The recipe I made for my lunch today was called Blackberry Smoothie with Kiwis and Papaya and it's on page 36 of 100 Weight Loss Bowls by Heather Whitney.

I modified this one by using blueberries instead of blackberries and nectarine instead of papaya.

The book's photo of the finished dish looks like this:



Their smoothie must have been a lot more firm than mine as this is what mine looked like:



I did like the flavours of the smoothie overall. I didn't think the kiwi really worked, personally. Although, I did like the nectarine.

And, the smoothie was far too thin. If I were going to make it again, I would use half a frozen banana instead of fresh as that would thicken it somewhat.

Overall, I rate it 3/5.

    Although I'm not a smoothie person, it sounds tasty. I agree with your changes. And they never turn out like the pictures!

    I just bought greek yogurt light. It mixes well in most stuff and healthy.
