Its finally hot! It seems that summer has been just around the corner for months, and even though Perth sustained a whopper of a storm last night, (Armageddon thunder and lightening stuff!!) we knew it was definitely summer this morning when our local lake was dive bombed by water carrying helicopters, plundering its water for fire and rescue drops on local fires not too far from here. And it did shape up to be a hot and humid one today! In an effort to cool off as fast as possible and knowing how impatient my own children are, I thought this may work for you all…Certainly did the trick at ours!

Place all ingredients except ice and milk into Thermomix bowl and brew 10 min/90ºC/speed 2. Cool slightly.

Adding ice will thicken the consistency but dilute the taste.
