This recipe pairs vanilla ice cream with avocado and mint! The combo works like a treat.

Pairing strawberry with orange is exciting but it is even more exciting when that orange is blood orange, a type of orange that has developed its red colour from anthocyanin, an antioxidant. Unlike chocolate, carob powder is naturally sweet, low in fat, contains calcium, and is devoid of caffeine.
The ubiquitous home-made West African ginger drink can be found in most West African cities and towns in creative recycled vegetable-oil bottles. The strength of these West African ginger drinks is not to be sniffed at. They pack a punch and can be served chilled or with ice.
