Artichokes are said to be very rich in antioxidants which play a vital role in our health and physical actvities. My family has been drinking artichoke tea for as long as I can remember, in fact, a lot of South East Asian countries are familiar with this. Artichokes help our bodies by increasing blood circulation and thus promoting healthy, radiant, younger looking skin. They also aide in digesting and reduce high cholesterol. Not to mention, they're delicious! I love them in dips and cold salads.
I haven't seen any youtube videos on the benefits of artichokes so I went out to buy more artichokes to make a video with my sister. Feel free to watch it. It's very quick and to the point. :)
Artichoke Tea Drink Recipe
Pot of Boiling Water (we never measure)
My Artichoke Drink served cold
We usually wait for it to cool down, add some honey, and put in a the refrigerator. It's such a refreshing drink and it tastes yum!
I also bought some lychee because it's lychee season! It's so good to eat these sweet succulent babies cold on a hot summer day! I like the green ones better than the red ones because they're so much sweeter! I have to limit myself to these though because they give me nosebleeds :(
I love exotic fruits. ^_^ Too bad they contain so much sugar ;/
Some like it juicy ;)
