Watermelon, a sip of water, is also a good idea, as is… the tomato! Don’t hesitate to throw a few mint leaves into your recipes, whether it’s a pie, a sweet gazpacho or just a fruit salad. Even more original: basil, verbena or coriander. In the end, who says dessert to make when it’s hot says ice cream and sorbet. With or without an ice cream maker, it is possible to make them at home.
