Dark Chocolate and Cherry Smoothie Recipe

What you need

  • 2 apples
  • 10 cherries
  • 1/2 a banana
  • 50 g of dark chocolate

What to do

Cut the apples into wedge shapes, put them through a juicer and pour the juice into your blender. Chop up the cherries and pick out of stones as you go. Add the sliced banana and cherry pieces to the blender as well. This is my favourite part: melting the chocolate and licking the spoon! Grab a saucepan and a little boiling water, keep it on a low heat and insert a heat-proof jug into the boiling water. Then break up your chocolate into small pieces, place these into your jug and stir with a wooden spoon as it slowly melts. Once the chocolate has completely liquidized , add it to the blender and give it a final whizz. You can lick the spoon while it blends! ( (This recipe makes two small glasses, if you want to make more, just double the amounts.) This recipe idea, was taken from the Innocent Smoothie Recipe Book.

Potato Salad Recipe

This delicious salad can be made the day before -as I did- thrown in the fridge and pulled out, a few hours before serving.

What you need 

  • 8oo g of new potatoes
  • 3 tbsp of mayo
  • 3 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp of white wine vinegar
  • a small handful of fresh chives
  • salt and pepper to taste

What to do

First peel your potatoes, it can be boring so I crank up the radio and listen to my favourite tunes!

Then, you cut them into bite-size chunks, before putting them in. Add plenty of boiling water and a pinch of salt and boil for 20 mins. Drain and allow to cool. Then, add the mayo and gently mix together. Try and keep from mushing the potatoes up too much if you can! Then mix in the oil and vinegar, and add salt and pepper to taste.  Don’t forget the chives, chop them finely and sprinkle over your potato salad!

Enjoy:-) Amber x
