As summer comes to a close we thought we’d turn our attention to some sunshine recipes. We’re talking about those food and drink items that you only really crave and cook in the sunny months. Throughout August, the blogosphere was ripe with summery fruity recipes perfect for devouring in the blazing sun.
As we're hit with what looks like the final heat wave of the year, cook up some of these dishes and soak up the last few days of sunshine. Pretty soon it will cold and damp and all you’ll want is an apple crumble!

Banana Ice-cream With Only One Ingredient? Where do we sign up! This recipe definitely ticks the quick and easy box and it looks pretty delicious too. The final brown colour may have been a slight error, but we like it as it makes the dish look really sweet and nutty. YUM!
