Pear, Banana and Peanut Butter Smoothie

I have been very pleased with this one lately. We used pear juice as filler or thinner for our smoothies at the shop all the time, because it has a mellow sweet taste that blends well with just about any other flavor. So I guess it’s no surprise that pear and banana (the two most common fruit bases) would get along harmoniously with each other to make a mild, creamy foundation that lets other ingredients stand out easily.

Raspberry Banana Smoothie

But first, a brief moment whilst I pat myself on the back for completing the migration of seven-ish years of posts from VKFood to this blog.

General life updatish.

Wow, haven’t been on LJ for ages. I’m posting here because my personal blogs are experiencing technical difficulties. Will repost there when things are cleared up. Anyway, this is a huge updatish post for everybody that I meant to talk to but haven’t been able to yet. Hope it explains things a bit and that I’ll get to chat with you soon. PS.

So the last half year has …
