10 DIY Body Scrub Tutorials That&rsquoll Leave Your Skin Soft and Glowy

I&rsquoll be real with you: Until recently, DIYs were never really my Thing. I mean, all that ingredient mixing and recipe following for a skincare product I don&rsquot even need? Nah, I&rsquom good. It wasn&rsquot until I started seeing so many DIY body scrub tutorials on YouTube though, that I realized homemade exfoliators are pretty effing genius. Most of &rsquoem are super-easy to make (like, throw-everything-into-a-jar easy) and typically only require a few ingredients that you definitely already have in your kitchen (think: sugar, salt, coffee).

And as long as you aren&rsquot using them on your face (gritty scrubs can create literal micro tears in your skin!), DIY body exfoliators are a great way to slough off your dead skin cells on your legs, arms, and back for softer, brighter-looking skin. Just make sure you&rsquore using them sparingly (once a week max) and always follow up with a heap of moisturizer. Down to give one a try? Keep reading for the absolute best DIY body scrubs, including recipes for dry patches, dull texture, and muuuch more.


Here are 4 amazing reasons to eat more mangoes this season:

1. Lowers cholesterol: Mangoes contain fiber, pectin and vitamin C which help in lowering the bad cholesterol. It also contains potassium which helps in controlling blood pressure and maintaining the heart rate.2. Remedy for skin problems: Mangoes are a great source of beta-carotene which helps in promoting healthy and glowing skin. Beta-carotene gets converted into Vitamin A in our body which protects the cells from damage. Vitamin A also helps in improving the eyesight. Mango pulp is rich with vitamin c, which can be applied to the face to make it soft and supple.


Mango Tonic

We're going to put a mango spin on one of our favorite happy hour cocktails. The vodka tonic is a great drink, but when you're in the mood for something a little more interesting, simply add mango.

The mango tonic can be made with either mango nectar or mango liqueur. For the latter, opt for a bottle from Bols or Marie Brizard Mango. Pair that with your preferred vodka and tonic water. It's a nice balance of sweet fruit against dry sparkle, making it great for a meal.


Mango Nutrition Facts

Mango (aam) isn't just about the luscious texture and mouth-watering flavour, it also boasts of a number of health benefits that would give you just another reason to indulge in the delicious summer fruit. While excess of anything might not be a good idea, even if it is a mango, one can keep a healthy balance by eating in moderation. Mangoes are packed with a good amount of vitamin A and C, besides being rich in calcium, potassium and phosphorus. As per United States Department of Agriculture, a 100 gram of mango packs about just 60 calories and is perfect to include in your summer diet.

With all that flavour and health benefits, you'll be surprised at how versatile this fruit is. There are a lot of easy mango recipes that you can prepare at home. While aamras, mango salads and pickles are done to the core, unique mango desserts have taken over the summer season. For a dessert lover like me, it is a delight to relish ambrosial mango desserts that are also easy to prepare at home. From mango pudding recipes and healthy mango recipes to blissful panna cotta and kheer, we've got it all to please your taste buds.


How to make Cosmopolitan Cocktails

Just pour everything into a cocktail shaker filled with ice, shake well to chill, then strain into a martini glass.

The classic garnish is orange peel. The extra little fragrance you get as you drink the Cosmopolitan drives home the orange flavour and is really lovely!

Atomic Pork Sliders with Mango Sauce

Juicy little grilled pork burgers topped with sweet mango sauce and infused throughout with atomic flavor.

This post is sponsored by Sweet Sunshine Sauces. All opinions are my own.

Beginning today, I am teaming up with Sweet Sunshine Sauces to bring you summer time recipes each Wednesday through the rest of the month of July. This is the first in the series, and we are kicking it off with a bang!

For this recipe, I am using the Sweet Sunshine Atomic sauce.

To begin, measure out 3/4 of a cup of frozen mango chunks and let them thaw. Set aside for now.

Next you will need a pound of ground pork and an egg. Place the ground pork in a mixing bowl.

In a small bowl, whisk the egg until smooth, and add to it 2 tablespoons of Sweet Sunshine atomic sauce. Whisk those together.

Pour the egg mixture all over the pork.

Sprinkle in a half cup of panko bread crumbs. Gently mix this together with your hands until just combined.

Divide the pork mixture into 6 equal portions. Form each portion into a small patty with a nice little thumb indentation in the center. Place all the patties on a plate and refrigerate for a little bit while you heat your grill to 400 degrees and prepare the mango sauce. This chilling period helps the patties hold up and not fall apart when you put them on your grill.

