Summer is the main time we eat fruit in our house. Berries - especially those naturally ripened by the sunshine - are full of antioxidants called anthocyanins to keep our memory sharp (always useful) and our immune system strong (brilliant).
Ice cream is equally as popular in our house during the summer but I can't face buying these sugar laden pots we see in the supermarkets. I make very simple coconut ice lollies which are not only great sources of fat and protein but make use of these lovely summer berries.
All you need is an ice lolly mould and a blender.
The recipe is really simple. In to a blender I put -
1 tin of full fat coconut milk
2 tbsp of protein powder (either a vegetarian one or collagen)
a handful of berries
half a tsp vanilla extract
optional - a date, half a banana, dessicated coconut
Then pour in to the mould and freeze.
Just to let you know I will be in the clinic over the summer but have a few weeks off with my family. I will be away 24th July - 31st August & 21st August - 28th August.
The clinic office will be open throughout the summer.
I also have a new online shop through Nordic Laboratories so you can now easily reorder supplements yourself. I have tried to categorise things as intuitively as possible but if there are items missing or you are struggling to find something please let me know.
You can access it through the "Shop" tab at the top of my website.
Wishing you good health and a bright summer,
