I made this smoothie (and took these pictures) last Sunday when we saw the first sunny skies after what felt like an eternity of grey ones. I decided to snap the photos on our patio since the outdoor light was so gorgeous. These photos also give you a little sneak peak into what my shoots actually look like.  I was at a friend’s apartment earlier this week and someone asked me where I shoot my photos, thinking I had some gorgeous space in my apartment. I wish! It’s usually on a cloth on my living room floor. Admittedly that was getting a little dull, so it’s a nice change of pace to be able to shoot outdoors.

Are you a smoothie drinker? I just started drinking them this winter when I was positively sick of the fruit selection in the store. I don’t eat too many frozen foods, but peach and berry season is so frustratingly short, I’ve really gotten into stocking up on the frozen variety. There’s something about the color of this smoothie that is so refreshing. Now that a new fruit season is right around the corner, I’m looking forward to making some smoothies using actual fresh fruit!

I hope you all have a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend! I’m so excited my mom’s coming to town and we get to have a proper celebration! See you next week. xx

    love the images and the new look of the blog! do you have a blender that you love or would suggest? i really do not want to have to buy a $600 vitamix, yet “everyone” says its the only way to go. ideally i would like to make simple smoothies and soups, perhaps nut-mylks too….thanks!

    Thank you! I do not have a Vitamix, nor do I think you need one to make simple smoothies. I have an Oster brand one that is several years old which I use to make smoothies. It could also blend soup, but prefer to use my immersion blender for that (just personal preference). I haven’t tried making any but milks, but if mine can crush ice- I can’t imagine it would have trouble with nuts! So in short, I think you could definitely get away with one under $50. Hope that helps!

    Hi Clara! It was so great to reconnect w/ you in Toronto if even for a brief few moments. I am addicted to your blog and so happy for you and your business. I must say I am intimidated by my own kitchen. I am one of those folks who buy every single gadget /appliance for ONE receipe and then feel overwhelmed with where to start so I rarely every cook. Your recipes have given me the courage to enjoy my kitchen and all my kitchen toys. I thought I would start easy and this smoothie was perfect. Used my vita-mix for the first time in over a year and I got Jim to drink soy milk without even knowing. So a win-win for both of us! Super excited about trying more of your recipes soon. Thanks for the inspiration and the lovely blog. :)

  5. I am going to try this recipe too! This will be a great day of trying new stuff. lol Thanks!
