Mandi was very kind to give me a smoothie maker and it did take me a while to learn that you have to put the liquid in first before the fruit otherwise you get a lumpy rather than a smoothie!!!!!!

Now I've been experimenting - obviously - and have made some lovely smoothies but today.................

I had some fresh strawberries, apricots and bananas - staple ingredients but then I remembered I had a tub of yoghurt - coconut and white chocolate - mmmmmmmm then I had some fresh apple juice and put them together and while I was whizzing this about, I found some vanilla ice-cream and put in a couple of scoops of that.

Well it whizzed for a while and then this gorgeous thick smoothie was ready.......


I poured some in my glass, all gooey and ploppie and it's just so creamy and delicious and I'm so glad that I made a good amount - I'm in heaven at last!!!!!!!!!!! LOL
