CHURROS

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of water
  • 2 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • A pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp of vegetable oil
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 quarts frying oil
  • 1/3 cup of dusting sugar

Instructions

  • In a pot, boil the sugar, water, salt, and vegetable oil. Bring to a boil, then take off the heat.
  • Add in the flour. Mix until a dough ball forms.
  • Heat the oil in a deep-fryer or in a frying pan (it has to get really hot—375° Fahrenheit or 190° Celsius. Anything lower will make an oily mess). Add pipe strips of your dough through a pastry bag, or pastry syringe.
  • Fry until golden brown and place them on paper to drain the excess oil.
  • Dust with cinnamon and dusting sugar when slightly warm.
  • For the chocolate sauce: Melt 150 g of semi-sweet chocolate with 4 tbsp of butter and a pinch of salt, in a double boiler. Mix in 1/4 cup of heavy cream, 1 tbsp of vanilla and 4 tsp of chili powder. Whisk until well-incorporated.

PEACH SMOOTHIES

Ingredients

  • A can of peach halves
  • 100 g of frozen strawberries
  • 100 ml orange juice
  • 150 ml of your favorite yogurt

Instructions

Drain peaches. Blend everything together with four ice cubes. Garnish with some fresh strawberries.
