Here in the UK we had a glimpse of soaring summer temperatures last week and that got me thinking about heady weekend afternoons spent lazing in the sunshine, ice cream in hand.
Now I am hugely pleased that we now have much better dairy free alternatives to enjoy if we choose, however making your own is always going to be my choice as even though they’re natural, these products still tend to contain a good whack of sugar.
So here I’ve combined 2 of my favourite plant based products – the amazing premium açai purée (and for anyone still wondering you say it as-aye-ee) from Boa Vida Açai, and the scrummy hemp milk from Good Hemp Food.
Açai is naturally very bitter, it tastes similar to a really good quality dark chocolate, and this sings of it’s incredible antioxidant content (a valuable addition to our diets when we’re spending time in the sun to protect our cells from sun damage!). Personally I am one of savoury tastes so I find the natural flavour perfect, however you could easily blend in some extra cinnamon or a little banana to sweeten the flavour.
And that’s not skipping over my adoration for hemp, but to avoid repeating myself check out this post to hear all of my hemp-centric musings.