For the sauce – place your thawed mango in your blender. Add in the juice of half a lime.

Additionally, add in a tablespoon of honey and 2 tablespoons of cilantro.

Finally, add in a tablespoon of the Sweet Sunshine atomic sauce. Blend these together until smooth. Set the sauce aside while you grill the sliders.

Grill the patties about 4 minutes on each side, or until a meat thermometer reads 170 degrees when inserted in the center.

Grab a small roll – I used cut pretzel rolls – add a layer of torn lettuce and a pork patty. Drizzle on some of your lovely mango sauce.

Top with the other part of the roll and serve.

Sweet Sunshine Sauces are the creation of Paul Sarris and have 62 International awards including the 2014 Scovie Award.

Brothers Paul and Van Sarris inherited their love of cooking and great food from their father, James. Their dad would tell them, “Any fool can make something hot, the trick is to make it delicious” which lead to their motto “Flavor Before Fire.”

I must say that my husband is a huge fan of heat, and I am a huge fan of flavor. The Sweet Sunshine “Atomic” sauce has both. Great heat for my hot sauce-addicted husband, and great flavor for the more particular me!

This kulfi tastes 100% authentic:

My today’s mango kulfi is a recipe which is not made with the very authentic way my Mom used to make back in those days. But this tastes 100% authentic.

This is how I got this kulfi recipe:

One day when I had some mangoes at home, I called my mom to ask about her kulfi recipe. She asked, “Do you want to make it the instant way or old-fashioned way?”

I: “But you only make the old-fashioned way.”

Mom: “Not anymore. It’s been a couple of years now since I have been making mango kulfi recipe this instant way. I got this recipe from one of my friends and I never looked back. This instant version is slightly different from the authentic style kulfi which calls for boiling the milk over slow heat for sometime. You don’t visit us during summer now, that’s why you don’t know”.

I: “Which way would you prefer?”

Mom: “Instant way. There is no fuss. No cooking needed. You only need 10 minutes to make this kulfi. And it tastes fabulous.”

I: “Alright, then. Give me the recipe.”

And this is how I got this simplest yet most creamy and luscious mango kulfi recipe. This is a shortcut method of making mango kulfi using cream, milk, sweetened condensed milk and fresh mango puree, or mango pulp.

Effortless, and delectable:

I instantly made the first batch right after I asked for the recipe, and even with this quick and instant way, the kulfi results were so amazingly good. My Mom was so right, this mango kulfi is absolutely no cook. And you only need few ingredients and 10 minutes to make this.

I must say that mango kulfi is surely one of the best ways to use a batch of ripe mangoes. This mango kulfi has a rich and creamy texture with an unsurpassable mango flavor. These kulfis are definitely a treat — so worth it. Simple and delicious.

Nostalgia:

Whenever I see the mangoes, their aroma enchants all my senses. When it happens that you have a fair share of nostalgia associated with mangoes, it is quite impossible to leave without buying some. You just can’t resist the smell, the touch, and the taste.

If you also love mango ice cream , mango lassi or other mango treats using dairy then you would definitely love this kulfi. Make it for summer get-togethers and get ready to win some outstanding compliments.


Peach Mango Cosmo

I grew up in Connecticut, and I go back there once a year to visit with my family. My bother and one sister still live there – another sister from Alabama will usually join us for this “reunion”. We like to spend time together visiting, laughing, shopping, cooking and eating, and enjoying refreshing beverages together! One of my favorites was discovered on one of these trips home several years ago. It is this Peach Mango Cosmo.

We were at “Charley’s”, one of our favorite restaurants, while shopping at the Crystal Mall. That’s where this cocktail originated. They were also known for their “pizza salad” – an amazing dish that I ordered every single time I went there! (I’ll have to cover that one in a future post!) Combine that – with this cocktail, and I was in heaven! Sadly, Charley’s has since closed. Thankfully, that was not the end of this cosmo! I was able to get the exact recipe during one of my trips home, so have been able to duplicate this drink over and over again. Would love to share it here!

You MUST find Parrot Bay Mango Rum – in order to get the exact flavor that makes this cocktail so good! I say this, as I have tried to use other brands of mango rum, and trust me – it’s just not the same! I had to order this online, but it is available in some liquor stores.

1 oz. Parrot Bay Mango Rum
1 oz. Vanilla Vodka
1 oz. Cranberry Juice
1/4 oz. Monin Peach syrup (you can substitute Peach Schnapps for this ingred. – without changing the flavor)

Add to ice-filled shaker, and shake til very cold. Pour into your favorite martini glass. Garnish with a peach slice.
