Morning Inspiration: summer edition

Summer Blueberry Smoothie

Great for a hot, sunny morning. Really, I mean r e a l l y easy and r e a l l y delicious breakfast idea.
To make this beautiful and tasty smoothie, you’ll have to take some pre-frozen blueberries (they’ll taste much better if you freeze them by your own than if you buy them frozen at the grocery store) and blend them with oat milk. It will be quite nutritious and very very good!

Frappuccino

Frappuccino

All of us, Coffee Lovers, would drink such a cold, sweet, coffee dessert with pleasure during these long hot days. To assume control of what’s hidden on the inside, I’ve decided to create my own frappe drink at home (I’m sure it’ll be a little healthier then the one ordered in a popular coffee shop).
ingedients:

  • two or three esspresso shots (depends on how strong your frappe you’d like to be)
  • whatever milk you’d like (I’m using a coconut one, it’s fantastic because it adds a bit of a beach flavour by the coconut aroma)
  • ice cubes
  • one scoop of good quality vanilla ice cream
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • cane sugar, if you’d like your frappuccino to be a little sweeter
  • homemade whipped cream
  • sprinkles, jamies, chocolate chips, desiccated coconut or any other thing to scatter the frappuccino over the whipped cream

Start from brewing espresso shots. If you would like to sweeten your coffee drink, it’s the best, to do it right now, when shots are still warm.
Fill your blender with ice and crumble unill it’s very fine.  Add espresso shots and milk. Blend it all together. Add vanilla extract and mix again.
Now, pour the drink into your fancy frappe glass. Put a scoop of vanilla ice cream into the glass. Create a topping with whipped cream and decorate with your sprinkles and chocolate chips.
Put a straw into the glass and voila! Enjoy your delicious coffee drink!

Homemade Iced Tea

All the iced teas together

So yummy and so easy to make! Great for a baking heat of summer days! What is it? Homemamde iced tea!
All you will need is your favourite tea essense, any sweetener you like (you can also prepare an unsweetened version of the drink) and ice cubes. It is also good to add some matching seasonal fruits or mint leaves to make the taste more sophisticated.
In here, I’ve made a few different kinds of iced tea:

  • Hibiscus  unsweetened iced tea with fresh mint leaves
  • Green tea with pickled pear flavouring sweetened with classic white sugar and decorated with red currant
  • White tea sweetened with cane sugar, decorated with blueberries
  • Classic black tea with honey and lemon

Have fun with experimenting with different kinds of tea and addings. Enjoy your drinks!
