Summer Fruit Smoothie…

Happy Wednesday!

How beautiful has the weather been lately?

Yesterday it was such a beautiful day.

Blue skies all around.

Not a cloud in sight!!

Hope it stays like this for when the children break up for the school holidays!!

Typically it usually rains!!

I made myself a frozen summer fruit smoothie to cool myself down.

Turns out it was an expensive smoothie as the freezer door didn’t shut properly and everything inside melted!!



I am so not trying not to stress myself out over it!!

How To Make A Summer Fruit Smoothie:

Serves 1

Ingredients :

  • 100g Frozen summer berries
  • 1 Large banana
  • 1 Handful spinach washed
  • 200ml Semi-skimmed milk


  1. Chop the banana, wash the spinach, and place them and the frozen fruit into a smoothie maker. 
  2. Add the semi-skimmed milk and blitz all together until smooth.
  3. Serve straight away.
  4. Yummy!!


How are you keeping yourself cool?

making yummy smoothies or ice lollies?

Have you ever left the freezer door open?

    I do love the look of that… Looks really delicious and refreshing! Yes, the weather has been lovely the past few days! Sadly though, it's a different story today 🙁 Woke up to a mist everywhere. Temperature has dropped and it's even rained! Hopefully the warm days will be back. x

    I do like an occasional smoothie although I do find that they can be quite expensive in terms of a refreshing drink if you are not careful (regardless of whether the freezer door is left open or not!!) I know they may be good for you but sometimes a nice cold glass of water is just as refreshing.

      Thank you Tam, I know what you mean. Sometimes I would like a lot of different things in mine but as you say, they can run expensive..

    The smoothie sounds delicious! I love blending frozen banana and frozen berries for a nice ice cream, which is so delicious and refreshing! :)
