It is SUMMER! And it is beautiful! I really LOVE LOVE winter and do miss it during summer time BUT I have just created a RECIPE for this epic HOMEMADE VEGAN SWEET MINTY LIME ICE LOLLY that makes me feel overly excited about summer! ITS A SUPER EASY SMOOTH HOMEMADE ICE LOLLY to cool you down on the hot summers days or during the busy winter season and give you a sweet fresh kick to chill a little more or work a little less :D
When I lived in Varanasi for 1/2 year I drank a lot of this drink called LIMONANA - it was just magical on those extra hot days to cool me down and give me hope for the heat to come to an end. I went to this awesome pizza restaurant with my friends and we drank tons of these. The staff knew us all too well. It was a perfect spot to sit and chill, right by Ganga at Assi Ghat. Here there are always something going on, be it a snake charmer, a heard of buffaloes, a festival, live music or morning laughing yoga! It was just such an awesome experience and now as I have returned home I am craving these memories and why not get making my own limonana to blow wind in the old sails and travel back to my time in Varanasi?
