Strawberry Coconut Milkshake

The secret ingredient to this rich, creamy and absolutely refreshing strawberry coconut milkshake is frozen strawberries! I am absolutely loving strawberry season in Karachi. I know that we can make loads of fancy desserts with this beautiful red fruit, my absolute favorite has to be milkshakes. Creamy, refreshing and taking literally minutes to prepare they are just SO good! Plus ever since I learnt how to freeze strawberries, making milkshakes has become even simpler.

Eggless Strawberry Mousse

This light & creamy eggless strawberry mousse is the simplest dessert to make with fresh strawberries in season. I absolutely love fruits and strawberries have to be one of my favorites.

They also used to be quite expensive so even having a strawberry shake…

Normandy Apple Tart

  How many of you have experienced the moment where you get beautiful red apples from the ‘Sabzi Wala’, bite into them and they turn out to be soft & mealy instead of crisp & juicy. I know people love the soft yellow apples, but my family preference is always ‘crisp’ apples, so when there are 2 kilo’s of apples in the house which no one really wants to eat, its time for me to start looking up recipes on…
