Here's to Friends Smoothie



Our family moves around. I’m well experienced at being the new kid. I’m also incredibly fortunate to have close, amazing friends all around Australia.

These exceptional friends have consumed my mind lately. Old friends, who now live far away. The ones who took me under their wing because I was the youngest, the smallest, the silliest. The friends who came next wiped my sleep deprived tears as I cared for my precious newborn with a husband working long days and my family a state away. Now I’m here, and although it has been a long journey I’m feeling settled. I’ve made friends who encourage me to be better then I am, who support me when I want to grow, and who stepped out of their comfort zone to welcome me in. For those who have known me for a lifetime, before my travels begun, you have a place in all of the above.

And now to the smoothie. It is an old familiar favorite, so it ties in beautifully here. I cannot go long without meeting up with this one. It never disappoints, it is simple and flexible and so often just what I need.

Let’s Drink to Friends Smoothie

1 frozen banana

1 cup of frozen grapes

1-2 lebenese cucumbers

small handful of mint

1 cup of water

Blend and enjoy!

This is one of my all time favorites too B – I think you passed this on to me in my very early green smoothie days 🙂

Thank you Nichole. It may have been one of my first also and I still love it!

Mmm sounds so good I must try it Bianca. I’ve not been a smoothie girl. So do you use it as a refreshing drink, to finish a meal or as a meal replacement? Excuse my ignorance. It does sound so very good.

Hi Cheryl, I love your questions and thank you for checking in, nothing to be sorry for. I often have this smoothie mid afternoon, as a snack. It would also be great for breakfast followed by fruit mid morning, or as a meal replacement on days when you want a lighter option. All of the smoothies to date are perfect for starting your journey with green smoothies. ‘Pumping Some Green Protein’ is a little heavier and great as a meal replacement, or when you are feeling quite hungry, or post work out – https://wholefoodsimply.com/pumping-some-green-protein/
I consider ‘First Date with Green Smoothie’ the perfect option for beginners – https://wholefoodsimply.com/smooth-sundays/
And ‘Here’s to Friends’ is delicious and refreshing. These three options are some of my favourites.
You must try one, you wont look back. I look forward to hearing from you after your first taste. Enjoy!

I love you to B……
Just need you to pop on the kettle and share a smoothie. I shall make one in the morning for all us Simpson Clan. Perhaps you can share a favourite recovery smoothie for my Spunkyboy as well.

Thanks Paige! I am working on a recovery smoothie but I’m hoping Chris is better before I get it up! Enjoy your smoothie, I would love to be making it for you. x
