Sun’s Out, Smoothies Out

No mucking around here with this one so ill be brief – on the rare occasion when we get sun in Ireland everyone takes advantage when they can by heading outdoors, leaving work early or having a BBQ in the backyard or at the beach. Last week was great with temperatures exceeding 25 degree Celsius. This week hasn’t even come close as rain fell all throughout the weekend. But feat not, the sun will be back and when it does arrive be sure to take full advantage and get the smoothies out.

On hot sweltering day I wanted something refreshing and filling st the same time, hence why the choice of ingredients. The best way to describe the flavor is it resembles that of a brunch ice-cream. I wonder if they still make them??

To make this you will need:

200g quark cheese

100ml unsweetened almond milk

1/2 scoop (15-20g) of vanilla whey protein

50g strawberries

1 banana

Ice

For the toppings I used 1 square of 85% dark chocolate and 2 cookies because you know – treat yo self!!

Happy eating,

Shane.
