Air Fried Biscuits and Cocoa Tea

Welcome back to #SummerGamesWeek!  Today I am going to share a little about the St. Lucia Olympic team and a traditional St. Lucian breakfast with a little twist.

Cocoa tea, not really "tea" so to speak, is a traditional breakfast in St. Lucia.  St. Lucia is known for its locally grown cocoa. It's not a thick and creamy hot cocoa but a warm concoction that you will love for its chocolatey goodness.  In St. Lucia, you would purchase a "stick" of cocoa that you would shave into the pot.  If you are in the USA, you could use raw cocoa powder.  

St. Lucia's Olympic Team

St. Lucia started sending athletes to the Olympics in 1996.  They only compete in the Summer games, and have never brought home a medal. They are expected to compete in Athletics, Sailing and Swimming.  The team consists of Levern Spencer, high jump, her fourth appearance, Stephanie Deveau-Lovell and Luc Chevrier, sailing, Maikili Charlemagne, swimming, 50 meter freestyle and Jean Luc Zephir, 100 meter freestyle.  This rounds out the team.  Best wishes for bringing home a medal!

How to make air fryer biscuits

Remove the refrigerated biscuits from the can.
Place the biscuits in the basket or tray of your fryer.
Air Fry biscuits at 330F/165C for 9-10 minutes. 
Flip the biscuits over, halfway through the cooking time. 
(Be sure to check the biscuits in the last few minutes to see if you need to adjust the cooking time.)
Carefully remove the biscuits and serve with jam or gravy. Enjoy!

  1. When in Granada they sold cocoa balls to make their "tea". Great idea using the air fryer for the biscuits.

    I've never air fried biscuits before, but now that I have, this is the only way to eat them! These were so flaky and delicious! I like to pair these with a sweet strawberry jam for a good breakfast snack.

  5. The cocoa looks so comforting and this is just a perfect snack.
