Our Favourite Things About Summer

Elliots supa healthy smoothie

Hello & Happy Summer!

Summer has well and truly arrived here in Ireland and it makes us so happy.
We love all the seasons with their own flow and characteristics but summer wins for the warmth, brightness and colour. We love the bird song, the heady scent of blossoms wafting in light breezes, the bright clashing colours of all the blooms, the hottest days that lead to long balmy evenings, fresh salad dinners, light easy dressing, sand between our toes, salty chips by the sea, the fruits of the season strawberries, watermelon, bright orange sunsets, long icy drinks and cooling ice lollies. 

We are a big fan of making our own smoothies here and getting your kids involved is a great activity during these hot summer days. Elliot (Suzanne's son) has come up with his own supa delicious smoothie which can also be used to freeze in ice lolly moulds. 

The recipe is below but we also have a free download of the recipe to keep, illustrated by Suzanne & Elliot.

Enjoy the sunshine & smoothie. Elaine X
