Finally sunny weather that’s here to stay. Admittedly I am the happiest during the summer months when temperatures rise so high that you can see a #heatwave trend all over the media. There’s so much to love for me about this season. The clear blue sky, the flowers and spending as much time as I can in the garden. Now since I need to optimise my time during the summer, I fall back on quick on the go frozen desserts just to get back out there and enjoy these rare moments of sunshine here in the UK. This ‘Froyo’ mango dessert is so quick and oh so delicious!
When it’s as warm as it was today, I get full on lazy. You will find me outside, reading in the shade or bathing in the sunshine. Since I’m a child of summer, I can not get enough of it. The only thing that can at least temporarily drag me back inside the house is the urge for a cold snack. Said snack better be made quickly because I have sun rays to catch and piling up the vitamin D is serious business.
Vitamin D, also known as the “sunlight vitamin” is conveniently produced by our body while we are exposed to daylight. It’s important for calcium absorption and therefore relevant for bone growth. One portion of this lovely frozen yoghurt covers about 15% of an adult’s daily calcium needs. I would be a shame to let that go to waste by not making sure I have enough vitamin D. Let me cut this short so that I can head back outside again. This frozen mango yoghurt soft serve is healthy; it’s tasty, contains no added sugars and is very easy to make. What’s not to like? Happy days! Enjoy your summer guys.
