If it has fruit it has to be healthy.. right?

Hello there! So yesterday when I made that delicious water.. I also made some fruit tarts! 🙂

Now fruit tarts are my weakness. I can pass up the ooey gooey chocolate brownies and chocolate pot de cremes

But you put down a fruit tart in front of me and you wont see it again haha.

So I have made these in class and boy did they look pretty… If course I had the correct pan and I also had the glaze

Step 1: so I first started with my tart shell… Now these recipes are from my book that I bought from school

So I will get the tart shell reicpe and type that one up later 🙂

So once your dough is in the frige resting you can move on to..

step 2:start your pasty cream

So this recipe is actually from a small book that my teacher put together and I had to buy for class

So I first gathered all my ingredients

Then I put my cream, vanilla brand and half my sugar in a pot and let come to a boil.

Meanwhile I whisked my eggs and remaining sugar

As soon as my cream reached a boil I slowly incorporated it into my eggs and then put it back over the heat to reach a boil and thicken.

I keep the stove on medium high and whisk continuously to avoid burning and help thickening.

As soon as it thickens, toss into the mixer with a whisk attachment and whisk until cooled

While your cream is cooling go ahead and cut out your dough

I then put the shells into a muffin pan. And baked for about ten minutes.

Once my shells cooled I added some pastry cream and fruit 🙂

So my mom and I have both come to the conclusion that we need to up out water intake to help get us a little on the healthier side 🙂
Now I absolutely love water. So that’s an easy one for me… But my mom? It’s like her sworn enemy. She could go all day without a drink. She we started experimenting with flavored water.
We started with cucumber lemon.. but yesterday… We tried something super special 🙂

Bad picture sorry… But I threw in some oranges raspberries and blackberries.
I let it steep for a few hours tried it.. liked the flavor but wanted something more… So I threw in some pineapple 🙂

And out came this beauty 🙂

I got this fancy little pitcher at Starbucks… I’m sure teevana probably has something of this sort. But its amazing. No seeds in my drink but delicious flavors that’s for sure 🙂
