Winter melon/Ash gourd/Neer Poosani salad

How to make Winter melon/ Ash gourd/ Neer Poosani salad

           Although, I've been drinking ash gourd juice for a while now & have developed a liking for it. I was delightfully surprised by how tasty & filling this salad turned out to be. I saw this recipe in a cookbook by the Isha foundation which promotes, all natural & healthy food habits for overall well being. If you must know how good this tasted - you should ask my better half, who is an anti-salad kind of guy & still took a second serving of this delicious & healthy salad.

         The ash gourd, coconut & carrots are naturally sweet, the spices add flavoring & salty boiled peanuts make it all the more better. All the fiber in this salad is sure to keep your tummy satisfied. Once you have the ingredients ready, just toss & serve. Taste bhi, Health bhi!!

Frozen Fruit & Yogurt Bars

How to make Frozen Fruit & Yogurt Bars

                 You know how we buy an ingredient for a recipe & you have leftovers. Then we need another recipe to use that leftover ingredient; which calls for more ingredients, so on & so forth...This is one such recipe. I bought some honey graham crackers for the Raspberry French Silk Bars & I noticed this recipe on the back of that box. I immediately knew that, the frozen fruit & yogurt bar was going to be my next dessert. 

                    I was going to have some friends over for dinner & made these bars just in time for them. Our friends liked these refreshing bars & wanted to know how to make them too, before they left. Sharing this delightfully easy & mildly sweet frozen treat with my friends over at Sri Valli's  CCChallenge #30.

Ingredients for 21 bars:

10 & 1/2 Graham (honey) crackers, broken into quarters (42 rectangles) or any similar variety of crisp, square or rectangular cookies/unsalted crackers/biscuits
1/2 cup sliced fresh strawberries
1/2 cup chopped bananas
1/2 cup blueberries
1 cup vanilla Greek-style yogurt
1 cup thawed frozen whipped topping(ex: cool whip)
