Fizzy Lemonade

 

This is not about Queen B, but trust me it is as good. Summer is finally upon us in Berlin, skirts and shorts are out skin and ice cream licking shaded faces are all over the place….

 

I am going to get right into the recipe, this is possibly the easiest  cooling and soothing lemonade recipe, that will really fulfill that fizzy crave that we all get when the temperatures are up.

Ingredients:

1 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice (in Berlin currently there are no available lemons from Europe so i used lemon concentrate from Alnatura which is also good as it is 100/ lemon juice)

1 liter of Sparkling Water (if you cant stomach the fizz than just use still water)

2 Tbsp of Maple syrup (or any syrup you prefer)

1 cup of fresh or frozen berries (whichever berries  you prefer, i used blueberries and strawberries)

A handful of fresh basil leaves or Mint or both

 

Method:

1.place all the ingredients in a jug stir together and enjoy!

p.s If your water is not cold you can use frozen berries which can act as ice cubes.

p.s.s You can also store it in the fridge to cool and enjoy it later. Drink the lemonade within 24 hours so that everything still tastes fresh!

Enjoy!

 

Carrot Apple Ginger Smoothie

 

 

This  is something that i have been loving especially in the colder months as it really gives me a kick in the morning. I am slightly allergic to raw carrots and some types of apple skin -apart from Elstar apples- due to cross pollination, as i suffer terribly from hay fever as well.

However i do try to consume small amounts of raw carrots and apples in my diet to reap their nutrient benefits as well. This smoothie is a great way for me to that.
