I can’t get enough of the sunshine, the lazy weekends chilling – mostly horizontally – whilst reading in the park and the looong days. Honestly, nothing compares to the 9/10pm sunsets.

^ Alphonso mangoes – I’ve been buying these beauties by the boxful. Slice open the golden yellow skin and you’ll reveal a saffron-coloured, almost buttery flesh, bursting with sweet juices and a mouthwatering aroma.

A sweet mango slushie balanced out with fresh lime and a little kick of heat from the jalapenos. Note: It’s not super spicy but should leave a slightly warm feeling in the back of your throat.
