Hello, you beautiful people out there! It’s a brand new week and a brand new day and I am all excited about it. Most people suffer from Monday blues, especially after the big game night but for me, it’s the most exciting day as it’s my posting day. Talking about the Superbowl last night, we were rooting for the underdogs and their victory was commendable. They beat down the champs. Fly Eagles Fly!!! Now that’s a memorable victory in the history of Superbowl. Little A was supporting the Eagles but couldn’t stay up until the end of the game so he will be super happy to learn his team won. He sure was kicked about Justin Timberlake’s performance during halftime, especially when he sang the Troll’s song. Honestly, I was looking forward to his performance too. Overall it turned out to be an entertaining evening, with friends and lots of food.
Talking of food, we can’t wait to share our new find with you. Pichuberry Puree!!! Have you heard of Pichuberries before? These orange berries are a Peruvian superfruit, that are the size and shape of a grape tomato. Pichuberries are packed with sweet and tart flavors and powerful nutrients like vitamin E, vitamin A, vitamin P, and the B-complex vitamins B1, B6, and B12. Although sweet, Pichuberries have a low glycemic index of 25 and are a powerhouse of antioxidants. By eating only 3 ounces of this power fruit, you’ll meet 37 percent of your daily required vitamin A, 13 percent of your required niacin, 18 percent of your recommended vitamin C, and 39 percent of your vitamin D requirement. (Percent daily values are based on a 2,000-calorie diet.) I have fond memories of enjoying Pichuberries during my childhood days. Back home in India, Pichuberries are known as Rasbhari and are a seasonal fruit in winter. So when I found Pichuberry Puree at my local Walmart, I couldn’t wait to try it. It is available in the Frozen Berry section, where you buy frozen fruit for smoothies etc. I mean how could I resist myself when this Pichuberry Puree is 100% natural, without any sugars of flavor enhancers.
As soon as I got the Pichuberry Puree home, the first thing I opened the packed to taste its delicious flavors. I tell you, I instantly fell in love with how versatile Pichuberry Puree is. It’s like adding a nutritional punch to anything you want! I am looking forward to using Pichuberry Puree to make smoothies, berry bowls, yogurts, muffin mixes, milks or juices! My first experiment with Pichuberry Puree is the Pichuberry Vinaigrette.
Since I wanted the Pichuberry Puree to be the star of my recipe, I made a Pichuberry Vinaigrette to go with my Mexican Black Bean & Corn Salad. This salad comes together very easily. Perfect for a quick lunch or dinner or even as a dip or party appetizer. You can’t go wrong with this. The Pichuberry Vinaigrette totally enhances the flavors of this salad. A burst of flavors and nutrition in every bite.
I have to admit I am in love with these Pichuberry Puree Kits. I even made a mocktail for a couple of my friends and they really liked it. They thought the taste was a combination of passion fruit and cherries. For more nutrition information and recipes check out the Pichuberry website here.
