Our chilled mango tea is a bit like a mango lassi. Only rather than using yogurt, we added tea and coconut milk for a little Asian interest—beautiful flavours that can embrace any number of spices, from cinnamon or cloves to mint and cardamom. Explore and experience.
Iced coconut milk cubes can be jazzed up with any number of flavours. Instead of mint leaves, try cinnamon. Or pop a star anise into each cube before freezing.
If fresh mango is not available, you can use 2 cups (500 mL) canned mango purée.
Just the colour of mango is enough to make you feel energized. In the summer season, fresh mango might be a challenge to find. But canned puréed mango is readily available; look for pure mango with no additives.
In small bowl, drain canned coconut milk and whisk to blend. Stir in very small mint leaves and pour into ice cube tray. Freeze.
Brew mint tea and, while still warm, stir in sugar until dissolved. Set aside to cool. Stir in diced mango and cardamom and, with hand-held stick blender, purée until smooth. Alternatively, stir in canned mango purée and cardamom and whirl until smooth. Refrigerate until chilled.
To serve, pour chilled mango tea into tall glasses and add mint-laced coconut ice cube. Top with mint garnish and serve.

This hearty version of traditional sloppy joes has a tidy helping of sleep-aiding dietary fibre, thanks to its payload of smoky lentils. Swapping out the doughy bun for sweet bell pepper ups the nutritional ante and visual appeal. It’s also superb as leftovers. Smoke and fire Chipotle peppers are ripened red jalapeno chiles that have been smoked and dried. In stores, they’re typically sold in a rich, smoky flavoured adobo sauce. They add fiery, complex flavour to sauces used for pasta dishes, tacos, and any version of sloppy joes.
If you’re hungry for a nighttime snack, then spoon up this creamy, sweet-tart yogurt bowl to help promote some sweet dreams. It’s also a great breakfast option with a little granola tossed on top. The cherry compote can be made up to 5 days in advance. Less is more Many people would be surprised by the amount of added sugar that can be found in flavoured yogurts, including vanilla. A healthier option is to select products that are labelled “plain” and then let natural sweetness come from fruit toppings.
For many of us, turkey is a comfort food that recalls happy memories. This stew is one that is comforting both to make and to eat. Simmered slowly over a few hours, turkey drumsticks deliver rich flavour as well as a huge punch of protein. Tarragon gives it a fresh, bright pop of flavour that balances the earthy richness of the stew. Turkey contains high levels of B vitamins and selenium, as well as tryptophan, which has been explored in recent research for its role in the formation of the mood regulator serotonin. Leftover turkey You can also make this dish with leftover cooked turkey. Simply start the recipe by browning the leek and onion and adding stock, carrots, and parsnips. When the vegetables are tender, add cooked turkey and continue with the recipe [object Object]
