You know when summer hits and you suddenly crave everything related to summer? The music, the summer hangouts, the everlasting nights, the sea, the summer drinks, THE FOOD. Living in Japan it can be quite hard to satisfy my fruit addiction (if I don’t want to bankrupt myself in a couple of weeks). This summer I was craving fresh peaches, you know when you can smell how sweet and juicy they are by just walking by? Something a lot of people connect summer with is ice cream. The Japanese people love their soft serve, which you can actually see being munched on all year around. Since I’m allergic to milk and also being vegan (for health reasons), I can’t really remember when I ate “real” ice cream the last time. I’m one of those people who love a sweet taste, my whole sets of teeth are probably “sweet teeth”. That’s why I Love Banana Nice Cream. Yep, it’s as nice as it sounds. Just chop up some bananas, freeze them and then mix them together in a blender or with a hand mixer. You can add whatever flavor you want: some strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, cacao, flavored stevia drops or coconut sugar (for a caramel kinda flavor). The best thing is that you can eat it anytime of the day, even for breakfast! I mean if I could, I would eat ice cream and sweets all the time….But hey, maybe that’s just me.
What do you crave during the summer months?
Enjoy the last weeks of summer!
