Mamarazzi Barmy Homemade Barley Drink With Stevia

Late to blog again today. This morning woke up early to send Ah Kong and Ah Mah to airport. Still early thought can go eat breakfast geh but it seems to be just not my day. Go Dim Sum shop ..not open..go KFC, closed for monthly spring cleaning. 

Go mamak.. ordered maggi sup TAK MAU PEDAS...they gave me maggi curry.....hence kept sipping milo ice while trying to eat.

Papa bought me a can of cold chrysanthemum tea . When Mamarazzi got home she thought..hmm...why not make barley drinks . Its cooler. 

Went to the garden and plucked some Pandan leaves. Add a packet of barley into the pot.



We have quite a lot of aloe vera in the garden. Got some and sliced it. Throw into the pot.


The thing is...Papa doesn't take sugared drinks if he can. And both Mamarazzi and me likes our drinks sweet. How? She recall that she have a packet of dried Stevia leaves. Ok..opened and throw a handful of it into the pot. Boiled for about an hour. 






Put into the fridge to chill. End result quite good. Taste a bit like boiled sugarcane drink. Cooling.

Okay la...happy weekend to you. School gonna be out soon. Mamarazzi is waiting outside while blogging!

  18. Even though we have Spring here now---our weather is not hot enough for any 'cooling' drinks yet... Once the Summer gets here and it is very hot, I'm sure we will enjoy a drink like yours then.

    Hugs,

  22. Don't use sugar is good. If no stevia leaves, next time can boil without sugar and then later add syrup to just a glass of barley drink when Small Kucing wants to drink it so that Paparazzi can also drink the without sugar barley in the pot.

    ReplyDelete

    1. syrup is also from sugar unless it's stevia syrup la
