When Williams-Sonoma contacted me and asked me to share my unique and bizarre smoothie recipe as part of the Not Your Typical Smoothie Challenge I was thrilled!
Having grown up on home-made smoothie before the era of smoothie shops in every shopping mall, I started thinking what I enjoy in a smoothie. The fruits, the milk or yogurt base, warmth of a mild spice to cut through the sweetness of base ingredients and a healthy vegetable which props up the nutrition quotient without overpowering the taste.
And yes, I am a firm believer in the old adage “you taste with your eyes first”. So yes, my smoothie needed to look delish and taste nothing like you’ve tasted before.
A delicious smoothie is like a happy marriage, where several different combinations of flavours and colours come together for a beautiful, tasty treat.
