I can’t hold back any longer – we’re now a whole week into the month of May which only means one thing to me. Summer is almost here! Okay, so I live by the sea on an island where it’s pretty warm and sunny all the the time. (I’m not bragging, just giving you some context!) But there’s just something about the actual summer season that makes lazy days at the beach, sunbathing by the pool and enjoying fancy cocktails on the patio so much more fun when I know the rest of the world (or most of the northern hemisphere, anyway) is sharing it with me, you know? And if there is one flavour that screams summer more to me than any other flavour out there, it’s got to be lime!
You know what I’m really getting into? Mocktails. I’m not drinking them instead of regular cocktails (like that would ever happen!) but I’m drinking them throughout the day as a way of livening up the ordinary still water that I usually drink. And whilst I’d always opt for the alcoholic version if it’s a weekend, a non alcoholic strawberry mojito is awesome to sip at my desk during the working week.
Drum roll please – this is the very first mocktail recipe I’ve ever posted on Pink Recipe Box! Like I said last week, I’m still on a bit of an alcohol detox, so instead of sharing my customary cocktail recipe with you this Friday, I thought I’d share a healthier lower-calorie virgin mojito recipe that’s just as good as the original. And here it is!
It’s Monday morning. The start of a new week and the start of a new day. If you’re not a fan of Monday mornings (who is?!) this healthy breakfast recipe is for you. Loaded with oats to keep you full until lunch time, chia seeds to keep you in fighting-fit condition and fresh, fruity tastes to remind you that it’s June 1st and summer is here! If there ever was a time for this overnight oats recipe, it’s Monday morning.
I’ve just discovered something new and amazing and I need to tell you about it! Well, it’s probably not new or really that amazing to you, but it is to me – agua fresca! Up until a couple of weeks ago, I’d never tried a single agua fresca recipe. I don’t drink fizzy drinks at all – unless they’re spiked with a bit of vodka – I always stick to boring old water, which I’m perfectly happy with.
