A few weeks back, the discovery of a hand-held immersion blender amongst an array of random kitchen items brought a smile to my face. It is one of my favorite kitchen appliances and I began having visions of smoothies and hummus and falafel. Thankfully, it was in working condition, unlike most things I come across. When we were submerged in bunches of bananas recently, I started making banana milkshakes for Alastair with milk powder. After a hankering for falafel, I taught the kitchen guys the simple recipe and we’ve been enjoying them for lunch with a lemon tahini sauce…yum! But most recently I’ve come up with a concoction that pleases Alastair to no end. It’s a simple blend of fresh orange juice, pineapple and banana. I’m not sure if it is the pineapple here that makes it so special but it is fantastic.
