Recipe || Blueberry, Banana and Mint Smoothie + New Hair Color!

August 07, 2014

Eversince I have a blender I invent and/or taste new smoothie recipes almost every week - pasta sauces, too, by the way. I start my morning with the usual glowing green smoothie as breakfast, but I love to vary with other ingrediënts, too. It is endless. Anyhoo: when I saw a delish smoothie recipe on Instagram, which the beautiful Acid Doll posted ( yes ladies and gents, the brunette beauty has a blog now, too, yay ), I decided to share my version of the smoothie; it has the same ingrediënts and a few more.

Smoothies are a bit of a lifesaver for me and without them (and coffee obviously) I cannot start the day. I am a terrible person for breakfast, but this liquid stuff is easy, healthy and delicious on the stomach in the early morning. It also doesn't lock horns with my nostalgic diet: nope, the smoothie was already being consumed in the 1930s but ofcourse not to the extend like these days.

Before I get on with the ingredients of the blueberry smoothie, I wanted to introduce you to my new haircolor. Sadly the photo doesn't show the true color; the photo (probably due to the instagram filter) shows a more brown-ish color whilst it is actually more red. But you get the picture (no pun intended).

You see me and my inseparable Starbucks Seattle Latte. Starbucks, oh, I love you. When I was on a city trip in London a couple of years ago, our hotel, the Thistle Victoria hotel, was attached to an indoor train station and it had a starbucks. Yep, I was in heaven and everytime when I came home from activities in London, and before retiring to bed, I bought a huge cup of Starbucks coffee. Bliss.

Anyhoo, without further London-loving ado: does the hair color suit me? You must forgive me, as this picture has been taken with my smartphone, but I do have some outfit pictures on my agenda for upcoming week - and with that better hair pictures. I tend to go a few shades darker, but I had to use 4(!) packages to reach this result (going from platina blonde to auburn-ish is quite the chore) so, suffice to say that my hair is less pleased and I need to give it some rest to recover from this sudden shock.

Now, the smoothie!

  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 banana, chopped
  • 4 tbsp. Greek yogurt
  • bunch of fresh mint leaves
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • ½ cup goat's milk

Put in blender and blend until desired consistency is reached. And that is that!

  5. I think the new hair color is very flattering to your skin tone, Lindsay! Coupled with the red lipstick gives you a vintage vibe. And I mean that positively. Did you use henna on this? It would be great if you can do a post about dyeing hair. :)

    1. Thank you very much dear Elizabeth! I am not sure if a tutorial of me on dying hair would be of use, since I struggle with it myself and usually my boyfriend lends a hand.

      I did not use henna but dye from a drugstore.
