Alternative title: Some utter git has infected me with the lurgy bug…I have my suspicions as to the identity of this Typhoid Mary and needless to say she won’t be impressed to find the background picture on her desktop changed to a close up photo of a cat’s butt-hole!
“I’m dying…” my brain mumbled through the fog.
“No you’re not, it’s a sniffle…” I mutter back, rubbing my nose.
“A death sniffle…” it bellowed, adamant.
“Pretty sure it’s just a little sniffle” I bellow back, checking the sleeve of my hoody for snot.
“That your professional diagnosis is it? Well where’s your bloody medical degree huh? I know a death sniffle when I…well…sniffle it, Dr. Smart-arse!”
My brain is such a drama queen.
Sighing I traipsed into the kitchen, my body craving something sweet but me not giving in to chocolate due to my (rather stupid) pledge to become healthier this year. Suddenly I knew what I could have to appease this craving, it was like divine intervention (of the ‘I bought these items earlier and stored them in the fridge you forgetful sod’ kind)…I could have blueberries, because my brain for some unknown reason associates blueberries with muffins. Whenever I eat those delightfully purple balls (yes that sounds so wrong) I’m flooded with happy baked goods memories.
So folks…Here is a recipe for a blueberry and ginger smoothie:
1 cup of blueberries (obviously).
1 tsp ginger (or a bit more if you’d like the taste of ginger to kick you in the face).
3/4 cup of unsweetened soya milk.
1 tbsp of 0% fat Greek Style Yogurt (I picked one with honey…For a bit of added sweetness).
Basically you whack it all in a jug or bowl or whatever and blend the heck out of it!
Add some ice cubes if you like…Maybe some cinnamon if you’re feeling adventurous. Whatever floats your boat.
Then relax and enjoy!
