Gosh, I am not sure if I am the only one on the side of the equator that is over the heat already. Struggling to keep cool (Sadly, I don’t have air conditioning), turning on the stove to cook, is the last thing on my mind.
Luckily these few guilt-free food options that are prepared in all of a few minutes with little mess, are my main sustenance right now. So get out your hand blender and be prepared to keep your cool:
Guilt Free, Yummy Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream
1 or 2, Frozen bananas
A dash of vegan milk
A tablespoon of nut butter
A tablespoon raw cacao
Option items: Goji berries, a pinch of Cinnamon, Coconut milk/ cream, Cacao nibs, vanilla essence.
Put in the blender and enjoy!
I know, this recipe was in a recent post on the benefits of cooking with herbs, yet, worth adding again:
Frozen Pea & Avocado Soup
Cup of frozen peas, few leaves of Spearmint, a few slices of onion, half an avocado, cup and half of almond milk and a grind of Himalayan rock salt + Black pepper. Blend ingredients in food processor and enjoy! (it’s like a healthy pea avocado ice cream).
On top of this, I’ve been keeping some Grapes in the Freezer, perfect snacks. Eating plenty of Fresh Fruit.
And keeping hydrated with my favourite Beverage: Iced Tea
I’ve Been drinking Sensado’s Bodyguard Tea – but any herbal blend will work. It is easy to prepare. Just boil it up. Once it’s cooled put it in a bottle, and keep it in the fridge. I love adding a few ice cubes and slices of Lemon or Orange.
Strangely, I used to be a complete beach person, and loved the heat – now here I am secretly wishing away my summer. With today being a lovely 38 degrees, I am going to use this as the perfect excuse to go and make myself more ice cream.
So, how are you keeping cool??
