Alternative title: So the UK has been experiencing a heatwave recently…What the heck is up with that?! Oh wait…Hang on…I think I hear thunder.
So the UK is actually a bit confused as to what it wants to do…During these months it usually likes to have plenty of beautiful sunshine between the hours of, say, 9am – 5:30pm Monday to Friday (oh yeah, the joke is well and truly on me there!) and then the heavens open with various treats ranging from drizzle to thunderstorms (complete with torrential downpour) to “holy balls it’s hailstone the size of my head!”
So yeah, if I’m to believe the rumours currently circulating around the office, it is actually quite a hot Summer we’re having. Then again, this is coming from people who have windows to look out of while daydreaming about skipping through fields of freshly cut grass to “The Hills are Alive“…
Anyway, whether it is sunny or not, it is still Summer…And when Summer shows up, so do the short-shorts, moobs, beer garden disasters and squits from BBQ food. Ah bliss, I hear you shriek…
Not quite I say…Because you’re missing something.
Something very freaking important.
You’re missing ice-lollies of fresh fruit, nut butter variety.
Oh yes ladies and gents…Get your chops around these beauties:
Makes 4 ice lollies (and 1 small smoothie):
2 ripe bananas
Top up with coconut water (approx 380ml) – I’m using Innocent Coconut Water for this.
Slice the strawberries and bananas and place them into a jug…
Add the rest of the ingredients…Then blitz!
Pour the mix into the ice lolly moulds (this was approximately 400ml for mine), add the tops and bob in the freezer until set!
How is Summer treating you lovely lot?
PS – “Hannibal” … That is all…
