Howzit, Kristina here again. Hope you enjoyed the last chat I had with you about the colorful process of making your very own smoothie. I also hope that it inspired many of you who had never done this before to go on and make your very first smoothie. But I hope that you never, ever just simply copy and pasted from hundreds of already available online smoothie recipes. No guys, this has nothing to do with plagiarism and cheating, no, not that sort of thing.
As far as I’m concerned, it has a lot more to do with being creatively inspired to concoct your own ingredients as you go along. And in this post, I’ll be inspiring you towards helping yourself to a strawberry smoothie recipe or two. I’ve done this for a while already and I can tell you it’s a whole lotta fun. Kids will love this. A later post is going to be devoted entirely to kids and the kind of smoothies and their flavors that should have great appeal to kids. Kids love being creative. And so do I. This post will continue the creative process that was started in the previous post.
And today’s post is gonna be devoted entirely to the fruit loops of this world.
THE SIMPLE PROCESS OF MAKING A GREEN SMOOTHIE
But I ended my last post on a rather sweet note, didn’t I. Remember I wanted to fill you in on some of my thoughts on the simplicity of making a delightful green smoothie from a very easy to follow green smoothie recipe, whether you’ve picked it up from the internet, from me, or made it up yourself. And guys, I know it’s still early days for some of you, but I really hope you’re starting to put things together on your own steam. Yes, of course, you’ll still need to glean from others. That’s for inspiration and a new pipe of ideas.
I mean, really, we can’t all be Nigella Lawsons or Jamie Olivers now can we. And guess what; they make smoothies too. Especially Jamie Oliver, he’s a real health nut these days. And he’s doing great things for the school kids too. He’s pushing all the right buttons when it comes to getting multinationals to change their wicked ways and start packing healthy foodstuffs on our supermarket shelves for a change.
I got off the point. Sorry. Wanted to tell you about how easy it is to make smoothies. Actually, it’s so easy; I won’t need to give you step by step lectures. A few points here and there maybe, but that’s about all. What I can say at this stage is that if I can make a strawberry or chocolate smoothie then you can too.
A NOTE ON GREEN FINGERS
Before I forget, let me quickly tell you about green fingers. You know what that is, right. Okay, so lemme tell those of you who don’t quickly. A person who has green fingers is someone who spends hours and hours in his garden. He has a real passion for planting trees and cultivating flowers. These days, now, more than ever, he’s growing vegetables too. It’s part of the new wave of doing things organic. You should start taking this to heart.
I really think it’s going to be something well worth pursuing. Do I have green fingers? No, not yet, anyway. But I do have smooth fingers. Blending my own fruits and vegetables to make fantastic smoothies is really no bother. And it’s easy on the fingers too once you get the hang of things. No ifs or buts and no cuts or bruises. Making your own smoothies is a smooth operation, I tell you.
THE FRUIT LOOP PHILOSOPHY
Now, guys, before I go any further, I want to tell you this quickly. While putting this post together I had been thinking about this. I saw how the last post turned out. It wasn’t bad, was it? But then you saw I left a couple of things out that I had included in my original blog post outline. Now that I think about it, I think this overflow of ideas and themes will work really well in this blog. You can already see how my style is, oh so, original.
That’s how you know its Kristina Smooth talking to you. And no one else. So, here’s the idea. If I’m having a go at strawberry smoothies here, and the story’s not quite finished by the time I reach this blog post’s word limit, I’ll be carrying across ideas or themes I had in mind here into the next post, which is going to be about mango smoothies, by the way. I think it’s going to keep the blog on smoothies really interesting and you guys can also make your own contributions, didn’t you know.
STRAWBERRY FIELDS FOREVER
My content manager is looking for this approach. She tells me it’s going to reach out to more readers soon enough. I like where this is going, don’t you. Anyway, it couldn’t be helped. Thinking about strawberry smoothies and all, I couldn’t help thinking about one old song called Strawberry Fields Forever. It was before my time and played out by a band called The Beatles. The prudes say that these guys were singing about drugs and stuff, which, kids, none of you should be taking, but, you know what, we can listen to the song and think only of the real strawberries and the strawberry-flavored smoothies we’re going to be making.
So, you see what I mean. I didn’t even get around to listing a few cool ingredients to put into that new blender of yours to make your first strawberry-inspired smoothie. I also wanted to talk a bit more about the value of natural sweeteners as opposed to processed and refined white sugar. So, let’s roll these over into the next post. That will be cool. That next post will be even more chockfull interesting.
