Happy 1st of July as the Americans say! I can’t tell you how much the fog that started rolling in as I began my run this morning was welcome. It was like running 9km under mist sprinklers! Running any time of the day now, you feel or I feel like a melted helado/ice cream. While it’s a little cooler in the mornings and evenings you melt regardless!
Ice Lolly (popsicle for non Brits!) season’s begun thanks to the heat! I’ve always preferred ice lollies to ice cream* in the summer. Every summer growing up my mum used to make almost every other day during the summer holidays black current cordial lollies for everyone. When I remember now, I make my own batches using fresh fruit juice. I cheat a little and use fresh juices from the supermarket (saves me juicing!), pour into moulds and freeze. The perfect summer time treat!
Fog rolling in running this morning.
*I’ve yet to try them, but there are some ice cream parlours in here selling vegan ice cream. P makes a great vegan coconut ice cream and I need to make a trip to La Boqueria market to try the ice lollies I’ve seen there!
Ice cream or ice lollies? What’s your favourite summer time treat?
