Recipe: Tropical Smoothie
This is a really nice smoothie I made yesterday with some fruit that was becoming a bit too ripe in the fruit bowl- smoothies are just great for that purpose. Nick laughed at me when i said as part of my unviersity degree we had to make smoothies in groups- he was like, hah, how easy is University these days- Whatever!! It's a bit more complicated than blending fruit in our degree, we had to trail loads of different types and then test it for ph, and wait until we had created a smoothie that had a suitable ph level as well as good flavour, and then we had to pasteurise it, and then over the next three weeks after that we had to do bacterial analysis on petri dishes, and now we have to write a 2000 word lab report on it. Not just a smoothie now hey?? Haha! Shall have to put my "Lab Smoothie" recipe up here as well at some point too, it actually tasted awesome.
