Mixed Berry Smoothie



Today just for a short while the sun peeped out from behind the clouds and it almost felt like a crisp spring morning.To celebrate the sunshine I whizzed up this mixed berry smoothie for brunch. The vibrant colour really cheered me up and it tasted really amazing.

I also wanted to showcase another addition to my props, namely the two matching milk bottles and  the the pretty mint green ceramic tray. The bottles were rescued from my sisters glass recycling bin and the tray in the picture was a recent Christmas gift from a friend .The tray also comes with matching bowls too so no doubt it will appear in another food picture very soon. Below is the recipe for my Mixed Berry Smoothie.

Mixed berries with low fat yoghurt and a dash of honey.

Ingredients:

120 ml tub light greek muller strawberry yoghurt
125 g / 4 oz mixed frozen berries(blackberries,blue berries,strawberries)
2 tablespoon honey( add more or less to suit taste)
60 ml water

Method:

1. Place the yoghurt, water, honey and berries into a blender jug and whizz them up.
2. Pour the berry smoothie into two milk bottles and serve immediately.

    1. I know the feeling I can't walk past a skip thinking I can take that piece of wood and paint it for food photos.If it wasn't embarrassment of being caught stealing from a skip I would have taken the wood!!! My heart bleeds when I see that aged piece of wood that would be perfect for the photos.
