Summer inspiration

Summer is nearly here, and I’m loving it! That calls for some tasty delicious Summer dishes and drinks. But it can be difficult finding the inspiration to create them and some variation in our food is always welcome! That’s why I’m sharing my favorite Summer recipes based on some of our SELF ingredients that’ll put you right into that Summer mood!

Pink coconut berry smoothie

I love la vie en rose! This recipe can be found on the website of nutritionstripped and looks absolutely amazing! Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but as an entrepreneur you may not always have the time for it. That’s why sometimes I just grab what I can find and stuff it in my mouth and hope for the best, which usually doesn’t end well… So a breakfast smoothie seems like a good alternative! You can even prepare it the night before so you don’t have to waste any precious time in the morning, and you can start the day with a good mood!

The only things you’ll need are coconut milk, coconut bits, water, frozen berries, zucchini, chia seeds and vanilla egg-white powder. Mix everything in the blender and voila! You can find the recipe on Nutritionstripped’s website:


Arugula salad with macadamia nuts

Summer and salads go hand in hand! Sometimes you can even discover a new and heavenly combination, like an arugula salad with macadamia nuts on The macadamia nuts add a lovely crunch to your meals! The only things you’ll need are mango, avocado, macadamia nuts, arugula and some lovely Summer dressing. Add all ingredients into a bowl, add the dressing and there we are! Simple, healthy and quick!

Don’t let anyone tell you salads are boring! You can find the recipe on Lunchboxbunch:


Aloë vera water

You might have seen aloe vera water in your local supermarket, and it’s one of the biggest trends at the moment. No wonder, as it’s incredibly healthy! You can either buy it from the stores or you can even make it yourself, although that can prove difficult as not all ingredients are readily available. Aloe vera water contains small pieces of actual aloe vera and it can be very refreshing on those hot Summer days!
