Summer Berry Smoothies

We recently acquired a new blender (this one if you're interested - Amazon affiliate link) and, as a result, have rediscovered our love for smoothies. Luckily for us, this coincided with receiving some vouchers from Tesco for money off their summer berries and cherries range, which meant we #TriedForLess.

Here I'm getting things started, with bananas, raspberries, and blueberries...


 
 
You may notice this isn't our new blender - that was waiting to be washed, so using our old smoothie maker in the meantime.

Nonetheless, blueberries are supposed to be very good for you, so here's 'recipe' 2 - pour out my partner's raspberry smoothie and now add a small handful of blueberries (about 40-50g):
 
 
The result is clearly darker:


 
 
The downside of the blueberries is that they do make more of a mess of whatever you're drinking out of - but that's what the dishwasher is for!
