[ Started dreaming of the summer ]

The last few weeks have been super chaotic with work, moving & Sharp Sharp, but I am not complaining, I love it. The chaos and the feeling of living everyday to not know what will happen the next day, makes you feel on top of the world. While reality sometimes is a bit different than that feeling. Maybe it’s better to describe it as a good long hike, with highs and lows, you’re on top of the world with an amazing view, but then you have to go down again and face the next hill. Anyways enough thinking, let’s start doing something again.

I have 2 recipes coming up this week, this one for an amazing smoothie and one for a dates cake. I made this smoothie because the last few days it has been grey and rainy outside and I started to long even more for spring and summer. So I have been a naughty girl and bought strawberries, I know not in season, but I couldn’t resist. I will have to balance it somehow by only eating apples the rest of the week ;)

Leaving you with the smoothie recipe and when you sip yours, you taste summer with the strawberries, apple & basil. But the best things is the jalapeños that will give you instant heath and reminds you of the sun shining and warming you before you dive into the sea. Okay well I am off dreaming again, back to work ^_^

P.S. We’re on the market again this easter weekend, selling our lovely treats from Sharp Sharp. It’s the Swan Market in Rotterdam on the 6th of April from 12.00 – 18.00. Come join us for some healthy treats & spicy sweets.

  • 1/2 jalapeños (pitted)
