For the past few days the weather has been perfect in my neck of the woods. You see when you live in a country which consists of constant rainfall with cold, dismal weather.
There’s a sense of gratefulness when the weather transitions from icy cold to warm, hot sunny days. I also like the vibe which summer evokes, people seem to smile more and greet one another.
My favourite hobby is to people watch on my lunch break, sometimes it’s nice to just watch the world go by. Another great thing about summer is the smoothies and deliciously tasting frozen desserts. I made a lovely banana rama smoothie to accompany my dahl today (I know 2 liquids at once, who does that?).
The secret to this banana smoothie is adding a small quarter of apple, there’s something about adding an apple to the mix which really enhances the taste. The walnuts provide additional healthy fats and protein too.
