Mango, Strawberry & Vanilla Smoothie + A Video + Big News!
This post is now long overdue and I am beyond excited to be sharing it with you today!
First, it’s been a while since I shared any sweet recipe on the blog, and it was definitely time for one. We’ve made a video for it, which is always something exciting to work on. I’d love to hear your feedback, so don’t hesitate to drop me a line to say what you think of it. We’re still complete amateurs as regard to video making/editing, so I always feel a bit nervous about posting one on the blog. Strawberries are the fruit of the moment, and it seems therefore totally appropriate to use them in smoothies (note that you could use frozen strawberries if fresh ones are not in season where you live).
Second...a big piece of news which I literally couldn’t wait to be sharing... There’s a bun in the oven! We are absolutely delighted to be expecting a baby boy for the early autumn. Food blogging during the first term of the pregnancy was sometimes a bit of a challenge as I found myself having aversions for a number of foods, and simply was often not in the mood for talking about food or cooking. But these times already seem quite far behind, and more than ever I am committed to preparing wholesome and delicious meals to nourish myself and the little sprout growing in my belly. Smoothies are the perfect example of healthy snacks that I like to have: they are filling enough to keep me going and packed with the goodness of the ingredients I use in them.
Here is to the beginning of summer and exciting times ahead ;-)
