Hello Adventurers!

I think that this is the perfect non-alcoholic drink to go with your Easter delights.  I think that it adds a brilliant colour to the table, any children will love drinking it… especially in those bunny cups I bought in my Easter haul (link here for the blog post) (link here for the video).  This orangeade recipe will make approximately 800 ml.

Strawberry and Chocolate Smoothie

Hello Adventurers!

This is a smoothie, and milkshake, that I have wanted to make for a long time.  I like strawberries, and love strawberries dipped in chocolate, and that was kind of my thinking around this smoothie.  It is incredibly filling and rich in flavour, as you will see in the list of ingredients.  I originally tried adding just ten grams of cocoa powder to my smoothie and this was way too much!  I think around half that (5g) will be a good flavour combination, for me, but add as little or as much as you like.

This recipe makes around 350ml of this lovely smoothie.  Let’s-a-go! Continue reading “Strawberry and Chocolate Smoothie”

Plain Lemonade

Hello Adventurers!

I LOVE LEMONADE!  It is one of my favourite drinks and I particularly love that I have found a recipe that doesn’t add loads of sugar, sweeteners or fizz.  Particularly the fizz as I have found that fizzy drinks upset my chest so this is a huge bonus.  Let’s-a-go! Continue reading “Plain Lemonade”

PB and J Milkshake

Hello Adventurers!

I have been really enjoying making milkshakes, especially Tuesday’s, link here, and I wanted to make this one as I really wanted to see how the flavour combination worked.  I have seen this mentioned as ‘PB and J’ and that’s what I wanted it to taste like.  Surprisingly, the peanut butter completely overtook the strawberry jam flavour, so I made amendments from that and got it perfect, only taking two tries to get it right YAY!  Let’s-a-go! Continue reading “PB and J Milkshake”

Raspberry Smoothie

Hello Adventurers!

This is a nice quick and simple smoothie that can work with either water or milk.  I think that milk is good for children as it provides them with calcium and gets them one of their five-a-day without them even knowing.  I also think that making this smoothie with water is healthy for adults, whilst also give them their five-a-day.  This recipe makes around 400ml of this lovely smoothie.  Let’s-a-go! Continue reading “Raspberry Smoothie”

Orange Flavoured Water

Hello Adventurers!

Flavoured water is great!  I find it an awesome way of getting water into your system without it being boring.  This is my version of orange flavoured water which is made only using the fruit and has no additional additives which you tend to find in shop-bought products.  Lets-a-go! Continue reading “Orange Flavoured Water”

Virgin Mojito

Hello Adventurers!

Since this is my birthday month, I want to do recipes of food and drink that I love and one of my all time favourite drinks is a virgin mojito.  I am so happy that I now have a recipe so that I can make it for myself at home and I don’t have to wait until I got out to dinner (when I would normally order this drink), to drink it.  This recipe is based on a 250ml glass, lets-a-go!

Creamy Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie

Hello Adventurers!

I really enjoyed making my ‘Strawberries and Cream Milkshake’, link here, and this week I thought I would make something similar.  Today I am going to show you how to make a peanut butter and banana smoothie, I have tried to combine the two in this recipe as I found the recipe lovely and creamy, but it also includes two of my five fruit and veggies a day, so it is still healthy … right?  This recipe makes around 550ml of this lovely smoothie.  Let’s-a-go!
