Summer Fun 🍦

  • Homemade lollies

  • Try freezing juices into fun layered lollies. Pour your favourite juices into lolly moulds and freeze a layer at a time (adding fresh fruit if you like) to get a striped effect. Orange and forest fruits (with some sliced strawberries added in) create a colourful effect, but try your own combinations with as many layers as you like.

    Juice Cubes

  • Make a chilled glass of juice even more refreshing by using juice for the ice cubes, too. You won’t dilute your drink with water as they melt and you could even try freezing different juices to make your own mixes, you could try pink grapefruit and pineapple for a tangy, tropical treat. Add fruit for an extra surprise.

  • Simple Slushies

  • If you’ve already got a tray of juice cubes sitting in the freezer, then a simple slushie is something you can easily whip up as well. Blitz the cubes in a powerful food processor or blender for a glass of fruity ice that’ll be the ultimate refreshment on a hot day. Make them even prettier by layering up different flavours in the same glass – all you need to do is choose whether to enjoy with a straw or spoon…

  • Party cocktails

    It’s one you should definitely be serving up this summer and will become a new party favourite. Tasting as tropical as it sounds, this pretty drink is a mix of spicy dark rum, Campari, zingy lime and plenty of pineapple juice. Mix up a batch and invite friends and family over.

  • Mocktails

  • Or how about leaving out the booze and making it child friendly. Served with mint leaves, ice and orange slices, try serving as a juice float with chopped pineapple and a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

  • Have a go and let me see the results 😉

    Hi I’m an avid reader. I also write reviews for the books I read. Come in and say hi. You can find me on GoodReads, Bookbub, and NetGalley 👩🏻‍💻 I also review on an awesome site The Reading Cafe (run by Barb and Sandy) So ........ More about me 🤨 I’m almost 50 🤫 I’ve been married (for 27 years) I have a 30 year old son. I had a daughter, I lost her a week before her 21st birthday 😥 and it’s been 5 years since she’s been gone (and not a day goes by that I don’t miss her) I work as a salad 🥗 chef 👩‍🍳 in a restaurant, haven’t been there long (before that I worked in Tesco) a large supermarket in the UK. I also like to make craft items (and if your really lucky) and I’ll try to post my efforts on here 😉 My daughter loved butterflies (so part of my blog name is dedicated to her) I’ve taken on her love of butterflies (I have several tattoos) so I’m probably going to throw quiet a few butterflies on here 😉 I LOVE PENGUINS 🐧 💕so I’m also going to be putting a few on here (my library holds a few) 😉 <img src=""
