In April you would expect April showers, but this year the rain was scarce. Last week we got some April Snow instead of April showers. It just lasted for half an hour and melted. The feel of spring is not in the air yet, because most of the days its cloudy and cold.
I see a flock of deer in my front yard most of the mornings. They are out to reveal the presence of Spring by nibbling the tender tips of our tulips. These were the special tulips my hubby got from Netherlands, but the lucky ones to enjoy them are the deer. I literally gave up on tulips from last year.
Last weekend was a sunny day even though the temperature was in the 40's. I heard the lawn mower of our neighbors outside. After such a long break of staying inside, everyone wants to come out in the sun and do something even though it is chilly. Being a food blogger, the sunshine means time to click. The easiest thing I could make was a smoothie before the sunshine fades. When I made the first batch and took the pictures, my little ones came and asked if they could have it. I gave them a small quantity to test because they like loads of sugar in the smoothie and I didn't add any in this smoothie. To my surprise they asked for more and they finished everything. I had to make another batch for rest of us.
Serves - 2
2 - Apples cored, peeled and cubed
1 - medium size ripe banana peeled
2 - Strawberries hulled and quartered
1 cup - cold water
- Blend all the ingredients in a blender and enjoy them immediately with few pieces of ice.
- This smoothie should be enjoyed when it is fresh, otherwise it will change its color.
- I didn't add any sugar/honey to the smoothie as it was already sweet. You can add sugar/honey as per your taste.
