3 sweet treats to beat the heat

Summer’s here! And you know what that means: It’s time for everyone’s favorite frosty treats. We’ve got three easy ideas that aren’t only refreshing, but also use ingredients that will keep your body temperature nice and cool.

Watermelon and cucumber smoothie

In a blender, whiz these up until smoothe:
Half a watermelon, peeled
Half a cucumber, chopped
A handful of ice
The juice of half a lemon
1/2 dl aloe vera juice

Raspberry froyo pops

Stir the ingredients together in a bowl, then pour the mixture into ice pop moulds and freeze.
3 dl Greek yogurt
1 tsp vanilla powder
1 dl whipped cream
200 g raspberries

Virgin Moscow mule
Mix up the following and enjoy:
One part ginger beer
One part apple juice
Lots of ice
A few sprigs of fresh mint

We love to see our customers get creative with our products. Go for it! But please note that altering or modifying IKEA products so they can no longer be re-sold or used for their original purpose, means the IKEA commercial guarantees and your right to return the products will be lost.
