World’s Best Summer Smoothie

World’s Best Summer Smoothie

So, I know that I seem to have completely abandoned my blog recently, as I have been so super busy, but I’m trying to get back on track, and to make it up to all of you I have an extra special blog post today, as Alice, from MiniStephens.co.uk, wants to share her favourite Summer smoothie with you all!!

When my family  and I bought our “Nutri Ninja” Blender earlier this year, we jumped straight onto the internet, to find new smoothie recipes we could try out in a bid to attempt to be a bit healthier. Well, months later we barely use the blender, however, one recipe I love making in the blender is Strawberry and Banana smoothie. The two fruits seem to mix together perfectly and make a tasty and refreshing Summery drink, perfect for hot days.

Strawberry and Banana Smoothie:

With this recipe, it is a bit of trial and error with how much of each fruit and milk/water you need to use. However, this is the amount I use in my version of the smoothies. The amount I use also makes about 2/3 glasses full.



  •  1 Banana
  • 125g of Strawberries
  • 1 ½ Cups of Milk
  • ½ Cup of Greek or Vanilla Yoghurt


  • Cut the Banana up roughly into small pieces
  • Cut the Strawberries in half or into quarters – whichever you think is more suitable depending on the size of the strawberries you are using
  • Place the strawberries, banana, milk and yoghurt into the blender – measuring the milk and yoghurt as you go.
  • Blend the mixture until it’s smooth
  • Pour equally amongst the amount of glasses you have and enjoy!

I hope you enjoy this refreshing drink – it really makes you feel Summery and is great to drink on a sunny morning or afternoon!

New Baby Chick!!

New Baby Chick!!

This morning we had a very special member added. We keep a few chickens, currently seven, and last month we decided to let one of our chickens sit on some eggs. Currently she is sitting on three eggs. Yesterday we saw that one of the eggs had a little crack in it. I was really hoping that the chick would hatch during the night, so that I could see it immediately in the morning when I wake up. I was so excited!

Here is our chicken, Fancy Pants (don’t you just love the name), on top of her three eggs.

Anyway. This was the amazing surprise that we found whilst we were up the garden at about 8 o’clock this morning. At this point in time the chick must have only just hatched, due to it still being so weak so wet. My mum went to check on the egg at about 7 o’clock in the morning to find that it hadn’t hatched quite yet, so we were very lucky on finding it so soon after it hatching!

This is a couple of hours later, and you can just about see a little chick peeping out from underneath Fancy.

This is how the little baby chick looks now, all fluffy!! At this point the chick is already so much stronger and moving around just fine, chirping away loudly! For the time being all we can see of the chick’s appearance is that it is a fully black chick, just like the Silkie male (which it is mixed with), with no definite markings on it. It is such an adorable little baby chick, and I am so pleased with how well it is currently doing! So cute!!
