Bloggers do Spring Better | #Bloggersdoitbetter


Hey Petals!
I hope you all had a nice weekend.
For those who don’t know I am taking part in a blogging challenge called #Bloggersdoitbetter. Basically we are set different topics and we write about them…

ANYWAY.
The topic today is ‘Bloggers do Spring Better’, so I have decided to share my personal smoothie recipe with you all. 

First of all I fill my blender up to the max frozen ingredients line with a variety of frozen summer fruits, I use the Smoothie2Go blender by the way. I use a mixture of fruits that consists of strawberries, raspberries and a forest fruits mix. 
I then pour in some orange juice to fill in the gaps between the berries. 
On top of this I add a chopped banana. 
2 tablespoons of flavoured natural yoghurt, I go for peach and passionfruit flavour.
I then throw in a half tablespoon to a tablespoon of honey as well as a tablespoon of greek yoghurt. 
I then whizz it all up until it is reasonably smooth.
When I am happy with the smoothness I throw in some mango iced tea to add a little bit of flavour and thin out the mixture.

Then I serve, sit back and enjoy1
The best part of my smoothie is that it’s so cheap to make. I buy all my ingredients from Lidl, whilst frozen fruits aren’t the cheapest, Lidl’s orange juice, giant tubs of yoghurt and cartons of mango juice are so affordable. I normally spend in and around €10 on my ingredients and they last me for a good number of smoothies, for both my mum and I. 

I also tend to just throw the ingredients in without having to worry about measurements and they turn out pretty nice everytime.

I hope you enjoyed the first #BloggersDoItBetter challenge topic. Don’t forget to check the hashtag out on Twitter to see the posts from all the other amazing girls taking part.
