We're big fans of smoothies here. Remember this post? My children are very good about eating fruit and not so bad on the vegetable front either so I don't actually have to do any of those "hide the veggie" tricks on them. I, on the other hand love my veggies but struggle with the texture of most fruit despite liking the taste, so smoothies work really well for me. Our old blender, a hand me down, had reached the stage where it could barely squish a banana, so this weekend it was replaced with a newer model.
Now of course, I'm on a blender bender, and spent much of Saturday blending every fruit or veggie I could think of. It turns out you can blend practially anything with the right tools (I had no idea you could blend apples for instance). So I have set myself the challenge this week of making 7 completely different smoothies using fruit or veggies with myself and my little darlings as chief taste testers.
Day one :: Very Berry
We started off with a conservative effort, our go to smoothie recipe which has been named Very Berry. Nothing new here, the children always give this one a thumbs up.
The verdict: predictable, but always a winner - although Ruby prefers it with a splash of milk instead of OJ.
