My blender and its Efes glass drinking partner
If I was asked what was my most important possession at this point of time I would have to say my hand-held blender. Drinking the smoothies I produce with this blender give me great joy, particular whilst the spring/summer fruits are around. Almost all the fruit-based smoothies are unique as I base the recipe upon the ingredients I have in the fridge at the time.
Below are some example recipes. The instructions for all are: Prepare fruits into manageable pieces; add ingredients to a jug or large glass and blend until smooth. For a colder drink, add ice, either before or after blending.
mint (dried or fresh although fresh is best)
roasted skinless peanuts
Almond Magnum (icecream)
Baileys Irish Cream (or similar liqueur)
optional: vanilla flavoured vodka for that killer-touch
The last recipe is one I first drank at Adelaide Casino after winning some money. Like a casino, the drink is very rich, although somewhat classier.
