Something-different-Sundays: Purple Monster

After loving the Green Monster smoothie, I was planning to re-create one today. Unfortunately, we had no spinach and I didn't realise this until I'd already started assembling my blender/soy milk/chopped banana. Not wanting the lack of spinach to prevent me from making something yummy and healthy, I created this Purple Monster:

I used:
one small banana
150 ml Alpro Light soy milk
1 stick of celery
2 inch piece of chopped cucumber
1 handful of frozen black forest berries
a sprinkle of cinammon on top

It tasted really good, sweet but also refreshing. I'll definitely be giving this another go and am feeling really inspired by Laura's blog "Keeping Slim and Getting Stylish" - her meals always look so delicious and healthy and the recipies seem easy for even a complete kitchen novice like myself.

What healthy treats have you been enjoying lately?
