Girls, I feel like this website was a failed attempt at a beauty blog. I am supposed to post about beauty products, and yet I find myself compelled to post about food -- drinks in particular. Maybe I should rename it to "Drink your calories with Nastia" or something of that sort! Oh well, since I will mostly share healthy recipes, it still has something to do with beauty, right ;)? Anyway, I hope you don't mind my randomness!
Today's drink is a blueberry-banana smoothie that requires no more than 4 easily accessible ingredients. I discovered this little recipe thanks to the book "La bible des smoothies" by Louise Rivard, which offers nearly 200 pages of creative smoothie ideas. This is one of the easiest -- I would love to experiment with the others, but I always lack some ingredient to be able to do so. One day I will have tried them all!
For this one you will only need 1 banana, 80g of blueberries, 60ml of chocolate milk and crushed ice (as well as a blender to mix it all, of course).
Step 1: Throw the banana and blueberries into the blender, and pour the chocolate milk over the fruits.
Step 2: Set your mixture to blend, first slowly, then at a higher speed. Leave it on for about 1 minute: you want your fruits to be well-blended, but be careful not to turn your drink into liquid juice.
Step 3: Stop the blender and add some crushed ice.
Step 4: Blend once more. Again, don't overdo it unless you want your smoothie to become watery. 30 seconds to 1 minute should be fine, depending on the blender you use: just watch over the texture and stop when it becomes smooth, while still remaining thick.
Final step: Pour the mixture in a tall glass, add a straw, go outside and enjoy it while reading a good book :).
I hope you are all making the best of summer! xoxo.
