With summer, we are constantly trying to keep hydrated, and Susan from Andie.M Design Shop shared a unique drink she loves: raspberries, mint, lemon and water. Lately we are loving everything that’s fresh, from the smoothies we’re posting so frequently, the Hibiscus infused Vinegar for our salads up to our desserts.
We went to the Saúl Farmers’ Market this last weekend and we saw plenty of new and fresh ideas for cool drinks and recipes for summer. How about a pineapple, orange and celery smoothie? Or maybe a pineapple and dragon fruit one? We will share more of our smoothies this month, as well as some new recipes we’ve been testing!

We know you know. You know we know. We have been slacking on the posts, but fear not our readers, we are definitely picking things up around here. Take this gorgeous Rhubarb Berry Crumble. Summer is definitely here. This is the time when you make Cold Brewed Coffee by batches and drink lemonade by the pitcher. During summer days, we want more fruit in our desserts. This, because, fruit as a dessert is so much refreshing than a chocolate cake.
I had little rhubarb left in the freezer, and just enough strawberries and blueberries to make a medley so rich that you will get seconds. Use a fruit combination you love, for me it was time for the blueberries and strawberries to meet rhubarb in a dessert. I even thought of adding mango, but that will be for a future post.
Now, I modified the original recipe, mixing up the fruit (and increasing its amount as well), adding a bit more sugar as the rhubarb is not as sweet as the rest of them, replaced the butter with coconut oil (absolutely loved the result) and last but not least, added some almonds for a crunch. Later when it was in the oven, I thought about poppy seeds. Mental note taken, as I will try it the next time.
I served this dessert after taking it out of the oven, but if you make it ahead, you can reheat it for a few minutes in your oven so its warm and toasty. Also, make sure to serve it with vanilla ice cream. You will be the star of the party.
