Blueberry Smoothie

This is a short post as I’m currently on long vacation in Europe. My plans to schedule a few posts didn’t worked out, so I thought it’s better I update with a quick post.

Apple & stone fruits are now in season in Europe and even though it’s the end of the season for the berries, it’s still very cheap for us Malaysians. So I’m happily snacking, making smoothies & desserts with the fruits.. happy bunny. Luckily I’m staying with friends that let me use their kitchen and raid their fridge :)  Continue Reading →

Beetroot Juice for Gallbladder Support

August 17, 2013 by Shannon Lim | 15 Comments


I just got back from a week-long retreat with yoga & raw food detox at Bahay Kalipay Retreat Center on beautiful Palawan Island, it has been a week of rejuvenating and slowing down besides the detox. I’m sure you will hear about someone detoxing or doing some cleanse very so often. Besides doing a one-off detox to remove toxins from your liver, kidney and gallbladder, a good detox is actually a gentle process that can take a few weeks by replacing the wrong food with nutrien-rich food to restore your organs like liver and gallbladder.  Continue Reading →

Homemade Almond Milk

From the department of Eating Real Food By Making Food From Scratch — the same department that started the campaign with homemade sweetened condensed milk a year ago — comes this public service announcement: Making your own almond milk is very easy and cheap.

I find that if I have too much dairy products, it starts to bother me, so I keep it to a minimum and use alternative. I don’t drink much milk, usually use them in baking/pancakes.  Continue Reading →

Sunkist Oranges & Lemons

Almost every day after dinner during my growing up years, Sunkist oranges will definitely be on the fruits platter for dessert. I think that’s pretty much a typical scene in most Malaysian homes back then. Eating fresh orange and juicing are the 2 most common ways most people consume oranges. When I was invited to attend a cooking demo with Sunkist, I look forward to discovering new ways to use the citrus. Continue Reading →

Indonesian Avocado Shake (Jus Alpukat)

Cold and sweet. Rich and creamy. Slurped through a straw. My taste buds do double takes. How can this be avocado? Before I can figure out the answer, my glass is empty. Here at the famous Kafe Warisan in Bali with my galpals, I had my first unforgettable rich Avocado Shake served with chocolate syrup dripped on the side of the glass. The green landscape before me is of rice paddy fields, abundant bananas and falling coconuts. But avocados? Who invited them? Continue Reading →

Homemade Soy Milk

January 31, 2012 by Shannon Lim | 14 Comments

Soy Milk is very much part of a Malaysian’s diet (or any where in South Asia). During childhood, I used to drink lots soy milk  and adding soy milk to tau fu fa (soy custard) brought from street stalls. There was even a mobile motorcycle stall coming to my neighbourhood, where we would just open our backyard door to get fresh soy milk and tau fu fa. Yes we were spoilt rotten. My mama used to tell me how soy milk was grinding manually using a stone grinder.. that to me was hard labour. Continue Reading →
