’s afternoon.

Chaas (Spiced Indian Buttermilk)


With the summer beating down on us, t is best to rehydrate ourselves with liquids. Whether it’s during meals or in between; a nice glass of buttermilk helps one to cope with the summer heat. Also known as ‘Chaach’, buttermilk has cooling properties and can be flavoured in many ways.

Iced Teas

With summer approaching, it would be nice to have tall glasses of iced teas. As a beverage, tea contains antioxidants and has less caffeine than coffee. Tea may also reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke, protect bones, boost the immune system and may help battle cancer.

My iced tea flavours are:

Iced Tea: Basil

Iced Tea: Basil-Lemongrass

Iced Tea: Ginger & Lemongrass

Iced Tea: Ginger & Mint

Iced Tea: Ginger, Mint & Honey

Iced Tea: Lemon

Iced Tea: Mint

Iced Tea: Orange

Iced Tea: Peach

Iced Tea: Strawberry

Iced Tea: Thai

Flavoured Water

During summer, I like to make a jug of flavoured water which is Summer Flavoured Waterrefreshing and cooling. While I have seen lemon or mint being put in water jugs in restaurants, I always see this flavoured water being used at my friends’ (the Jaiswals) place during summers. Try it!

I slice cucumbers (about 1/2 cm thick. Alternatively, they could be sliced lengthwise in quarters), lemon/lime slices and mint sprigs. Add these to a jug, add water and leave aside for atleast 4 hours (recommended to leave this overnight). Then, enjoy!
