project 52: drink up!

We made it through The Boss's birthday last week. I say "made it through" because there were a few different celebrations, various treats, and it suddenly dawned on me that our normally healthy diet had morphed into the Saturday page of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. By lunchtime on day five of being five, she turned to me with a pained face and, like said caterpillar, moaned "Mummy, I've got a tummy ache". She opted only to eat cucumber dipped in hummus for the rest of the day, and I decided it was time for a homestyle detox, using whatever ingredients I had to hand.


So my photo for this week's p52 is more a demonstration of food over photography, nutrition over composition, diet over dof. If your tummy needs the afternoon off, this might be just the job.

makes about 400-500ml of thick smoothie:
     125g blueberries
     10 strawberries
     1 mango
     1 sprig of mint
     1 large scoop natural yoghurt
     1 handful mixed nuts

Blitz in the liquidiser and drink up!

  12. Looks yummy! I've never tried nuts in a smoothie, but it makes perfect sense and probably adds some subtle flavour.

  13. Oh delish! I love, love smoothies - and miss them since moving to our Oxford rental, with no blender. Your photo is making me think of getting one for our stay here. Ever tried flax seeds? Or spinach in your smoothies? I know it doesn't sound good, but you'll never taste it and it's so good for you!
