Wakey-wakey morning shot

Good morning dear folks! It’s time for a healthy breakfast. Try this green juice.For two glasses you will need: 

A handful of fresh basil, a handful of spinach, half a lemon, 1.5 dl home-made rhubarb juice (rhubarb, lemon, dash of brown sugar, anis, cardamom), 1.5 dl Pellegrino or any other mineral water, 1 tsp agave syrup. Mix in a blender starting with the lemon and herbs. I alway trust my husband’s good old Hamilton Beach bar mixer. Never let’s me down. Neither one!

Lemon Basil Ice Cream

One of the delights of working in tourism and hospitality education is getting glimpses and spoonfuls of new ideas from eager students hustling and bustling in the educational kitchen testing  and developing recipes.

This ice cream was served on chocolate brownie the other week in an event. My colleague kindly let me into the recipe which goes something like this:

2 dl condensed milk, 2 dl whipped cream, 1 pot of basil, grated zest of 1/2 lemon, 2 tbsp lemon juice and a dash of vanilla.

Put the lemon zest, juice and basil into a blender, mix until smooth. Oh, what a lovely perfume! Whip the cream. Mix the basil-lemon mixture into the milk. Turn in the whipped cream and mix into smooth consistence. Place in a freezer proof bowl with a tight lid. Refrigerate for at least three hours.

Yammy! Yet not as fresh and light as the one I tasted on campus.
