Oooh, this glass of sparkles wasn’t originally intended for the blog but caused such a splash on Facebook and Instagram this morning, I promised the recipe ASAP!

Now if you’re anything like me, your favourite ‘Sunday Fundays’ begin with an icy cold smoothie.

This smoothie started out as my Lovebug’s craving for the Strawberry Shortcake Smoothie from the Dessert SuperSmoothies eBook but morphed into something else… something just as delicious – a super healthy treat with a kind of ‘white chocolate with tangy berries’ flavour.

Best of all?  No pre-soaking required for this one and you can whiz it up in a regular blender if you cut the banana and strawberries into small pieces before freezing them.  Or skip the strawberries completely and mix it up with any kind of berry you love.  I mixed strawberries with blackberries, raspberries, blueberries and red currants, all of which pack a powerful antioxidant punch.

The perfect punch to power the rest of your day – whatever mischief you decide to get up to.

    This ‘fool’ looks (and sounds) delightful.
    I shall make them for Afternoon Tea for the munchkins and I, today.
    Thanks so much for sharing. xx 🙂

      Absolutely, Rika, although the taste won’t be as ‘dessert-like’. You could leave the almond meal out altogether or even pop in a few whole cashews or almonds instead. 🙂 x

    I really enjoyed your free E-book & already made everything in it, Bex! It was beautifully styled, in lovely colours & very well written & explained too!

    My husband agreed with me ! ☺
