A Quickie.. Go Get 'Em Smoothie

"Pooh," said Piglet nervously.
"Yes?" said one of the chairs.
"Where are we?"
"I'm not quite sure," said the chair.
"Are we - are we in Owl's House?"
"I think so, because we were just going to have tea, and we hadn't had it."
"Oh!" said Piglet. "Well, did Owl always have a letter-box in his ceiling?"
"Has he?"
"Yes, look."
"I can't," said Pooh. "I'm face downwards under something, and that, Piglet, is a very bad position for looking at ceilings."
It is a blustery day in a topsy-turvy world. In order to give you energy to right yourself up and face the world, I give you Nigella Lawson's Go Get 'Em Smoothie. A delicious little boost to help you face what the day brings.
