Strawberry, Apple, & Banana Smoothie

Strawberry, Apple, & Banana Smoothie

I’ve been on a homemade smoothie kick lately. Not in an effort to eat better (although it does help), but just because… they taste good! It also helped that I recently got a Juice Extractor & Smoothie Attachment for my Magimix that is out of this world awesome. I also received a case (as in a dozen) packages of strawberries from Parkesdale Farm Market in Plant City, Florida shortly after receiving my attachment. The timing could not have been more perfect. After I juiced quite a few fresh strawberries, I then cleaned up the rest of the strawberries and froze them for future tasty smoothies.

Over Christmas break (well it was break for me, I had 12 days off from work) I decided to take some time to get to know my camera better and move into manual mode. This was my first recipe I shot in manual. Over all, I’m beyond pleased with how my photos came out. Sure, there are things I can do to improve, but its a start. A start toward one of the many goals I’ve set for myself in 2013!

    Nice job using manual settings! I’m drinking more smoothies right now too – in an effort to eat more fruits and veggies.

    I love a good homemade smoothie! Your photography is gorgeous, I really hope to learn more about how to photograph better this coming year.

      Thanks for the kind compliments, Shaina. Look at post from 2010 and you’ll see I’ve come full circle (although learning new stuff daily).
