Fruit punch & pumpkin

Hello everyone!
Today I am sharing two autumn style recipes with you all, that I have been LOVING! One is a drink and the other is a snack/dessert. They are both vegetarian as well so no worries my fellow vegetarians or vegans. Haha 

Now for the drink, it is a homemade style hot fruit punch. I know that for example guavas are not typically sold in Canada haha because I gave this recipe to one of my Canadian friends, but no worries! It can still be made.

-1 medium pot
-FRUIT!- 3 guavas, 3 apples, 2 oranges (rinse)
-2 Sugar cane, YES! the real kind because it is the best sweetener for this drink and is a fruit as well *optional*
-1 medium stick of cinnamon
-Small handful or spoonful of Jamaican/flower leaves *optional*
-Brown or white sugar

Step 1: Pre-heat your pot with 2 liters of water to medium heat
Step 2: Let it boil and add the stick of cinnamon and Jamaican leaves
Step 3: Wait 5 minutes and add the fruit
Step 4. Wait 10 minutes and check if fruit is soft
Step 5: Then add 1/4 cup of sugar or to taste
Step 6: Stir
Step 7: Turn off heat and wait 15 minutes before drinking

Now this next recipe can be enjoyed as a dessert, snack, or however the heck you want. In many places like puerto Rico it is known as ''Calabaza de Castilla'' which basically translates to pumpkin of Castilla. I've been having it when I'm all snuggled up checking emails and my social media at night haha The best! Well lets get started!


-3 lbs pounds of orange squash
-Medium pot (about 30'')
-2 liters of water
-2 "panela", ''piloncillo'' or brown sugar loafs- I KNOW SO MANY NAMES :-) So this is basically a Mexican type of sugar. It can be found in the Hispanic section of most stores like Walmart if you live in the U.S

Step 1: Cut the squash into pieces about 4-5 or whatever you'd like
Step 2: Rinse it and then put it in the pot
Step 3: Pour the 2 liters of water inside the pot
Step 4: Heat the pot at medium heat to boil
Step 5: When boiling place both of the sugar loafs inside the pot
Step 6: Let it cook for about 25 minutes, then check if it is soft
Step 7: Let it sit for 30 minutes before eating


So I hope you all enjoyed these recipes or even decide to make them today which is Thanksgiving if you live in the U.S. I can't express how thankful I am for each and everyone of you that supports me. Weather you follow my blog, comment, are subcribed to my YouTube channel, or follow me on Twitter, Instagram, & Tumblr. I appreciate it very much. I am also very thankful for God & his blessings, my family, friends, and last; but not least the basics of life that we should all enjoy.. internet, music, water, a home, and simply being able to breathe. I hope you all have a wonderful & fun day!

Be fearless & smile!
