The sun has at last come back to us and is shining brightly. Immediately my thoughts rush to the one word: “PICNIC!”
There’s many a tweet already this morning of folks preparing a picnic and heading off to the local park or riverbank.
Now with Wimbledon just around the corner, I’m frantically clearing my desk of work so I can have one eye on the laptop, the other fixed to the TV!
Today we’re sharing a rather scrummie smoothie that can be whizzed up in moments. Aptly called the Juicy Deuce, (coughs), it’s a mix of raspberries and yoghurt.
Raspberries and yogurt smoothie
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: nil
To whizz this up, here’s the list of ingredients you will need:
- 2 x 125g Alpro soya vanilla and raspberry alternative to yogurt
- 500ml Alpro soya original milk
- 2 x 125g fresh raspberries
- 1 tablespoon honey, to sweeten if required
- A large handful of ice
- 4 slices fresh orange
- 4 sprigs of fresh mint
Blend the yogurt, milk, all but a few of the raspberries (you need to reserve a few raspberries for garnish) and the ice together until very smooth. Taste and add some honey if desired.
Divide among glasses and decorate with the reserved raspberries, sliced orange and mint.
You see, I said it would be quick!
If you’re popping it in a lunch box, either pour into a thermos to keep it chilled, or a screw top bottle, and keep chilled. So you’ll definitely need an icepack or two too…
Now as we’ve got our veggie patch going, with a kitchen herb garden, we can just skip outside and pick our mint…
