Summer cooler: Iced mocha!
Once upon a time on a scorching day, a mother had a bright idea: "Children, let's go to Al Barsha Pond Park to collect some leaves and seed pods for Maya to take to school tomorrow for her science project!" The unsuspecting children were ecstatic at the prospect of whizzing around the leafy park with carefree abandon, so the trio loaded their bike and scooter into the boot of the family buggy and set off to their destination in the name of science.
Alas, it was indeed carefree - and for a change the trio found parking right at the entrance - for the park was completely deserted, as if the entire city was in hiding from the invisible inferno. The children tried to whizz with gusto and the mom trudged one foot in front of the other. Collectively they startled lots of pigeons, jackdaws, some hoopoes, guinea fowls, and even a lilac breasted roller. Soon the children realised their untapped reservoir of energy would remain sealed by the inexhaustibly oppressive heat, and the trio decided to call for the end of the expedition, after consoling themselves of their commendable effort in collecting a sufficient portfolio of leaves and seed pods of non-indigenous varieties.
Some summer cooler is indeed in order: Coconut water slushie for the children and iced mocha for the mom!
Ice mocha: Blend 1.5 cups of ice cubes with 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk (or coconut milk, or milk of choice) to make milky slushie. Brew 1 shot of espresso and melt 2 squares (20g) of 75% dark chocolate, along with some coconut sugar (optional). Pour mocha into the milk slushie, stir and ENJOY!!! #summer #summercooler #mocha #icedmocha #espresso #coffee #icedcoffee #lovecoffee #eatwell #eatwelllivewell #eatclean #eathealthy #healthyeating #healthyeats #cleaneating #cleaneats #health #fitness #nutrition #macros #healthydubai #dubaifitness #dubai #mydubai #dubailiving #dubailife #dubaimums #dubaisummer - 6 hours ago
