Winter Valentine’s Day Smoothie

Smoothie

Valenine’s day is forthcoming and so are some delicious recipes. I was spending a lazy winter afternoon under the blanket with a cup of tea in hand. Then, I had an idea of making something to remind me of summer time, which I miss a lot.
I picked some raspberries, which were frozen in August, and I thought of what I could prepare to make something tasty, fruity and healthy. In the end, I made a smoothie, which is really easy to make and tastes so good.

Ingredients:

  • 200g Raspberries
  • 150g Natural Yogurt
  • tbsp Dried Sweetened Cranberries
  • tsp Honey

All you have to do is to blend out all the ingredients. Also, you can decorate your smoothie to make it look pretty and special. Voila!
Enjoy your tiny bit of summer during cold winter days!

Summer vibe in the middle of Winter

A few days ago, when there was a sunny day in the middle of winter, I got a mango and frozen raspberries. Leaving raspberries to get the room temperature, I cut the mango into pieces and made myself a fruit snack. As I was preparing myself a treat I just couldn’t resist leaving this wonderful view of summer fruits without a picture. The sunshine, warm wind and these fruits made me feel like it was spring already. Such a summer vibe in February made me so happy, I wanted to share this little note with you.

Raspberry Tea

Raspberry Tea

Craving for a hot drink full of delicious sweetness?
Try out my favourite winter recipe!

Choose good quality raspberry tea (if possible, take one with no black tea inside, just fruits and flowers).
Then add pre made raspberry honey, made by putting honey and fresh raspberries into a jar. To make it flavored let it stay for a few days, then reverse the jar upside down and after a few days do the same and turn it upside up 🙂
While adding raspberry honey sirup into your cup do not skip these whole fruits, it adds some extra flavor and makes it look really cute.
That’s basically it!

This raspberry tea is one of my absolute favorite things to drink in winter, also during Christmas time.
