Big week behind the scenes here at Gimme Some Oven HQ — I bought myself a new camera!!!
And oh my goodness, I absolutely love it.
For any of you fellow photography nerds out there, I’ve been shooting with a Canon 6D for the past five years, which has been great. But I’ve been hearing rave reviews over the past few months from some friends who’ve been using the Canon 5D Mark IV — specifically about its awesomeness with shooting video (hello, new YouTube channel), shooting in low light (hello, depressingly-gray and cloudy Kansas City winter), and ease of use (hello, slick new touchscreen). So after saving up for awhile, I finally decided to take the plunge. And now, I totally feel like that kid at Christmas who doesn’t want to do anything else except play with her new toy. ;)
It’s made photography so much more fun!!! Which is great, since I usually spend a serious amount of quality time with my camera each week.
Anyway, in transitioning things over to the new camera this week, I took the opportunity to go back through the thousands of files still sitting on my old camera memory card. And sure enough, found a few gems that I apparently missed sharing with you over the past few months. So before we move onto new camera photos, I wanted to share with you this oldie but goodie:
This yummy raspberry smoothie.
It’s a super simple one, but I love it. It includes lots and lots of frozen raspberries (or any berries that you’d like), a frozen banana, my favorite creamy protein-packed ingredients (Greek yogurt and almond milk). Then I add in the three (also protein-packed) ingredients that I add to just about any smoothie nowadays — bee pollen, hemp seeds, and chia.
Just blend everything together…
…and within just a few minutes, this creamy, sweet, fruity, and totally delightful smoothie will be yours to enjoy. If you think that it needs to be sweeter (since those raspberries can be tart!), feel free to blend in a little extra honey. But otherwise, hope you enjoy it! :)
