Today was one of those days where you part the curtains, pull up the blinds and look out of the window to see the gorgeous sun in all its glory cascading its rays into your home like the Niagara Falls. At that moment, you feel deep down within your core, bubbling joy gradually but strongly gaining momentum.
By midnight, I would have had a fantastic day. Starting the day with breakfast for champions, overnight oats laced with blueberry low-fat yoghurt and chia seeds- yummy! (This rendition is making me hungry already). My day would have involved screaming at the top of my voice at the over-paid footballer, who was diving far better than the Olympic gold medallist swimmer-Michael Phelps. The fact that he couldn’t manage a goal in 90 minutes buttresses my point.
Spending the afternoon out in the sun, I felt it necessary to drench my brown skin in 50+ SPF and smile with contentment at the adequate sun protection before heading off to watch our home team beat the west side football team by 1-0 at the county ground. Somewhere in between arrival and departure, I found myself playing peek-a-boo at the stadium with the world’s most gorgeous blue eyed, blonde haired three-year-old. I must say, I have had a fun eventful day.
My throat feels parched mostly from dehydration and it hurts mainly from screaming (my fault). Chilled water or even a smoothie won’t quite do in alleviating the discomfort I feel. Like Archimedes, it hits me suddenly, that eureka groundbreaking moment! I should whip up a cherry yoghurt popsicle dotted with peach slices so I can cool off.
Yes indeed! I will be sharing this easy but fantastic recipe.
Peachy Cherry Yogurt Popsicle
1 pot of cherry yoghurt
How to prepare
Pour a 200ml pot of cherry yogurt into four popsicle moulds, slice the peaches diagonally and carefully place a slice into the corner of each mould.
Tighten the lid and place the mould on a flat surface in the freezer. Allow at least 6 hours to freeze.
Serve this on ice with sliced peaches and cherries for an aesthetically pleasing display.
Peaches are a source of antioxidant vitamins and minerals such as potassium, phosphorous, magnesium, iron and calcium. Peaches are generally low in calories, they do not contain any cholesterol or saturated fat and are a good source of dietary fibre.
Yoghurt is a rich source of probiotics, contains live cultures of good bacteria flora you need to digest food and can help to maintain a healthy digestive tract and helps to promote a healthy immune system
One serving of yoghurt is an important source of phosphorus, riboflavin, iodine, zinc, potassium, and vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid). Yoghurt also contains B12, which helps maintain the red blood cells and supports the nervous system in running smoothly.
