Degustabox May Review and a Summer Cocktail Recipe
This month's Degustabox had a summery feel with some BBQ marinades ready for the bank holiday. Once again the box on the whole was a hit. Here is what we thought of each item:
Sweet Baby Ray's: I used this marinade on some chicken kebabs and my husband actually commented on how much he liked it, so a winner there.
Schwartz marinade in a bag: I have to admit that we haven't got round to trying this yet, but I certainly like the idea. Mainly as it will mean I don't have to scrub a baking tray to get it clean. i will update you when we have tried it.
Maggi: These noodles were lovely - a kind of posh super noodle. My boys found them a bit too spicy by me and my husband both thought they tested good.
9 Bar: I am not a dried fruit person so they weren't for me, but my boys enjoyed them.
Daelmans: Oh my these Stroopwafels are amazing! A real treat. Warm them up on your cup of tea and enjoy.
Sarson's: Who knew Sarson's did balsamic vinegar? I have to admit that we have a lot of balsamic vinegar in the house so I haven't tried this yet. It is the brand I use as my normal vinegar so will be interesting to see if it is good.
Slim Pasta: I used this to make lasagne. I then had to boil some regular pasta to put in its place. The texture and taste were not for me.
Green CoCo: My kids and I aren't keen on coconut juice but do love it in smoothies. This was particularly good in the cocktail I made as it is combined with banana.
Fuel 10K: Tasted much the same as other wheat biscuits I have tried, but have added protein.
If you would like to try Degustabox, then I have a discount code:CWKSI which will give you a £3 discount on your first box.
This cocktail tastes lovely with or without alcohol. All you need is:
2 cups of chopped pineapple
1 kid's coco juice with banana
1 scoop of vanilla ice cream
A shot of malibu (optional)
Simply put all the ingredients into a blender and blitz.
Perfect on a nice summers evening!
