Tropical Sangria

Posted From:

Tropical Sangria

Tropical Sangria- A refreshing blend of  pineapple, papaya, guava  juice and fruits , infused with moscato and rum.

You say  Sangria.

I say crowd pleaser, versatile, fresh tasting, crazy good flavors, vibrantly colored and tons of other adjectives that would take up this whole page.


This tropical sangria is deserving of all these appealing adjectives, because it is simply a really good fruity drink and is also great for non-alcoholics too- without the alcohol.

They say this tropical sangria is best during summer, they (popular belief) might be right, but it tastes darn good too, during this festive season. Why not make it when you have all these tropical fruits available and if you don’t. No worries, use the fruits you have available.

My favorite fruits are, pineapple, papaya and mango- these are the fruits I grew up eating during my formative years. They have remained on my go-to list of fruits.

The other fruits, which I like but are not available all the time, are guava and passion fruit. I found some fresh-looking guava at my local Indian market and I jumped at the chance of including it in this tropical blend and it fit right in.

This tropical-inspired sangria is quite sweet. The guava, pineapple and passion fruit sweetens the sangria up, so no additional sugar is really needed. You may use any combination of fruit juice and wine. Adding rum to this fruit blend gives it a nice zing.

However, it is your creation do with it as you wish. It really has no recipe, just guidelines. Switch it up and make it your signature drink.

Tips: Make sure your fruits are firm , not mushy and it  tastes a million times better the following day- so make it a day in advance if you can.

Cinnamon Baked Plantains

Posted From:

We love plantains any way you can make them! Fried, boiled, roasted or baked. This recipe for Cinnamon Baked Plantains is super easy because all you need to do is add some spices and pop the plantains in the oven for 15 minutes. The key to this recipe is the ripeness of the plantains. If you use semi-ripe plantains (minimal blemishes) you can baked them to eat as a starch similar to candied sweet potatoes. If the plantains are very ripe they’ll be sweet and soft and can be turned into a dessert by plopping a scoop of ice cream on top. Either way this recipe is super easy and delicious.
Cooking Tip: Baking plain plantains is a healthier way to cook them than frying. Just lightly coat with cooking oil, place in a baking pan and bake for about 15 minutes, or until soft.
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C)

4 to 5 large Plantains
2 tsp (10 mL) Cinnamon
1/2 tsp (2 mL) Nutmeg
Pinch Salt
1/4 cup (60 mL) Brown sugar
2 Tbsp (30 mL) Cooking Oil

1. Slice plantains in to 1-inch pieces
2. Mix cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and brown sugar together in small bowl; blend well
3. Toss plantains cooking oil and spices until well coated
4. Place plantains on greased baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes of until plantains are soft and golden
