My quest to get my five a day in smoothie form continues, and I have to say I do feel the benefit of them, at least my stomach does!
One of the latest attempts has been this:
Frozen Black Forest Mix, a pear, grapes and some blueberries, topped up with some water. It produced this:
Quite runny without a banana to thicken it but I actually appreciate that thinner consistency sometimes, and very refreshing with the pear and grapes.
Another attempt was this:
The last of the Frozen Black Forest Mix, a banana, grapes and a splash of orange and raspberry juice. This combination produced this:
Much thicker, more milkshakey in consistency, but still decidedly yummy.
I plan to get some frozen mango/pineapple mix to make some more exotic flavoured smoothies soon, just for a change from the berries. It is definitely a fun way to eat your fruit and veg, and better than juice because all the flesh/skin is still in there.
We have been enjoying the fun of Playdoh at our house at the moment - J is obsessed with it and keeps asking us to make 'cakes', 'fried eggs' and 'parrots' for some reason. Any ideas for inventive Playdoh play to expand our horizons?
