Mango Blueberry Smoothie + A Liebster Award

7.12.2012


This is the healthiest I´m eating these days. Or should I say the only somewhat healthy thing I had in the last week. It´s hard to eat right in the winter. I crave stews, hearty soups, chocolate, things that fill up my belly and give me a big hug when I come home, usually cold and hungry.
The smoothie is a great way to use ripe fruit. And to eat fruit. At least better than a daiquiri or such drinks. You also eat fruit that way, ha. 

We are big consumers of fruit smoothies, especially bananas and milk. Are they still smoothies if they don´t have yogurt? I don´t know, but I can´t think of another way to name them. We also drink lots of water based blender drinks, mainly in the summer of course. Peaches or strawberries and orange juice is a very popular one. Never forget some ice. It´s essential. Room temperature smoothies are just not the same. They should have ice. Even in the winter. Like this one. Which also makes you feel good with all those blueberries so full of anti-oxidants. Can you feel the wrinkles refusing to appear? Well, neither do I. 



MANGO BLUEBERRY SMOOTHIE

Ingredients

1 ripe mango, peeled and cut into chunks
¾ cup blueberries
2-3 Tbs honey
½ cup natural yogurt
A few ice cubes

Directions

Put all ingredients in a blender. Pulse for a minute or two, until the mixture is smooth.
Pour into a tall glass and serve.
Serves one or two.



Over to our second theme of the day.

The lovely Ellie, over at The Boo, The Bear and theGoji Berries, gave me this award a few days ago. It´s always heart warming to know that someone enjoys what you post and spends time of their day sharing your thoughts.

In particular, this award is interesting because it has to be passed over to bloggers who have less than 200 followers. You know what they say, You can never be too rich, too thin or have too many blog followers!
Ellie has a blog that focuses in healthy foods, raw and natural ingredients. All the things I have such a hard time with! There are so many interesting recipes and information it´s so worth visiting! She shares a lot of her family life with her husband and two adorable misses.

The five bloggers I am passing this over are:

Create Amazing Meals
Keep it Luce


I visit them at least once or twice a week. Of course they are full of anecdotes and delectable recipes. I hope you make them one of your regular stops also.
