Cooling-down with a Smoothie-on-a-stick

Not only in Singapore the temperatures are climbing up to 35 degrees, but also in my hometown Zurich people are sweating like crazy. These temperatures scream for ice cream! Instead of reaching for the sugar and cream loaded vanilla and chocolate ice cream, try my smoothie-on-a-stick or how people call them: popsicles! Prepared in under 10 minutes, loaded with vitamins and minerals and free of any artificial sugar, they are the perfect afternoon refreshement.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 Kiwi
  • 1 Mango
  • 1 Frozen banana
  • 1 Tsp Maca powder
  • 1 Tsp Spirulina powder

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Peel kiwi and cut into pieces. Blend with half the frozen banana and spirulina powder.
  2. Peel and cut mango. Blend with other half of frozen banana and maca powder.
  3. Fill half of the Popsicle form with mango nicecream and the other half with kiwi nicecream. But in the freezer and enjoy.

Of course you can use any fruit combination to create a smoothie-on-a-stick. Just be creative and cool down in a healthy way. Happy summer everyone!

Dragonfruit-Strawberry Smoothie

When I was living in Zurich, the dragon fruit (especially the red one) was always nice for decorations but tasted like water. Well, here in Singapore they have a sweet flavor and are refreshing in the humid weather. So why not combining the decorative effect with the delicious sweet taste? The pink color of the smoothie is an eyecatcher and will definitely draw attention to your breakfast bowl.

  • 50g frozen strawberries
