Homemade Avocado Smoothie

food, Journal, Lifestyle

What’s the best way to acquire your daily dose of fruits (and vegetables)? Oh yes, through shakes, juices and smoothies! It’s not only time saving but you can get all the vitamins that you need. Besides, shakes, juices and smoothies are a better alternative to sodas these hot summer days.

Today has been also very hot and we find it demotivating to do anything. I tried drinking lots of Cold water but my it didn’t do much of a help. For sure because it keeps flushing out the ions in my body. I drank a glass of cola but that’s it because I don’t want to rely on it and besides it has lots of sugar which is bad for the body. Luckily, I still have a couple of avocados left from yesterday, so I made avocado smoothie with banana and oat milk. I also found a can of condensed milk so I used a very small amount of it to give my smoothie some sweetness in it. I didn’t follow any recipe online, just what my tastebud craves.

Here you go! 🙂

Yields approximately 0,5 liters/ 2 glasses of smoothie.

2 small avocados

1/2 medium banana

2 tbsp condensed milk

1-2 cups of oat milk

2 sachets of raspberry powder (I don’t know the name. Was given to me by my sister who has been to Japan.)

 

The Season

Culture, Journal, Photography

They’re here again to invade our pavements, restaurants and city. No they’re not on war. We are not on war with them. They walk in pairs, groups or solo. Cameras, especially the system ones are a common sight with them. Do not forget the maps and the translation devices too. Some of them know where they are heading and some get lost. Everything that we find mundane in this city, they find it exciting and interesting. Because of their curiosity about history, they fill up the museums, churches and souvenir shops.

Some locals would probably find this season annoying. Perhaps because of the amount of tourists that storm in to Bergen. In terms of the areal size, Bergen is not a big city compared to NY, London, Barcelona and etc. So a cruiseship or two will somewhow make the city center look overpopulated.

If you would ask me how I feel about it, I think it’s great that they want to explore Bergen/Norway. Tourism is also good for the economy. My only concern regarding the cruiseship industry is the pollution that comes from it. I hope that they’ll fix that too.
