A SWEET MORNING PINT

I’m doing something a little bit different this week, since I’m trying to be a little bit healthier myself in January. Don’t worry though its still a sweet and tasty recipe, just naturally so (which is better). My brother has got a new blender so every morning I’ve been making smoothies with it to kick start the day and I thought I’d share my favourite one so far. It has a few little different touches, firstly frozen berries to make it ice cold and refreshing. My second, and neccesarry touch is a chunk of root ginger. I can’t have a smoothie without it. The ginger doesn't just add heat, it battles the flavour of banana which usually overwhelms any other ingredient. Who would have thought a pint for breakfast could be so appealing?

I’ve mentioned my brother so I might as well link his new, vegan blog, completely different to mine, but featuring some seriously good recipes (I can vouch, I eat them!). Easy Peasy But Not Cheesy. Before he set up his blog he said he was going to make one to rival mine, force it to close. It’s a good blog but he’s not ginger, and won’t be posting anything bread related since he doesn't eat it. We have different audiences. I think I’m safe for a while.

2 ripe bananas
A handful of frozen raspberries
1 apple, peeled, cored and roughly chopped
Juice of half a lemon
A thumb sized piece of ginger, peeled and roughly chopped
About 250ml water

Throw all the ingredients into a blender and turn it on. Blend until bubbling and thick- but not gloopy, add a little bit more water if it is. Enjoy

The easiest recipe I’ve ever done.
