If you're anything like me, you crave sweets all the time. When you're trying to lose a little winter weight (yeah still) and the pastries and cakes are calling your name, try this little concoction to sate your cravings. It works for me, and it gives me a chance to use my awesome Magimix, which I recently caved and purchased. Let me just state that I am not on commission from them, but Magimix are fucking awesome. Seriously, you will compulsively want to chop and blend everything in your kitchen. It's so easy and quiet and non-scary (I have a mild phobia of kitchen paraphernalia after seeing my dear Mum cut herself on every concievable device ever invented, the poor thing) and seriously is the best kitchen investment I've made. I wish I had bought it years ago.
Anyway this little blended drink is super quick and easy. Obviously. Er. You don't even need a Magimix- I bet a little handheld unit would work well too. Just chop up some strawbs, add a banana, a squirt of runny honey, and about a cup or cup and a half of ice and blend that shit to death. The good thing about my new mixer is that I can press the button and wander off (or spend about two minutes on Instagram before getting bored of the photos of peoples' feet) before returning to a perfectly smooth drink/dessert. I think I'm going to try strawberry, lemon, and basil soon. I ordered something similar in a restaurant in America once and it was (though insanely sugar-laden) really yummy. I think a healthier option shan't be too hard- especially with my new kitchen buddy. Maybe if I mention Magimix enough times they'll send me free shit. Like, er, more Magimixes? Magimixii? Then I could do a giveaway! Between the four readers I have, that's like...a 50/50 chance. (Can you tell Banoo is the mathematician around here?). SNORT.
Also, when did summer creep up? It's hot today. Go Finland!
