Summer Smoothies

We have a rather robust patch of raspberry canes in the backyard so each morning for the past few weeks Eloise and I have started our days with berry picking. The raspberries are super plump, sweet and a delightful addition to Eloise's morning smoothie, even if it is hard to restrain myself from eating them all before we get back inside.

I'm not great at getting 'creative' smoothies to taste very good so we keep ours simple: 1 banana, a handful of frozen strawberries, a handful of fresh raspberries, a scant-handful of spinach if we have it, about a cup of yogurt and a splash of milk or orange juice, blended. 

Eloise loves that her summer smoothies are pink - the colour of the moment - and
I'm just happy she's eating something healthy and homemade.
