I love this colour…

Instead of ice cream today we enjoyed milkshake to cool us a little. The pitiless heat of over 30°C persists. So drink a lot. But does it always have to be water? Today we opted for milkshake and that was refreshment and colour therapy in one, because it’s PURPLE.

Blueberry milkshake


preparation time:

ca. 5 minutes





ingredients for ca. 1 l:


200g frozen blueberries
800 – 1000 ml milk, you can also use plant-based milk like oat or rice milk for the lactose free version
1/2 of a banana that’s still a little green (if you react to histamine very easily you can omit the banana)
4 tbsp. maple syrup (if you have a sweet tooth you can use more)
pinch of cardamom



Blend all the ingredients. (That’s it)



Depending on what you like and on what you can tolerate you can use different fruits. I can imagine that blackworries, gooseberries or currants would also work fine.

If you have friends or family over you can add 5 to 6 strawberries to the mix, but then it will not be so “histamine suitable” anymore. My “histamine bothered” boyfriend had the blueberry-banana-mix. I went for the plus-strawberries-version. To make that I stole some of the basic mix and added strawberries to blend it again.




Feel refreshed!

Perfect on days like this one…

The thermometer shows more than 30 °C already. It’s ice cream season again. Therefore we made ice cream pancakes here. I’ve gathered some info on ice cream here.
