Morning Blueberry Pancake Smoothie

Maybe I shouldn’t have put ‘blueberry pancake smoothie’ in the title, but that’s what this tastes like to me and so I’m sticking with it!I haven’t posted on here in a while because my cooking exploits have turned from home-made to home-zapped BUT my juicing is going semi-OK and so I thought I’d post my most recent fave!

Ingredients:

1.5 cups of blueberries (frozen if possible as they retain their colour so make for a nicer looking smoothie)

1 banana

1 cup of low fat natural greek yoghurt

half a cup of honey greek yoghurt

1 handful of spinach (strange but go with it)

1 cup of almond milk

PROCESS:

BLEND!!!

This is the smoothie I’ve been having in the morning rather than eating FOOD as it’s jam packed with fruit and vitamins and it’s so thick and naturally sweet. It just feels good to drink it and if you use frozen blueberries it’s a delicious colour. Not to worry if you don’t use frozen berries though. The colour isn’t as ‘fresh’ looking but the flavour is still there.

let me know if you do blueberry smoothies – am I missing a trick? I’d love to know of other variations on this 🙂

Welcome!

This may be the start of something great… but it might also be the start of something that no one wants to read… that’s right. Another food blog. But how does one choose from all the other food blogs out there? What makes MY taste in food and MY recipes so different from someone else’s? Why should you stick around?

All of these questions and we’ve only just begun – it’s kind of intimidating, yes, but hey! Wait! Let’s get to know each other before we make any judgements.

So, let’s settle those questions right here and now. Let me introduce myself. My name is Sam and I love food – just like you do… and everyone on this planet. Yes. I have a taste for food. Vegetarian food, yes, but also tasty, non-rabbit food, and very healthy vegetarian food. I’m trying to sell this to you, ok?

Food is something I work my days around. What’s for breakfast? When’s it time for my mid-morning snack? How soon can I eat my lunch without looking like a pig? You know, the usual stuff every girl goes through every single day. But I also have this love for cooking real food, not junk, but really god-damn tasty recipes that I collect, tweak, come up with when I have nothing else to do but look around on the internet at pictures of house interiors and amazing looking cakes.

So now you know about me, let’s address those questions.

But how does one choose from all the other food blogs out there? The great thing about the Internet is that you don’t have to pick just one. You can follow loads and feel the benefits of people’s creativeness without dedicating your life to just one outlet.

What makes MY taste in food and MY recipes so different from someone else’s? I really believe each person has their own take on what’s tasty, what’s easy and what’s healthy. I like to think that my taste is, without doubt, impeccable, but we all think that about what we like, don’t we? I mean, not everyone has the same love of pickles as I do. So my take on some recipes might just appeal to you too… you know. If you love pickles too! *

Why should you stick around? Well, you don’t have to, but it would be nice if you did. I’m going to post recipes, articles about food related stuff/ health, pictures of food and it’s all going to be vegetarian. But don’t let that put you off – just because there’s no meat, doesn’t mean it’s not sweet (yeah, check out my rhymes and puns… I’m a writer, what can I say?**). 

So there you have it. I’ve laid it all out on the table, pun intended, and now it’s up to you to decide. Stick around, say hi, tell me you love food and I’ll tell you I love food, and then bombard you with pictures of it.

Until next time,

Sam

*Don’t worry, pickles don’t actually feature in any of my recipes… yet!

**Say sorry, Sam. Just say sorry.
