Recipes for Hot Days

The other day it was very hot...I am not a summer loving person because of the extreme heat - I prefer days that aren't too hot, not too cold with a slight breeze!  But hot days are here to stay for a while, so I made something really chilly to cool us down!


This is a fruit slushy made out of frozen papaya, frozen blueberries, frozen banana, icy fruit cocktail juice and a little rice milk to bind the ingredients.  The more milk (or yoghurt) you add, the more 'ice creamy' it becomes.  I just blended these ingredients together in our smoothie maker and voila!  A delicious snack to help us cool down!

I'm entering this slushy into Heidi's Fortnightly Baking Fun Challenge for 'Fruit and Vegetables'.  Hurry over to join in her challenge, she's offering a great prize!!

Later in the day thunder clouds came rolling in and we had a magnificent thunder storm with quite a bit of rain!

Poor Zak, our puppy dog, was bewildered by the big noises of the thunder and he tried to dodge the rain drops:)

It was beautiful and cool that evening after the storm!
