This morning I wanted to have a healthy breakfast. I love having toasts, avocado, eggs, cold cuts and all the things a should not eat every morning. Long time the chia pudding became popular. I saw pictures and recipes in Pinterest but never wanted to try it because my little sis tried it and said is no good. But I prefer to try it. This morning I had my pineapple and coconut chia pudding. A wanna be tropical chia pudding for these sunny days in Santiago, Chile. Is so easy to prepare 😉
“Pineapple and coconut chia pudding”
140gr pineapple juice
20gr shredded coconut
- In a glass put the chia, milk, pineapple juice. Stir and let the chia absorb all the liquid. I prepared mine one night before. But one hour will be in off to make sure the chia absorbs all.
- After the “pudding” is ready, place the coconut and the fruits you want. I put kiwi and banana to mine! 😀
- Enjoy and start your healthy morning!!!
The fuel for today is ready!!!
The first time I saw it I asked: what is that? and the answer was: a sweet from Middle East made from sesame paste and sugar. Basically that´s all and can found other varieties with nut fruits or fruits. The texture is oily and crumbly. Is a sweet very sweet…
a sweet very sweet… so I recommend take it with tea or coffee. I prefer tea.
In the picture she is cutting my piece jijijijiji…. halva with pistachios 🙂
If you like sugar I really recommend it, if you don´t at least try halva. It worths, I swear!
This halva is from Whole Foods, New York.
La Vega is located at Recoleta commune and is a famous market in Santiago. Fresh fruits, vegetables, fish, meat, flour, sugar are sold there. Thanks to the peruvian inmigration you can also find peruvian products that before used to be very hard to get.
This market is open 4:00 to 19:30. At the opening hours you´ll find chefs and cooks trying to get the best products for their restaurants. At mondays supposed not to be open, but many stores open anyway. If you get hungry you can eat at chileans or peruvian cocinerías there.
I´ve been a bit obsessed with this recipe because the texture is light, rich and I love matcha!
Matcha is a kind of green tea powder, but the leaves are treated very carefully. They cover green tea fields so they grow in shadow and let the plant boost all the benefits that regular leaves used to have. Matcha combats aging, enhances memoranda concentration, build immunity and more. 1 cup of matcha = 10 cup of regular green tea.
Today I bought shredded coconut so I can mix it with matcha recipes! Hope you enjoy the jiggly cheesecake like I do. XOXO!

Trying to clean up my library I found some old food magazines (2003) and making a fast check to the pages I found this recipe, very easy, very fast and roman: “gnocchi alla romana”. First time I made and first time I eat this plate! This gnocchi instead of flour use semolina. Remember, semolina also has gluten.
- 250 gr semolina
- 1 lt whole milk
- 100 gr butter
- 2 egg yolks
- 100 gr of parmesan cheese
- 1 pinch of salt
- 2 pinches of nutmeg (optional)
- 40 gr of parmesan cheese and 20 gr melted butter
- Preheat the oven to 200ºC.
- On a pot bring to boil the milk. Put the 100 gr of butter, pinch of salt and nutmeg.
- After it boils, add the semolina and stir with a wood spoon until it doesn’t stick in the side of the pot. Like in the picture. Remove from the heat.
- Cool down one minute and add the egg yolk until incorporate.
5. Add the 100 gr of parmesan cheese and mix well again.
6. Divide the mix in 3 parts. Roll up one part on a plastic film. Do the same with the second and third part. Keep in the fridge 30 minutes.
7. After 30 minutes, remove the plastic film and cut the rolls in 1 cm.
8. Place the pieces nicely in a buttered baking dish. Pour the 20 gr melted buter over the pieces and sprinkle the 40 gr of the parmesan cheese.
9. Cook 15 to 20 minutes or until the top is golden.
10. Remove and serve.
Una de las cosas que me gusta de volar son las sorpresas de la comida que dan a bordo. A veces buenas sorpresas a veces casi siempre no sé si reír o llorar. En internet dicen que el costo del alimento por servicio en clase económica es de un dólar o menos. Sólo rumores, nada oficial.
En mi vuelo de Santiago con conección en Brasil tuve desayuno y almuerzo.
Me gustó más el desayuno de Avianca Brasil y los sobrecargo de vuelos fueron más simpáticos. El pan de Avianca estuvo frío, pero qué puedes esperar en económico (?). Pero me gustó más que el primero porque me dieron frutas y elección entre un sándwich de jamón y queso o fiambres con queso. Elegí la segunda elección.
Me dieron almuerzo sólo en mi vuelo desde Madrid a Sao Paulo. La buena sorpresa fue que el pan estaba caliente y el sabor de la salsa estuvo bien. También tenían pasta pero nunca elijo pasta a bordo de vuelos. ¿Por qué? Siempre están sobre cocidos. El postre fue una especie de crema de limón (no mousse). Sólo le di una probadita.
