Ice Cream

With summer in full swing many of us are looking for a refreshing treat like ice cream. Today we have a few tips for healthy ice cream options so that you can stay on track while enjoying summer!

And if you want to enjoy ice cream bought in the supermarket, we have the following tips for you:

1. For a homemade ice cream, puree a portion of frozen fruits with a hand blender or mixer.

2. The shorter the list of ingredients, the better. An organic ice cream is usually more expensive, but for a taste experience without additives, it is worth spending a few cents more.

3. Information on high-quality processing can also be found in phrases such as “without colorings, additives and flavorings” or “only natural ingredients”. 

4. Avoid plastic spoons and cups as much as possible and, like this, ensure clean ice cream enjoyment!

Summer Spread

Today we have a delicious spread for the summer season that is packed full of flavor!

Ingredients:
1 serving of seeds (sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, etc.)
1 serving of strawberries
1 serving of avocado
1 serving of rye bread

Preparation:
Roast the seed mixture in a dry pan until you smell a nutty aroma and then remove from the heat to cool down. Remove the pit and pulp of the avocado and cut the pulp into small cubes. Puree the strawberries with the avocado and a third of the toasted seeds (add a little bit of water for easier blending). Place the spread on toasted rye bread and sprinkle with the remaining seeds. Eat a few of the seeds first, then enjoy the bread and spread!

Tip: Strawberries can be replaced by other fruits such as apples!

Strawberry Season

Welcome to the strawberry season!

From a botanical point of view, this is not actually a berry, but an aggregate fruit. The red part is actually a pseudo-fruit, while the actual fruits of the strawberry are the small green or yellow spots on the surface. Strawberries should not be rinsed with a strong water jet, but rather be soaked in cold water for a short while Drain the washed strawberries well or pat dry carefully. Always remove stems and leaves after washing, otherwise the aroma will be watered down. Strawberries are full of vitamins: They contain many B vitamins, folic acid, zinc, copper and even more vitamin C than oranges or lemons.
