Good morning and happy Tuesday!
Since we are in the middle of
Summer Spring, I wanted to serve you something sweet and something fresh. I am not an Ice Cream fan, so my sweet during the warm seasons will still be fruits, chocolate or cake. To wash it all down and get a fresh breeze of spring, I added my favorite Ice-Tea Recipe to it. Watch out.
2 fresh lemons
1 handful of fresh mint leaves
Put 3/4 of the mint leaves in a large pitcher.
Squeeze in the juice of one lemon.
Cook up 2 litres of water.
Once boiling, pour it over the lemon juice and mint leaves.
Decorate pitcher and glass with the other lemon and rest of mint leaves, add ice and enjoy!!
Serve this refreshing drink with a sweet healthy snack. This one is loaded with nutrients and has no added sugar.
PROTEIN BANANA CHOCOLATE MUFFIN
Ingredients for 2 muffins:
1 ripe Avocado
1 small ripe banana
8 small dates, pitted
1 scoop protein powder
2 tsp unsweetened cacao powder
1 tsp baking powder
Cooking spray or 1 tbsp of oil of your choice
Preheat oven to 200° Celsius.
Mix together cacao, protein powder and baking powder.
Mashmix the banana, dates and avocado.
Beat the eggwhites until fluffy.
Toss everything together and blend until smooth.
Grease to mugs, muffin bowls or a muffinsheet with cooking spray or with the oil.
Pour in the muffinmix and bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes. Check with a knife – if it comes out clean, muffins are done.
