Morning Mocktail: Starburst Smoothie

2012, as you're all probably sick of hearing by now, is the Year of the Dragon. *does best dragon impression* Grrr. So, we've all got a great excuse to be fiery and temperamental, not to mention grumpy-as-hell in the morning. Hurrah!

If you're in dire need of a Chinese New Year-themed smoothie (and, let's face it, who isn't?) then I've concocted something splendid just for you. Scrummy!

(Oh, and I've included this You Tube video because I think it's funny, not because I think it's a genius idea ... of course not ...)

You'll need (for two smoothies):
  • One dragon fruit (that's pretty much the extent of the Chinese New Year theme, btw)
  • One kiwi (which are also known as Chinese gooseberries, so the theme continues ...)
  • Handful of strawberries (nope, no Chinese link there ...)
  • One banana
  • 1/4 of a watermelon
  • Crushed ice or a scoop of ice cream
  • 400 ml milk

Shake it!

  • Chop all your fruit into chunks.
  • Pop the milk, ice cream or ice into a blender.
  • Add the fruit and blitz until smooth. If the mixture is too thick then add more milk.
  • Pour into smoothie glasses and garnish with something festive ... perhaps a fortune cookie or a little Chinese lantern?
