It’s Summer! Time for Smoothies!

I love smoothies and I love Summer – so if you put them together, it’s enough to make me smile! 🙂

And Pinterest have PLENTY of smoothie recipes which I struggle to choose from. Spoilt for choice!! So, after a rather difficult time and being signed off work for a week, I decided to kick my butt into gear and start making my own smoothies.

I bought the Breville Blend-Active Personal Blender for £29.99 which, thanks to Amazon Prime, arrived the very next day. It’s a family pack which includes 4 bottles of varying sizes – very handy for taking to work or going out and about… or if I’m super lazy and can’t be bothered to wash one of the bottles out!

I thought I’d go basic and do a Strawberry Banana Smoothie, inspired by Ali from Gimme Some Oven who gives her recipe to you which reminds her of summer at home.

I used:

  • 1x peeled banana
  • 5x sliced fresh strawberries
  • Cup of Greek Yoghurt (ok… in the video I guestimated it!)
  • Squeeze of honey

Here’s the time lapse of me making the strawberry banana smoothie;


Yummy!! I think next time, I’ll add some almond milk with it all as well, but it was absolutely delicious and definitely inspired me to make more smoothies. Looking forward to smoothie breakfasts and healthy eating 🙂

Tweet me with your favourite smoothie recipe and I’ll give it a go! You can find me on @thepinpicker

Keep sipping those smoothies in the sunshine!!
