One of the things I like most about the summer is how easily you can get your hands on cheap fruits and berries. Last summer I was wise enough to fill my freezer with berries, pounds upon pounds of berries, and it cost me a mere handful of golden coins. They’ve lasted me until now, and as luck would have it berry season isn’t far off. The reason I love cheap fruit and berries is that you can make delicious smoothies. I love them, and earlier today I made a discovery that made me love them even more. Guess what? Smoothies are better with whisky in them. Maybe not all smoothies, but one of my standard blends certainly is.
Here’s the very simple recipe for anyone who fancies a bit of drinking disguised as being healthy:
- 1 handful (about 10-15) of raspberries
- 1 banana of average length and girth
- 6oz of milk, semi skimmed
- About 1oz of cheap whisky
- A blender of some description
I’m sure you can figure out how to do this all on your own, but I’ll go ahead and write some instructions anyway
- Peel your banana and chop it into no more and no less than 6 exactly equally sized chunks, and put them in a suitable vessel for blending;
- Add the berries, milk and whisky to the very same vessel that houses your banana chunks.
- Blend, pour into a glass (if you’re feeling fancy) and enjoy, preferably in the sun with a good book. I would currently recommend The Heart is a Lonely Hunter which is favorably accompanied by a bit of Kris Kristofferson.
If you want to make it more filling you can add a handful of oats to the mix as well, which if anything makes it even more delicious. Not recommended if you’re looking for something purely refreshing/not filling, however.
