We will surely remember this summer!
Every new cyclone coming from Africa bringing hot weather
is giving names.
Lucifer is the 6th in a row I think, I have lost count of them.
But Caligula, Caronte and all the others have tried up gardens, trees, mountains rivers and also our lake is sinking.
Water is really becoming a problem now.
The beautiful edge Costabella on Monte Baldo is almost all brown,
the cows searching the few water pools left, and waiting the days out in the shadows of ancient beech trees.
The humidity is high making the view of the lake look misty
Yes, it is very hot. We eat a lot of Gazpachos, they are cool and healthy. But also a lot of fruit smoothies.
This is Sofi’s recipe (daughter n°4)
1 small water melon
500gr of white natural soya yogurt
a handfull of frozen berries (blueberries, strawberries, wild strawberries etc)
Peel the water melon and cut in cubes, peel the bananas and slice.
Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
Serve with ice cubes immediately.
Actually there is no need to add sugar, the banana is sweet enough.
But if you can’t do without add a tablespoon of concentrated apple juice.
