A short walk from the beach through the narrow sandy streets and then you step into @bananahouselamu I found myself actually relaxing here - not thinking about anything apart from the feel of the sun on my skin and hearing the sound of the birds and flies and just wondering how I could get all my friends to experience this place. I did yoga and set by the pool and read, eat fresh food and on occasion dipped my hot feet in the foot bathes dotted around. Although there were other guests, I felt like I had the place to myself. #paradise #lamu#kenya#Shela#bananahouse#eastafrica#findingjay
It's Super Smoothie Saturday again & today it's all about Watermelon! Watermelon is a great summer time snack to eat by itself, in a smoothie or salad! Try out this Smoothie and tell us what you think!! What to get from Cockrell: -Bananas
1.) 3 cups seedless watermelon
2.) 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
3.) 1 banana
4.) 1 tablespoon honey
Would it even be summer without the sweet and sticky juice of Watermelon running down your face?! Nope. But when faced with cutting a giant watermelon, it can be hard to know where to start. Since today is National Watermelon Day, we'd like to show you how!
1. Cut off the ends. Lay the watermelon on a cutting board & trim both ends with a sharp knife.
2. Slice in half. Stand the watermelon up & slice down the middle to create two big halves.
3. Quarter. Lay each half flesh side-down & cut in half again. You'll have a total of 4 long pieces.
4. Make triangles. Turn each quartered piece horizontal & slice into 1inch strips to create triangles. *Don't forget to salt the watermelon before you serve it! It's totally optional, but helps bring out the sweetness.
