One of my remedies for balmy nights is what has been dubbed 'Sorbet in a Cup'. It's cooling, and delicious, and most likely falls into that 'clean eating' bandwagon that most people are blogging about. But I love it mainly because it stops me getting into my Subaru and going to the closest 7/11 for a Slurpee.
The man in our home hates a lot of things. Anything green. Anything fruity that isn't a mandarin. Anything Vegetarian. Chia Seeds. Health Food shops. Green Smoothies. Coconut. Fruit Juices that aren't packed with artificial sweeteners. So, a lot of things that I like. At times this makes me want to throttle him when all I want for dinner is a vegan eggplant stew and chickpea cookies for dessert. Anyway, I made this tonight for 'dessert', it's cooling down a bit at the moment in Brisbane, but the hot days have still left me craving fruits and ice-cream.
Sorbet in a Cup Recipe.

-1 cup coconut water

I also give this to said man in the house. He loves it, despite all the things he hates being in it.
How is everyone else doing with Summer?
