During the winter months in South Africa, we see our fruits disappear and we prepare for an overload of comfort food and soups. But this doesn’t mean we should steer away from the fruit section at the grocery store. The winter fruits there are still in abundance, trust us!
Our fruity yoghurt lollies make a healthy summer dessert. The yoghurt is full of calcium for strong teeth and bones, so it’s a great snack option for your kids as well. Make them in empty yoghurt containers, or in shot glasses for mini versions.
Say cheers to the joys of warmer days with the ultimate party-pleasing punch – lush and lovely sangria

Because pastry. Take advantage of the end of the stone fruit season with this gorgeous plum galette recipe that also just happens to be perfect for the beginning of autumn. And this just wouldn’t be a MyKitchen recipe without a surprisingly delicious flavour combo – we are sure our additions of blue cheese and thyme will blow you away.
Since its arrival on the foodie scene, coconut water has been hailed as nature’s own miracle drink. Its wild popularity has led many to question its supposed nutritional value, dismissing the flavoursome water as just another passing health trend. But don’t be fooled. Coconut water is wonderfully hydrating too. The clear liquid found inside young, green coconuts (not to be confused with coconut milk) contains five essential electrolytes: calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, sodium and potassium. You’ve probably heard the claims that this sweet water has anti-ageing, anti-carcinogenic and anti-thrombotic effects, but this hasn’t been proven yet.
That satisfying pop when you bite into an ice-cold grape or that gentle sip of red you take after a long working week, there’s something pretty special about these little round fruit that beautifully dots our country’s vineyards. But besides it’s aesthetics and ability to be turned into a beloved alcoholic beverage, we want to explore the wonderful ways in which we can cook with it. So, get your grapes and we’ll meet in the kitchen!
