Smoothies are undeniably one of my favourite things about summer. Fresh, delicious and healthy, work perfectly as a fix for my sweet tooth. Amongst all the smoothies there’s one I love more than any other. The classic, the one and only, strawberry and banana milkshake.
Of all summer recipes there are two that belong to this season the most. The first one is ice cream – something I’m yet to attempt – and the second are ice cubes. You could say that ice cubes don’t need a recipe – you just freeze some filtered water and that’s it. And that’s true, you don’t need a recipe, but you can use one for a nice, fancy result.
I love seasonal summer fruits. Who doesn’t? Winter gets so boring when the only fresh, tasty, widely available fruits are apples and bananas. That’s why in summer my each trip to a supermarket ends with some fresh fruits in my bag, and a few days later I have a bunch of very ripe fruits that need to be used as soon as possible. And what’s the best way to use ripe fruits? Making a smoothie, of course.
Summer is undoubtedly the best season for smoothies of all kinds. Whenever I have an abundance of ripe fruits that need to be eaten asap, I like to throw them all in a blender and enjoy a fruity drink. In all honesty, it doesn’t matter what fruits you use. I haven’t yet come across a combination that wouldn’t work! However, I know that when it comes to mixing fruits with milk – or to be more specific, bananas with milk – the opinions are heavily split. There are those who can’t even bear the thought of drinking a banana milkshake and there’s also the second group that I’m in – those who live for milk with bananas!
Tea. One of the most popular beverages in the world. Some might even call it boring for that very reason. But is it really? Yesterday, I posted a recipe for mulled tea, perfect to warm up this cold winter season. Today, let’s have a look at some interesting facts and legends about tea, that you might have never heard about!
Christmas may be over, but winter certainly is not! In fact, it looks like it’s only just begun in my country – the temperature dropped from around 10°C at Christmas to -5°C last night. So although Christmas is now far in the past, the season for mulling whatever’s in our eyesight is still going strong. So I got that idea – what if I tried to mull some tea? I quickly jumped into action, and here’s the result!
