Tomorrow it's gonna be Sunday. It's going to be a sunny and warm day. Imagine yourself enjoying the nice weather outside. Maybe even having a barbecue, gardening, or just relaxing. You know what would make this day even more perfect? The vibrant taste of strawberries, yes. But, most of all, in the form of a cold and refreshing drink!
So please, go put one yogurt in the freezer now. That's it. Tomorrow, all you'll have to do is to add a handful of strawberries, a piece of watermelon, and some mint leaves to brighten up the flavours. And enjoy!

Ca paraît presque réalisable par moi ! Incroyable comme ca semble simple ! Mais pour que ca me donne vraiment envie, il faudra mieux que je m'abstienne de les préparer !

Is it possible to use something in place of the mint (for those of us who don't usually have fresh mint hanging around the kitchen)?

Would a drop or two of a peppermint extract work as well perhaps?

Mélanie said...

Hi Nicholle - I have never used peppermint extract, actually I'm not sure we have this in France. I've never seen it. But it could probably work. If you try, just tell me how you liked it.
Otherwise, I think it could be tasty to use fresh basil (if you have some in the kitchen... maybe it's more easy to use in other recipes as well).
