Hello summer heat. When the days start at totally unnatural temperatures and you still want your morning coffee these are the tasty solution. You need a really good quality almond milk for this recipe as anything too thin won’t have the same flavour or effect. You can sweeten the almond milk with a date or maple syrup – or leave it unweetened and let the bitterness of the coffee break through. If you wouldn’t normally sweeten your coffee then don’t sweeten this!
This is a refreshing, easy and nutritious summer dessert. Or snack for that matter. It’s dairy, gluten and sugar free and maximises that fresh strawberry flavour. That flavour is enhanced by both the freshness of lime and the lingering vanilla flavour. You could leave the vanilla out but I think it’s what takes this to the next level, from frozen snack to dessert.
This smoothie is both tasty and pretty. And full of the good stuff of course! You can use your preferred milk but almond or oat would both be delicious choices. The marbled effect is easy to do and makes for a pretty finish. We eat with our eyes first and I find the nice my food looks the more mindful I am when eating it.
Is there anything better on a cold afternoon than a cup of frothy creamy, chocolatey goodness? Yes. Yes there is. If you add chilli and cinnamon to it. This recipe is uber simple and easy. It can be made with dairy milk or almond milk, but not the dodgy almond milk that’s really watery either make your own or use a good quality rich and creamy version. The hint of chilli makes this extra warming and is just enough to leave some residual heat in your mouth. I promise this is good.
