Summer Recipes

Fruity Homemade Ice Lols!

 Ingredients

• 1 cup of yogurt of a flavour of your choice, we like vanilla!
• 1 banana
• 3 cups fresh or frozen summer fruits, raspberries are lovely
• A drizzle of honey
• Craft sticks

Preparation

 

berry pops

1. Process yogurt and banana in a blender 30 seconds or until smooth. Bring raspberries and honey to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat; reduce heat to low, and simmer 5 minutes. Pour mixture through a fine wire-mesh strainer into a bowl, using back of spoon to squeeze out juice and pulp. Discard skins and seeds. Cover and chill raspberry mixture 30 minutes. Pour yogurt mixture evenly into 10 (2-oz.) ice lolly moulds. Top with raspberry mixture, and swirl, if desired. Top with lid of lolly mould, and insert craft sticks, leaving 1 1/2 to 2 inches sticking out of pop. Freeze 6 hours or until sticks are solidly anchored and pops are completely frozen.

2. Tip: For a different taste, substitute 3 cups fresh or frozen blueberries or halved strawberries.

Southwestern Black Bean Salad (originally found here)

This salad is great for numerous reasons: the ingredients are incredibly cheap, it's healthy and easy to make. It can be teamed up with pita bread; the longer you leave it marinating the more flavourful it becomes so it's improved by a night in the fridge. It also tastes good with chopped orange bell pepper or quinoa.

• 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
• 9 oz frozen (or canned) corn, thawed
• 1 tomato, chopped
• 1 avocado, chopped
• 1/4 cup red or white onion, diced
• 1 spring onion, chopped
• 1 lime, juice of
• 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
• 1 tbsp coriander, chopped
• salt and fresh ground pepper
• Mexican chilli powder, a few pinches
