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.

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)

tip: 

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.

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.
