Happy midsummer! We made some refreshing recipes for lovely summer treats. May the sun be with you!

Key Lime Juice

A fresh mix of coconut water, honey and lime.

4 glasses

  • 1¼ cups / 3 dl coconut water
  • 4 key limes or limes

Pour coconut water in a jug. Squeeze the juice from two of the limes and add to the jug. Slice the rest of the limes and add to the drink. Flavor with honey and serve with ice.

Vegan Coconut Ice Cream

  • 1½ cups / 4 dl coconut milk
  • 4 tbsp corn flour
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 4 tbsp neutral oil, like sunflower oil
  • ⅔ cup / 1 dl coconut cream
  • ½ cup / 1 dl honey

Mix coconut milk and corn flour in a saucepan. Cut the vanilla pod vertically and scoop out the seeds. Put both the seeds and the pod in the saucepan and boil while beating forcefully. Remove from the heat and pour in the oil in a thin beam while beating. Add the coconut cream and honey while beating and cool down the mixture in a water bathe. Put the mixture in an ice cream machine. It will take a little longer than with regular ice cream. Eat directly or put in the freezer. If it sits in the freezer for more than an hour you will have to take it out about five minutes before eating.
