I really enjoy participating in contests that gives me an opportunity to display my talents.
Whether I win or lose all that matters to me is that I participated in a contest. there are many who feel bad for loosing a contest but all I look into is what I learnt from my failure. life has taught many of us good things by our failures so did this smoothie contest teach me that kiwi smoothie is different but yet not a very good option.
oasis wellness festival at the oasis center in Dubai is being held from the 8th to 24th November.
There are many activities like the diabetic walk, free RBS check ups and blood pressure checks to create awareness amongst the public and encouraging fitness by many yoga sessions and healthy cooking shows for kids.
The smoothie making contest was one such healthy program.
I always make an avocado or papaw smoothie at home but never have tried a kiwi smoothie.
My husband always did add some fruits that was left at home for example he used to add a banana with another fruit that’s available and make a smoothie.
As a person who is obsessed of masterchef Australia and any other cookery shows I have always dreamt of participating in an invention test.
The smoothie contest was an invention test. as many of the participants selected strawberries dates and cocoa I decided to get some kiwi with banana.
I have never read there was a kiwi smoothie but I prepared it and tasted although the taste was palatable it was not very good for a person who has a sweet tooth like me.
What I learnt from the contest
- yogurt added to a smoothie enhances the flavor and especially with a fruit like kiwi.
- honey is healthier than sugar and equally sweet as sugar.
At the end of the contest I received a complimentary issue of Aquarius magazine November issue.
