Super Bloody Blue Smoothie

By Cakeyboi

Since we moved house, it’s been a case of seeing where certain kitchen equipment fits. We’ve moved from a smallish flat to a house with a lot more space. It’s been good to have the room to store all my baking equipment away. In fact we have a floor to ceiling cupboard in our utility room which is now literally crammed with all my baking items, christened the ‘Baking Cupboard’.
We also have a cupboard in the kitchen, which the previous owner of the house referred to as the ‘gloryhole’ when we came to view it. We kind of like that name and it has stuck...Some of my other kitchen equipment has ended up resident in the gloryhole such as the food mixer, food processor and Optimum 9400 from Froothie, which you may remember me using in the past.I decided to get it out of the gloryhole, to give it a whirl in it’s new kitchen. And I wanted to make a smoothie for my breakfast on Saturday morning.
Sometimes with smoothies, I find you are dictated by what fruit and veg you have leftover from the week. This weekend I found some baby plum tomatoes and blueberries in the freezer. I also had some bananas and soya milk in the fridge and it was as easy as that!

I popped the frozen tomatoes in the Optimum 9400, along with the frozen blueberries, banana and 500 ml of soya milk (which I had in the fridge, any milk would be fine)  and gave it a whirl.

The resultant drink tasted of freshness. No wonder with superfoods tomatoes and blueberries in there. It was naturally sweet from the sweetness of the tomatoes and banana, so there was no need for any added sweetener.
As for the name I’ve given it? Bloody as in Bloody Mary (minus the vodka of course) with the blue of the berries.

This was a great drink to wake up to and set me up for the morning. It was filling and tasty and gave me loads of energy for the day ahead.
I used frozen fruit which the Optimum 9400 blitzes through effortlessly. But unfrozen works just as well.
Here’s how I made it;
