Jasmine’s 5 Hot Weather Refreshers

This is a beautifully fragrant and refreshing alternative to a summer Pimm’s, especially since alcohol is dehydrating. You just need a blender and a sieve for this one.

Ditch the cola for this sweet tangy nectar that I first tasted on my travels to Zanzibar a couple years ago. It’s made using dried tamarind pulp or fresh tamarind if you can get your hands on it.

An easy, delicious and nutritious snack that you can make with the whole family. These Indian-inspired nut ball is super cooling for summer thanks to the coconut, lime and mint.
