I was recently sipping some herbal tea while enjoying a wonderful fruit bread, a slice of Orange bread and having a very quiet enjoyable moment. So I decided to share some beverage ideas that go very well with quickbreads, hope it helps out ^_^
|Cup of coffee-black or white|
We all love a cup of coffee, whether it’s in the morning, break time or even in the evening. Try a slice of Banana bread with some coffee and you’ll be in heaven. You can have it black, with milk or even the instant coffee, it will definitely hit the spot!
2.) BLACK TEA
Another great beverage to have in the morning, one that is especially very popular in Kenya, is black tea. You can have it with milk or black (true tea as we call it – turungi for some, hehe). Enjoy any fruit bread with it and you’ll have the greatest morning ever!
3.) HERBAL TEA
For all you people out there eating healthy, you can enjoy a healthy fruit bread as well, have a slice of Brown Banana Bread while sipping on some herbal tea. My favorite is Chamomile tea or Green tea.
Another popular option I have observed is Lemon tea. Sip on it with our healthy brown Banana bread and have a healthy fresh start to your day!
4.) ORANGE JULIUS
For all those who know what Orange Julius is, you’ll understand when I say I love this drink. For all those who don’t, it’s a kind of smoothie, it’s made of orange juice concentrate, milk, ice cubes and vanilla essence. It’s simply delish. I’ve tried it with Orange bread and it was curiously filling and very tasty! I have the recipe for Orange Julius below ^_^!
5.) HOME-MADE FRUIT JUICE
Once in a while I love to make my own fruit juice at home, I’m sure some of you out there understand. You can make with any fruit you like, passion fruits, oranges, tangerines etc. This home-made juice also goes very well with any of our fruit breads. Try it out!

And last but not least, water! Man’s best friend ^_^ Sometimes you just need to drink some water, whether hot, room temp or with ice cubes; believe it or not, it’s good with any fruit bread. Don’t believe me? Try it out and let me know, you’ll be surprised.
ORANGE JULIUS RECIPE
