Smoothies [Jun. 6th, 2004|06:38 pm]
Today was really quite hot, wasn't it? Since I ended up spending a lot of the day in the sun (up early to sit in the park while Hilary and Anne did "Race For Life", then off to a bike shop to get a new wheel fitted, walk much of the way home, then walk back to town to get my bike, and finally sitting in South Parks reading), Hilary and I decided to buy some fruit and make smoothies.

We ended up with raspberries, and came up with two quite nice (but quite different) recipes. Both were made in a blender, and produced about a pint of smoothie.
  • 15 - 20 raspberries
  • about 5-6 normal sized ice cubes
  • 2 rounded teaspoons of honey
  • orange juice to 450ml (assuming your blender has volume markings)
  • 15 - 20 raspberries
  • about 5-6 normal sized ice cubes
  • 1 rounded teaspoon of honey
  • cold, semi skimmed milk to 350ml
Assuming we get some more nice weather, I remember to buy more fruit, and Anne continues to let me borrow her blender, I might come up with a few more recipes this summer. Smoothies, mmmm.... :)
