Summer time...summer drink in the afternoon. This month I always made summer drink everyday, this summer, the day is very hot and you always looking for something to drink, to drink water is a little bit boring, but combining water with fruits is perfect. So far I've tried different kind of fruits, puree them and combine with water and honey or syrup. Serve with ice cubes. So refreshing.

Raspberry season...! yes, that means, I can picked the fresh raspberry from my mother-in-law's garden, she has big raspberry garden, and enough to share it with everybody. Every year she could harvest it up to 10 kg fresh strawberries. Every time I visit her this month, I picked some of them and brought it at home.
This is one of the simplest recipe that I've ever made. I just put the raspberries into square small container. For the filling I've used dark chocolate and white chocolate block, you can also use one of them.

Strawberry season actually begin in June (in Germany), but I already find stores that sells strawberries, I just bought it 1 kilogram of it yesterday and I've made salad with strawberry, salad that I've used is field salad. I combined field salad with strawberry, walnuts and special dressing, yummy! Tip: you can also add feta cheese into the salad.
