Blueberry Smoothie Recipe from My Creative 10 Yr Old Sydney

Share Button

The kids have been off school for some time now and believe it or not I’m not going crazy! Things have been rather smooth, we’ve been enjoying our days together and finding fun things to do.  Today Sydney who is 10 spend her day developing a fantastic blueberry smothie recipe and having a photoshoot to share it with you all.

In February I told you all about her love of photography and how she surprised me by making an Orange Peach Smoothie Recipe and snapping her own photos.

When she told me this morning that she’d like to share a smoothie recipe on my blog how could I resist? We had some fresh blueberries and strawberries from a local farm so I gave her the go-ahead to look in the fridge and get creative. In very little time she’d come up with her recipe and was blending away as I watched on and let her do her thing. It was quite the process to watch, each fruit blend was tasted…a thoughtful pause and modifications were made.

Once she had the recipe just the way she liked it best, we headed out to the backyard where she set up the shot. She was brilliant if I do say so myself!

The only corrections I’ve made to these images are rotation, cropping and a bit of light correction. Sydney has a knack for this and even more importantly, it’s something she enjoys!

    I love anything blueberry (except bagels for some strange reason..) but this looks really delicious and refreshing. I’ll give a try this summer! :)

    I was sitting here just scrolling down through my newsfeed when suddenly this splash of pretty purple caught my eye. I kept on scrolling then scrolled back to take another look at the picture. I love blueberries and those smoothies look oh, so very good. The picture is very visually appealing as well. Very nice recipe. Enjoy the fun in the kitchen.

    Taking this recipe to the cottage in NW Ontario in August. The blueberries will be ripe for the picking & although we love pancakes and muffins this sounds a little healthier – thanks!

    Wow Sydney! You did an amazing job! You are such a talented 10 year old….I can hardly wait to see what you create as you grow up! Your recipe looks delicious and your photography is top notch. Does your school have a school newspaper? I can see you being the ‘food contributer’ and making all the kids hungry with your cool creations! I live in Edmonton, but boy do I love the look of things at your house….that pool and those cute dogs, plus you whipping delicious things up in the kitchen! Can your Mom & Dad adopt me? Angie xo
