Home-Made Coconut Ice Cream

No ice cream maker? No sweat...

You can make this without an ice cream maker, though it won’t be exactly the same consistency. Ice cream makers basically work by churning a ton of air into the mixture. If you beat the ice cream mixture by hand, it’ll be denser and a little coarser, because you won’t be able to get as much air into it by hand. That said, here’s what to do:

Zingy Carrot Salad

Everybody likes carrots, this sweet root is optimal for all doshas.

Carrots are an excellent source of vitamin  A, providing 210% of the average adult's needs for the day. They also provide 6% of vitamin C needs, 2% of calcium needs and 2% of iron needs per serving.
It is the antioxidant beta-carotene that gives carrots their bright orange color. Beta-carotene is absorbed in the intestine and converted into vitamin A during digestion.

Pomegranate Chilli Syrup

Natural syrups are easy to make and very regarding in the kitchen as well as a medicinal tonic. This honey based syrup goes well over almost any thing, or as an addition to salad dressing and other sauces. Because it is honey based, do not cooked, since warm honey become poison.

I like to mix this syrup with ghee or any other oil as a based for fortifying breakfast cereals, salads and chutneys.

You can find the pomegranate syrup in middle East stores.

Solstice Mango Salad

The secret to make this salad is to use fresh ripe orange mangoes from Mexico. They are usually in season in June and July and available in Chinese stores. It can be time consuming to do this salad for 50 people, as I did in a solstice party, however is surely  a way to impress any special guess. For 4 people can only take 10 minutes.

Ingredients for 4 people:
6 ripe sweet orange mangoes from Mexico.
1 small green limes
