Hi there, I’m Bret. Nice to meet you.
This blog is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while now, and I’ve finally got around to it. I’ve been making smoothies for well over ten years – off and on. Over that time I’ve made 1000s and I feel that I’ve maybe learnt a thing or two.
I know there’s already 100s of smoothie sites. However, most of these seem to be simple recipe sites with lots of ads. I want to do a site covering more than just recipes. I also want to cover things like health, techniques, reviews and ingredients.
My aim is to get as many people enthusiastic about blending as possible. I believe that smoothies are one of the best, and probably the easiest, ways to receive the high quality nutrition that fruit and vegetables can give us. Before smoothies I ate very few vegies – now I’m eating so much more – and loving it. If I can get a few people doing the same – I’ll be more than happy, and the website will be a worthwhile venture!
At some point in the future there will be some ads – to pay the bills associated with the site. However, I’m going to try and keep those to an absolute minimum and only for things I truly believe in.
If you would like to contribute a recipe or an article – please let me know via the Feedback page.
With love, Bret
PS I’m based in London, England – for those of you that wanted to know.
