Smooth operator

My fridge is working again. Hooray! Cold food. Vegetable crisper. You don't realise how handy they are until they're gone. And I managed not to spill my breakfast all over the kitchen, unlike yesterday (there are mornings when I really miss caffeine lol).

To celebrate, and just in case I'm not the last person in the world to work this out, here's my smoothie secret....frozen banana slices. I slice up bananas and freeze them in 1/2 banana serves. Throw them in the smoothie with a cup of milk/soy milk, some protein powder if you want, and a few frozen or fresh berries or mango or something and whiz it all up (make sure you whiz it for awhile to correctly smoosh all the banana - and yes, smooshing is the correct smoothie making term). The frozen banana makes it go all thick and creamy...you'd swear you'd put ice-cream or frozen yoghurt in it but no, nothing but fruit and milk. Plus you don't need to add ice! A great summer breakfast, quick and healthy. If you add the protein powder it will keep you fuller longer.

Now I have to run and get ready to go to lulus for a day of critting, laughing and eating yummy things.
