This summer although it comes to its end was good. Basically, was veery good for me. It was hot as hell too. As you already know, I made sure to say it several times through my summer posts, I kinda hate the extreme heat. My body protests and the only thing that I can do is sit in the thick shade of something and drink something cooling.
Oh and here 3 of my favorite refreshments:
Spicy Watermelon Juice (for 2 servings)
Ingredients: 1 small watermelon, sweet paprika, ginger, pepper, honey, ice cubes
Once you cut and clean the watermelon from its seeds, put it in the blender. In a glass add some ice cubes, half a teaspoon honey, 5-6 shavings of ginger, 2 pinches of sweet paprika and a little ground pepper. Take a straw and you are ready to enjoy!
Water with lemon, blackberries and mintspearmint
(What's mintspearmint? Well, it grows in our yard and it has a mild mint and spearmint flavor. It's genius! If you don’t have this exceptional ingredient, you can add both mint and spearmint or you can choose)
Ingredients: Water, ice, blackberries, lemon, mint and/or spearmint
In a glass with ice add water and in mint and/or spearmint, which you have cut and hit slightly in the mortar. Then add 2-3 thin lemon slices and 1-2 blackberries after drilling them through. Voila, your infused water is ready!
Blackberry and raspberry smoothie (for 1 serving)
Ingredients: 1/2 cup milk, ice cubes, 1/4 cup black berries, 1/2 cup raspberries
Put the blackberries, the raspberries and milk in the blender. Then pour it into a glass with ice and voile !
The summer may comes to its end, but the heat may stay a little bit more, so tell me which are your favorite refreshments?
