Smooth Operator for Fathers Day

Hi everyone, well another hectic week at Ballyknocken Cookery School but I am going to take some time out here to talk Father’s Day and share a fabulous recipe for this extra special weekend.  I don’t know about you but what better than to show our Dad’s we are thinking of them than preparing a tasty drink packed full of goodness and flavor especially designed to boost energy and well-being.

The recipe I am delighted to share this week is so simple and perfect for the kids to pitch in and prepare for those lovely deserving Dads. My gorgeous recipe for Melon, Mango and Lemongrass Smoothie’s will be just ideal for Dad sitting out enjoying the sunshine, relaxing while the whole family wait on him hand and foot !( OR like me you might get him involved and make it a real family occasion )

How delicious does this look?

Melon Mango and Lemongrass Smoothie (2)

Melon, Mango and Lemongrass Smoothie  is just sunshine in a glass. You could try it without the melon and add strawberries instead, but I don’t think I would change it at all. It’s lovely after a long hike with the family into the countryside, as the lemongrass is very energising.

Serves 4

2 mangos, peeled and roughly diced

1 cantaloupe melon, peeled and diced

1 lemongrass stalk, roughly chopped

1 tbsp honey (optional)

ice, to serve

1 Place the mangos, melon and lemongrass in a blender or

smoothie maker and process until smooth. Check for sweetness

and add the honey to taste. Pour into tall glasses with ice.

I wish you all the best for the weekend and Happy Father’s Day
