With this heat wave upon us we all like a nice cold ice cream or even ice cubes in our drinks, so I decided to try a couple of recipes this morning and after waiting for them to freeze and the obligatory taste test I can now share them with you.
First up is a delicious chocolate, banana and peanut butter chia ice lolly, for which you will need the following:1 banana
1 dessert spoon of peanut butter (you could also use chia nut butter)
1 scoop of chocolate muscle mousse (you could use chocolate protein power or cocoa powder may do the same job) Muscle mousse is a great low fat, low sugar but high protein dessert which I really like.
All you need to do is place the ingredients into a blender and blitz until smooth, then pour into ice lolly moulds, place into the freezer and leave for a few hours. I had a bit of mixture left over so poured this into an ice cube tray.
I also had the idea of some unusual ice cubes which can be eaten on their own or be perfect in a cold glass of water, coconut water or lemonade.
For these I just blended some watermelon with 2 teaspoons of chia seeds and a little bit of water then poured into a nice cube tray and topped with a blueberry then froze them, so simple and refreshing.
I hope you are enjoying the warm weather and that these recipes help to cool you down.
