Healthy Chocolate Bites (Raspberry Flavour)

I made healthy chocolate bites today following my usual recipe – I just added in some raspberries to make them raspberry flavour.  Tastes really good!

I love my usual chocolate bites but it is nice to try a different flavour for a change. Lidl sells a nice raspberry dark chocolate. I got the idea for raspberry flavour from that.

I mashed up about 10 raspberries and mixed in with all the other ingredients.

Pear Soup for Sore Throat

My throat was a bit sore so I made this pear soup. According to Chinese medicine pears are good for the throat. They are supposed to get rid of excess heat in the body or something.

To make the soup I just chopped up some pears and put them in a pot with some water and boiled for about 15 minutes. I added some ginger and honey.

After eating this soup my throat felt much better. I highly recommend trying this if you have a sore throat.
