banana + hemp smoothie

Last night I bought a lettuce and a bunch of bananas… This morning I have a green breakfast! Who said this was difficult?… so read my FB page on Sunday morning, accompanied by a photo of my thick delicious green smoothie.

peach + berry puree smoothie

It is hot and overcast in Boston today with a 60% chance of thunderstorms… not a good day for a 4hr return trip to Six Flags, much to my disappointment – it is my birthday after all. After the initial disappointment I actually embraced… Continue Reading “peach + berry puree smoothie”

green smoothie. old-school banana style

My beautiful, wonderful Brisbane flatmate Mel and I used to have banana smoothies a lot. We loved them… ripe bananas, honey, vanilla, milk and scoops and scoops of full fat ice cream. Being lactose-intolerant, they made me terribly bloated and gassy but I persisted… Continue Reading “green smoothie. old-school banana style”
