Blueberry And Banana Almond Milkshake

It was like the worst cliché-ridden B-grade Zombie flick.

Seconds after the hero congratulates herself and her compadres on a job well done after blowing away what she thought was the last of the un-dead army, there they are again, crashing through the boarded up window of their last-stand farmhouse fortress, sucking the brains out of some poor unfortunate’s ear-hole.

Similarly, I thought I’d beaten this wee bout of cold-type thing completely.

I’d been brazen enough to publicly declare that I was feeling quite better thank you all very much.

Brave words, spoken far too soon.

To be fair, I had been feeling much better, just not a “why not go and sit in a windswept stadium for 2 hours during a sudden drop in temperature in a quite unsuitable jacket” kind of better.

I looked at the ingredients I was supposed to be cooking with, and simply thought, “naaaaaah”.

The women of the house weren’t too upset at all. They popped out for a curry.

I was still hungry, just not up for a full cooked meal.

I listened to my body, and it said “fruity milkshake”.

It also said “small bowl of cashews and a few slices of prosciutto on the side.”

Anyroad, I had a good night’s sleep, and feel much better for it. Again.

Winter jacket back on today, though. And a thick jumper.

Stupid March weather.

Blueberry And Banana Almond Milkshake


  • 250g frozen blueberries
  • 1 large banana
  • 1 litre unsweetened almond milk – you probably won’t use all of it, though
  • desiccated coconut


  • Leave the blueberries at room temperature for 10 minutes or so, to soften up somewhat.
  • Place the blueberries in a 1 litre capacity measuring jug. Add almond milk to cover.
  • With a hand / stick / immersion blender, blitz the blueberries and almond milk down to a smooth consistency.
  • Peel and slice the banana. Add to the jug. Blitz again.
  • Slowly top up the almond milk level in the jug, blitzing as you do so, until you reach the capacity of the jug.
  • Pour the milkshake into glasses. Garnish with a sprinkling of desiccated coconut. Serve.
