Hey everyone :)


Sometimes I can be a bit obsessive. Lately it's been smoothies ... 

I was watching a YouTube video last week and part of the video was about smoothies and that's when it all started. I haven't fully started experimenting yet so expect lots more smoothie posts in the next few weeks.

For the last couple of days I have been blending frozen summer fruits (so redcurrants, blackcurrants, raspberries, strawberries etc) and orange juice and sometimes a squeeze of lemon juice.

It's simple and is 3 ingredients - there are probably many more recipes (probably hundreds) but I like the simple and easy ones. 

It's also not as expensive as people think. The main reason people shy away is the cost of fresh fruit. But I was watching a smoothie video that Jamie Oliver did and he says that buying frozen fruit is as good as buying fresh - for 2 reasons - it's cheaper and its picked as its ripest moment and then frozen - so is full of nutrients and flavour.

Let me know in the comments if you have any good recipes that I should try!
