Seasonal Tastes: June


What an exciting time of year. Strawberries are in abundance and there is so much sweetness all around.

With the sunshine finally sticking around for a while, this is the perfect time to start experimenting with summer flavours. One of my favourite ways to use Strawberries is blended up and added to Lemonade – boy do I love Strawberry Lemonade. You can also add some seasonal mint, which makes the whole thing that little bit more incredible. Or why not try freezing some and blitzing with frozen banana to make healthy Strawberry Ice Cream. Yummy! 

Of course there are lots of other yummy foods in season at the moment – so many I could list for hours but a few of my favourites are Mint, Peas, Broad Beans, Green Beans, Basil, Gooseberries…

So why not take a trip this weekend to your local farmers market and pick up a few seasonal treats and get experimenting. Guaranteed they will taste good no matter what you do. 

Happy Weekend!
