Healthy Indian Kheer Smoothie - Vegan Chia and Apple Breakfast Smoothie

Indian Kheer or Payasam is a creamy pudding prepared usually with rice or vermicelli and thick milk. (Milk simmered for a hour or so). It is obviously loaded with calories and sugar. This is my effort to recreate the goodness of that without any sugar and full of healthy ingredients. A couple of things I wanted to add to this was raisins and almond flakes. That would totally complete the pudding. Call it Indian Kheer Smoothie or Chia and Apple Pudding or Chia Breakfast Smoothie. It fits all the bills.

Creamy Hummus - Vegan, Low Fat recipe

The Food Blogger in me misses talking to you all. I started this blog a few years ago as a way of documenting my food journey. I love the interaction with fellow bloggers and readers. Life sometimes takes a different turn and you lose focus in something. I lost a bit of focus in my blog when I started running. It takes up so much of my time, that I struggle to juggle!

Anyways, I am going to make an extra effort to click and post all the new things that are happening in my kitchen. Hope you will join me again as you did the first time I started this journey.

Today's recipe is super simple. We all love a good hummus. Be it in a wrap or sandwich, or as a dip with some breadsticks or crackers. And it is easy to pick up a tub from the supermarket. But trust me, it is easier and definitely healthier to make your own. The key to a creamy hummus is to use the chickpea water .
