Click and Cucumber kiwi smoothie

I don’t want to miss Click: wood event hosted by Jugalbandi. I have seen many bloggers featuring wood :) my click is paper! Yes, sometimes, we use very commonly in our everyday life! Paper coffee filters and tea bags are made with paper. At the first glance, some may think there is no wood, just think beyond, wood pulp is the most common material to make paper!



**********************

I prepared this drink a year ago. Probably last summer, I guess. Cucumber, kiwi, yogurt and some honey, u have a tasty cooling drink.

Kiwi Cucumber cooler



I will give approxi. some measurement.

Ingredients:

Yogurt: 1 cup

Cucumber: 1/4 seedless

Kiwi: 2 fruits Peeled

Honey: 2 tsp less or more

Blend all the ingredients together! Strain to remove the kiwi seeds and enjoy cold!

Asha said...

Cham, thanks a million for that link, hugs to you. I did look at contact page y'day, couldn't figure it out.
I went there and left a long mail and requested them to remove and reprimand that woman. I think they will do it when they are maintaining a website. I did the same with other website and they did remove my photo once.
But this Param guy who has posted my whole post and disappeared, can't even get the nutcase to even talk! :D

Cilantro said...
