Original recipe of the week: Naughty but nice blueberry and pistachio smoothie
Fancy something naughty but nice this weekend to help it to feel a little like summer? We have been racking our brains to find a recipe that will not only cheer us up in the absence of sunshine, but really give us a sugary boost in this time of gloom.
Packed full of healthy ingredients as well as some naughty ice cream, you really can’t go wrong with this one. Perfect for a Saturday brunch accompaniment or an alternative to coffee, it’s definitely much more than a wake-me-up smoothie.
