Summer is – or should be – the season of sunshine and warm sticky weather. Long evenings spend with friends on a terrace sipping on a cold glass of wine. BBQ’s and the smell of woodfire coming from neighboring gardens. It should be the season where you wear as little clothes as possible and/or decent. The season where you’ve got to worry if your love-handles haven’t taken over your waist or if it is still worth salvaging…The season where the entire country wants to be on the tiny strip of land we call beach, resulting in massive (and I mean massive) traffic jams all the way from everywhere to the coast… The season you lie in bed and every single thread of fibre on your body is too much to handle. The season where you wake up because the light entering the bedroom is too bright to be ignored. That’s what summer should be more or less, right?
But while I am typing this down it is raining cats and dogs outside (always loved that expression!) and the wind is howling around the house. It looks more like autumn then summer although the temperatures in the house are still of summery proportions. We did have quite a few nice and sunny days really, so I am not complaining… Just stating the obvious. You’ve got to know too that I actually love rain… I think there is nothing more soothing then a downpour of some kind. But.. having said that; all in their own time ofcourse. Rain is for autumn and winter and ok, a little in spring. But summer is supposed to be hot and sunny so we can indulge on lovely treats like this raspberry yogurt popsicle. Which is actually very healthy too as it has almost no sugar, lots of healthy yogurt and fruit! The perfect guilt free summer snack.
The recipe comes from Allerhande which is a food magazine here made by one of the supermarkets…They had loads of other popsicle flavors but basically you can add almost anything to it, freeze it and it will come out tasting delicious. I’m planning on making loads more! That is… if the weather gets any better…
