The summer bug has indeed struck me down, and struck me hard, however I have managed to find a little ray of Hawaiian sunshine in it. The Get Well Mama Smoothie (TM).
For one huge smoothie (or two middling ones) you will need:
- 5 large strawberries
- A handful of blueberries
- 1 ring of pineapple
- 1 tbsp of coconut milk
- 50ml milk
You can completely chop and change this depending on what you're craving.
Go to the closest London fruit market, or preferably, send someone with a list to go for you. Get strawberries, blueberries and pineapple.
Put the strawberries and blueberries in the freezer for a few hours before you make it if you want a colder treat to bring down a temperature.
Put the pineapple, coconut milk, strawberries, blueberries and milk in a blender.
This is one of the first smoothies I've made in ages and it was incredible, as well as being just what my bug needed in the London summer smog.
