IMG_7636

The most refreshing cocktail in my opinion! It gives me major Tropical beach vibes 🙂 and I love how easy this recipe is…. and chances are you already had all the ingredients in your fridge so no need to go shopping. If you’re having a dinner party and you want to impress your guests try this!

 

You’ll need:

  • ½ Cup of Ice Cubes
  •  1 Cup of frozen or fresh pineapple chunks
  •  1 Cup of Coconut Milk
  •  1 tablespoon of lime juice
  •  1 whole pineapple for serving (Optional)

 

Directions:

  • Cut open the pineapple and take out all the fresh juicy insides and you’ll be left with a bowl shaped pineapple shell. Put this in the freezer while we prepare the Pina Colada.
  • The rest is easy! Put all your ingredients in a juice blender and whiz whiz whiz until you get a smooth consistency.
  •  Pour the drink into the frozen Pineapple shell for an extra chilled goodness! If you want to turn this into a Cocktail simply add 1 ounce of white rum….I hope you enjoy this recipe…..

CRISPY COCONUT CHICKEN

I was going away for the weekend and realised I had some boneless chicken breasts in my fridge that I didn’t want to come back to. I definitely had to try something new, quick and easy. I really didn’t take any measurements for this recipe because I honestly didn’t think I would share it here, but it turned out really good so I decided to put it up for you guys! I remember I had four chicken breasts, a bowl with the wet ingredients (eggs and buttermilk) and a separate bowl with the dry ingredients (breadcrumbs and coconut flakes).

What’ll need:

Boneless chicken breast

Buttermilk

Salt

Pepper

2 large eggs

coconut flakes

bread crumbs

vegetable oil

Procedure;

Step 1: Slice the chicken breasts, season them (I only used salt and loads of pepper for mine) and set aside.

Step 2: Crack the eggs in a bowl and add some buttermilk (maybe 2 cups will do). Mix together and set aside. In a separate bowl add some breadcrumbs and some coconut flakes. Make sure you have way moreeee of coconut flakes in the bowl.

Step 3: Heat up some vegetable oil in a deep fryer or deep frying pan to 160oc. Make sure the oil isn’t too hot to ensure that the chicken is thoroughly cooked.

Step 4 : Dip the chicken in the egg and milk mixture, then completely cover the chicken in the breadcrumbs and coconut flakes mixture. Place this in the pan to fry for a few minutes and allow to cool before serving.
