Refreshing Avocado

food musings, fruits, desserts

One of the perfect {not to mention delicious} way to beat the scorching summer heat is to eat avocado. My love affair with this fruit developed rather late. My mama loved this fruit and she would make avocado ice cream out of it by just slicing off the fruit and mixing in a cup of condensed milk and putting in in the freezer to cool. It was too sweet for my taste so I seldom join her feasting on this dessert.

It was only now that I found out that avocados can also be eaten raw and they actually taste so good. Now it has become one of my comfort food and would always get one whenever I do my grocery rounds. I simply leave it in the ref to cool and then eat it in a few days.

Avocados are rich in fiber and even has more Potassium than bananas. They say eating this fruit is good for the skin and also helps reduce the risk of diabetes, as well as lower blood cholesterol levels. No wonder my mama loves to eat them! 🙂

Anyway, I have just ran out of my avocado stash so I will make sure to grab one later after I am done reading all about this engrossing post about men’s wedding rings.

Beating The Summer Heat With Ice Cream

desserts, ice cream, food musings

Can you believe this heat? The sweltering heat just shoot up to the most intolerable degrees and everyone seems to be doing whatever they can to beat the summer heat. One of my faves? A scoop {or two or more! ;)} of my favorite ice cream.

My siblings went home a few weeks ago with these and we had such a wonderful time catching up our summer adventures {or lack of it}.  This is one of the new flavors of ice cream Selecta has recently came up. I particularly enjoyed it + I love the fact that you get to enjoy 3 different flavors in one tub. Mango is my most favorite of all! 🙂

This 1.5 liter  tub also comes with a free box of wafer cones which made us enjoy our ice cream experience even more! 🙂

Oh well, writing about this now is making me crave for another scoop, maybe I will get some later on when I go out with the little man, once I am done reading these nifty tips on how to speed up my pc at Iolo.com. 😉
