*fresh blackberries with peach slices

today was a simple day.. with lots of fruit! Perfect chilled for the summer heat. I had some wonderful fruits after my expensive grocery store trips (sorry, dad :( )

blackberries pair very nicely with fresh peaches. sweetness from the peaches counters the tart berries. also a nice range of textures!

*summer smoothie

so hot in the apartment! even in the night.

a purée of ice, strawberries, mango, peach, whipping cream, lemon, sugar, basil

garnished with basil leaves... i think the strong punchy flavor pairs nicely with sweet strawberries. who would have guessed?
