Blueberry Kiwi Ginger Smoothie

Oh boy. I know. I really know. I've been totally neglecting the blog. Totally. 

I'm sorry. I don't know if anyone cares. But I care. This blog has been good to me and in return I have ignored it. I have good excuses: 1. I got married and 2. I got a job. So, yeah. I've been busy. But I still feel like a lame-o. I've been stockpiling recipes and photos so expect some posts to come. Soon. That's a promise. I even have a pile of unblogged wintery recipes from my Christmas hampers which I will be cracking out now that it's summertime. Ho ho ho.

But in the mean time here's a quickie. We were given a Magic Bullet Blender as a wedding present and I've pretty much used it every day since it arrived. It is amazing. I haven't even explored all the things it can do other than smoothies; soups, pesto, chopped nuts, rubs, dips, cocktails. The list goes on and I can't wait to explore. Mainly I've been making smoothies and here's my favourite:


Frozen fruit is ideal to have on hand for quick smoothies and speedy frozen yoghurts. I usually have a raspberries, blueberries, mango chunks and a bag of mixed berries stashed in the deep freeze. We've been starting our days with a smoothie a lot lately, which is a great way to start the day and you can be infinitely creative with what you throw in the blender. This this one is my favourite and so simple:

Kiwi, Blueberry and Ginger Smoothie

3 Kiwis, peeled and sliced
2 handfuls of frozen blueberries
1 tsp finely grated ginger (I keep mine in the freezer, it's easier to grate)
Apple juice

Bung it all in a blender and top up with apple juice. Blend blend blend. Drink drink drink.

Oh and here's a picture of me and D getting wed. This is the dude who inspired me to get into food and then write a blog about it. I can never thank him enough, but I will continue to try. 


And this is what we ate:


Hell, yeah.
