‘Budgie Smoothie’ according to my mum…

So it kind of went like this,

Me: “Mum if I wanted to name this smoothie, what would be a good name?”

Mum: “Hmmm, I’m not sure”

Me: whilst holding it and walking next to my budgie: “Omg look, it matches lily(my bird)”

Mum: “That’s it! Name it budgie!”

Me: “No mum that’s weird”

Mum: “Oh shit, you can’t any way, it’s supposed to be vegan”


This yummy smoothie contains:

• Two large handfuls of Spinach and 1 pear.

• A whole mango with half a banana just to thicken it up so that I can layer both flavours because my blender is absolutely rubbish that it can’t really blend frozen fruit. Should probably invest in one. I much prefer frozen fruit to layer. But the smoothie still tastes quite amazing 😌

• Blend the different layers separately and place in the fridge to thicken and cool before pouring it into your glass.



My mum came home about an hour after I made this, walked into the kitchen, looked at the other half of the grapefruit casually laying on the counter by itself, and laughed. She then said, “WHAT on earth are you doing with that grapefruit Christina? I hope it’s not what I’m thinking” and looked at me in the most dirtiest way. If you’ve seen the movie Girls Trip then you’ll know. We both just burst out laughing.
