Tough to beat freshly picked summer berries, ripe and bursting with flavour, a reward for sweating it out in the sun plucking the delicate sweet gems. I always like to consider a singular berry very carefully - they disappear into a mouth so quickly, but their tininess still took a long time to grow. Magic.
Another summer fave? Popsicles of course! With the proliferation of ice pop molds in dollar stores and fancy online shops, there's no need to go without making your own! Literally the easiest dessert you'll ever make. It's such a treat to have a collection of frozen popsicles at the ready on a blazing hot day. A little mixing, a little freezing and then instant creamy blackberry coconut refreshment!
