Frozen berries - er, hello?

Why have I never tried these before?
Im investing in some extra zing a ling in my life because its too hot to eat normal food and fruit seems to be refreshing and thirst quenching in an instant. I've read about frozen fruit being used in smoothies a while ago so we gave it a try the other day. Not only is it super duper cheap to buy but it wont go off neither so that gets the Wiseman thumbs up.I grab a handful of any frozen fruits (Sainsburys have a frozen fruit offer 3 bags for a fiver and you get TONNES in them), wazz them in a smoothie maker/liquidiser/blender with a fat free yog (those muller ones are pretty swish) and a smidge of skimmed milk. HELLO? This is a totally filling breakfast, icy cold, HEALTHY, cheap as chips and keeps that little hunger pang locked up til lunch.
The god of vitamins is sure to let me into his veggie garden when I leave this earth.
**feels tres virtuous and smugly vitaminny**

Got any smoothie recipes for us? No banana ones for me, those buggers make me heave.

Strange amount of blog visitor activity these past few days, can somebody enlighten me? ;)

Hi Kirsty,

Its funny how people meet in the world these days...and somehow I believe everyone is connected.
I currently live in Duncan, British Columbia, Canada. My best friend moved here 5 years ago from England. He met his wife online, came to Canada for a visit once and never looked back. A year later he was married and has been here ever since. Him and I met through his wife and have been friends ever since. His family currently lives in Leyland, Lancashire...but the thing that I find most amazing is that he was born and raised in Wigan. A few months ago I was given a link by a friend, her and I are regulars for checking out websites and blogs about other crafters, scrapbookers and stampers and then I came across yours. I always thought that it was so neat that I was always checking out your Blog from the place that is his hometown.

Your blog tastefully appeals to many...photography, scrapbooker, cardmaker, writer, but most importantly it shows that you are such a wonderful wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend and you allow people from all over the world to see the real you.
I truly enjoy checking out your blog on a daily basis and your blog has inspired me to create one of my own...not just yet though.:)
You have so many talents...so thankyou for all that you do.

As someone once said... "If you build it, they will come." Your bloggy is fantastic and talk of your online class is probably attracting some more KW fans!

I love smoothies, although C claims to hate them. I wizz mine with OJ and protien powder. Oh and I found adding frozen pineapples leads to a light whipped texture too, so yummy with coconut also!

Kazzy said...

Oooh, we love smoothies here.

My fav is frozen raspberries, canned peaches and a muller peach yog all blitzed with some ice....the kids add a splosh of honey to theirs too!

Oh yummy! I'm starting to dislike bananas too. I never use to but now even the smell of them makes me feel queezy - when did that happen? I love making yoghurt drinks, I tend to just grab whatever I have to hand, fruits, oats, honey. I've even included the occasion vegetable too! No really I've used oven-roasted beetroot in yoghurt drinks - my boyfriend wont touch it but I love it LOL!

Tip Top said...

I'm with you on the bananas. The devil of all fruit. Bleugh

Deanne said...

I've been lurking here for a while having been pointed in your direction when I was complaining to a friend about my total lack of creative inspiration.
I've found loads of inspiration here but I'm still inept with cameras, paper and glue!
So I check out your blog most days to steal your ideas but also because I think your dog is so cute. Hubby won't agree to us having one so I go on virtual walks with yours!!

Brook said...

We love them....although my boys love the bananas...so no new recipes from me.

Sue Ramsay said...

Can you slow down with the recipes please I cant write that fast lol ! In this house you just chuck in whatever is to hand and if there is no yoghurt then its ice cream ( not as virtuous I know but hey!)
Amanda seems to be on the same wavelength as me (and god knows there arent that many of us around) re connections. My partner (the bald one as I affectionately call him) is from Leyland too - but we dont hold it against him TOO much!

I had a "healthy" smoothie last week, it was absolutely yummy !! fresh orange juice, carrot (juice) and ginger !! wow ! it was to die for !!!

cheri said...

Have been using this very same recipe for years! So fast, so easy, so yummy, and my kids loved them...still do though they are no longer kids! For a bit more refreshment, I sometimes add fresh mint!

Jo Austin said...

you mean lack of visitor activity? things have been very very quiet blogging wise.. apparantly it's something to do with blogger and the followers section someone said. I use firefox so everythings ok here.

still visiting and waving!!!
