Loving All Things Cold

Hi guys! Am I right in thinking your all super happy that Friday came round so quickly and its the weekend again?! Well who wouldn't be, I know I am as always I do have to work tomorrow but I love my days in the shop so complaining here. 

The past few days even though the weather has not been that bright it has been quite muggy and I have found myself loving all this cold especially a yummy smoothie but that is no surprise is it! So as I am popping in late I thought I would keep this post short and sweet with 3 things that are cold, delicious and made for making the tastebuds dance! 


No surprises that first up is a delicious smoothie, like sunshine in a bowl that would please anyone, well anyone that knows healthy tastes good! I made this smoothie yesterday for breakfast and it was the bomb so here is the recipe if you would like to try it:

Blueberry and Wheatgrass Smoothie

Ingredients:

2 small bananas
1/2 pack frozen blueberries
1 cup non-sweetened almond milk
1 Tbsp tahni
1Tbsp wheatgrass powder
(water if you like a thinner smoothie)

Put everything in a blender and whizz it up! 
Top with seeds/nuts of your choice if eating from a bowl like me, and enjoy! 


Next is a blended americano! OMG this took my black coffee to a new level, I have only ever had iced coffee the normal way i.e coffee with ice cubes in it...then today I had a blended one and well what can I say I will be drinking my coffee like this from now on! It makes the coffee taste so sweet without adding anything, I actually asked the girl if she had added anything else but no just coffee and ice! Sorry to any of you that have been drinking this for ages but its all new to me and I am in love!


Finally when I got home from work I had a special parcel waiting for me, a copy of Aimee's,  Wallflower Girl, new coconut milk ice cream recipe book!!!!!! I am so excited to be reviewing this book, I have taken a look through and everything looks and sounds awesome so look out for my review coming soon you won't be disappointed! 

Question:

What cold thing are you loving right now?

  2. I love mixing up frozen bananas with some other frozen fruit and topping with hemp seeds and cacao nibs for an 'ice cream' treat. The ice+ coffee blended is something I've never tried. Definitely next on my list- thanks for the suggestion!
