zuke smoothie

It's so much fun heading out to my wee garden in the backyard every day and finding hidden treasures (such as this 10-inch zucchini!).


I thought this one was cute.


I have loads of new zuke recipes to post, but for now, I will leave one of my latest smoothies with you: Blitz 2 bananas, 1/2 fresh pineapple, 1 cup frozen blueberries, toasted wheat germ, flax seed meal, lime juice, 1 zucchini, 2 carrots, 2 celery sticks, a huge handful of spinach, and some plain yogurt. Enjoy in a glass with a straw (somehow I can drink a green smoothie quicker with a straw than without).

I have not yet put a zucchini in my green smoothie but I am going to try it thanks to you. ;-)

Very satisfying using your own home grown veggies. We are snowed under with beans, tomatoes and apples at the moment and I have frozen 9lbs of carrots! Got to do quite a lot more storing before we leave here to visit you next week.
Love Mum

Thanks for visiting Abigail! You must have a much stronger blender than mine. Mine would never do carrots or zucchini. I do have a juicer though, I could juice them and add that to the blender with the other ingredients. Great idea! You're right, Lola wasn't for kids, but definitely for date night. :)
