When it comes to food blog trends, I like to think I do my best to avoid them. Most of the time, I try to do my own thing, whether it is photographing or eating it. I tend to welcome new foods as much as I embrace the classics, but I’m not necessarily out there searching them out. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I would like to think the way I share food here happens fairly organically.
But the green smoothie, oh, yes, I fell in, hook line and sinker. You know by now I’m a late adopter, but the truth is I make a green smoothie nearly every day! And here’s a Blackberry Green Smoothie that I know you’ll love just as much!
The really funny thing though, is my daughter chimed in when I was photographing this one. She saw my blue stripey straws and gushed, “Ooh, use those mommy!” I was dubious. And I agreed to take a few shots, just for her.
So when I saw stripey straws listed as the first food blog trend that should stop, I cringed. I guess I’m guilty of more food blog trends after all!
Well, the damage has been done. But the good news is this: this Blackberry Green Smoothie is healthy and delicious, stripey straw or not.
