Blueberry smoothie.

20140321-155227.jpg

This is the first smoothie I ever made. The frozen blueberries had been sitting in the freezer for a long time and I was looking for quick breakfast fixes at the start of last semester. After I made this I offered some to my uncle and aunt. (This was about a week after they’d arrived in Australia.) My uncle said to give him a small serve, thinking he wouldn’t like the taste. He was wrong. Soon there was none left and my promise to make more is taking a lot longer than I’d anticipated to fulfill. To me it tasted quite yoghurty, but thinner in texture.

I tried to keep this recipe as healthy as possible because I rarely make anything “clean” and nutritious. I adapted this recipe from numerous existing ones around the web, and it is quite a simple and predictable one. The only thing I can really credit to myself are the photographs (the fat bubble tea straw is coincidentally purple like the drink). Speaking of which: if you share/repost any of my photographs, please credit me and/or link this post. Thanks.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup natural yoghurt
  • Honey to your preference, for sweetening

Method:

  1. Blend yoghurt and milk together.
  2. Add the blueberries and keep blending.
  3. Add honey to the mixture, blend, check sweetness. Adjust sweetness if necessary, and serve.

Notes:

  • You can use vanilla yoghurt – I didn’t want to interfere with the flavour of the blueberries though. Plus, I wanted it sugar-free.
  • You can use all milk or all yoghurt.
  • Add more fruit if you like, blueberries or others.
  • Use a hand blender in a jug or bowl if you can’t use a regular blender.
  • Yield: enough for 3 – 4 cup serves, or 2 big ones. Up to the maker, how it goes around.
