The 'Get Well Mama' Smoothie (TM)

Getting sick in the summer is rough. In Winter, we can cosy up under blankets, eat chicken noodle soup and feel less guilty about not being outside. 

The summer bug has indeed struck me down, and struck me hard, however I have managed to find a little ray of Hawaiian sunshine in it. The Get Well Mama Smoothie (TM). 

For one huge smoothie (or two middling ones) you will need: 

  • 5 large strawberries
  • A handful of blueberries
  • 1 ring of pineapple
  • 1 tbsp of coconut milk
  • 50ml milk
You can completely chop and change this depending on what you're craving. 

Step One: 
Go to the closest London fruit market, or preferably, send someone with a list to go for you. Get strawberries, blueberries and pineapple.

Step Two:
Put the strawberries and blueberries in the freezer for a few hours before you make it if you want a colder treat to bring down a temperature. 

Step Three:
Put the pineapple, coconut milk, strawberries, blueberries and milk in a blender. 

Step Four:
Whizz it. 

Step Five:
Drink it. 

This is one of the first smoothies I've made in ages and it was incredible, as well as being just what my bug needed in the London summer smog.
