Strawberry Vanilla Smoothies

At the weekend, as you will probably have gathered from my previous posts, it was hot. It was too hot to even eat! All we really wanted was ice, ice lollies, ice cream or yoghurt. So we reached a happy medium by combining a few key ingredients to make smoothies!

  • 2 Tubs of Vanilla Fat Free Yoghurt (flavour, amount and nutrition values can change as per what you’d like)
  • 1 punnet of strawberries (hulled)
  • 2 glasses/cups/mugs of ice cubes
  • 1 dash of coconut and pineapple juice (optional but reccomended!)

Basically, we chucked all of the ingredients into the blender thingy-bob and mushed it up for about 2 minutes and it was pretty near to perfect. Added in the slug of juice (because we forgot before) and it was perfect. Smoothie’s are not an exact science and googling turfs up all sorts of concoctions – but if you like them plain and simple, this is your flavour!

In other news – three blogs in as many days? I guess it’s the weather going to my head…but I’ve honestly missed this, I’ve missed photography, blogging and in general just talking about nonsense for a few paragraphs and have people ‘liking it’ to stroke my ego. More please!

“We all like chicken”

I tried making a new dish today, after having something that tasted very nice at the Pub last week. Salt & Pepper Chicken! We began with dicing up all the ingredients, finding lots of things in the cupboard to throw in, and chopping up the chicken. Therefore there isn’t a specific recipe…but honestly it tasted so good, so here goes!

  • Chicken Fillets
  • 1 Cup of flour (this is an english ‘cup’ so an actual mug, not an American measuring of a cup!)
  • 1 teaspoon of chinese five spice
  • 2 teaspoons of salt
  • 2 teaspoons of ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons of garlic granules or 1 clove of fresh garlic
  • A sprinkling of ginger chopped up finely
  • Spring Onions chopped up finely
  • 2 Red Peppers chopped finely
  • 1 green chilli and 1 red chilli de-seeded and chopped up small

Firstly cut your chicken into strips, fairly thin ones, but not too thin! Then mix the spices, salt, pepper, garlic and flour together in a bowl and add the strips of chicken, coating them well in the mixture. Mix together your ginger, spring onions, red peppers and chilli and fry them together separately with some chilli flakes and coriander. Fry your chicken in a small amount of oil in a very hot pan until it’s golden and crispy. Gradually add to the pan with the mixed vegetables in until you have a huge stir fry type dish.

We served ours up with spaghetti/pasta strands and it went down really well! Keep aside some spare peppers and spring onion in case yours did what mine did, and completely disappear in the frying process! Finally, wash hands before touching eyes – chilli hurts!
