DIY smoothie

We came upon this ingenious idea at the James St Food and Wine Trail on the weekend. Choose your fruit from the delicious selection.



Then hop on the bike and pedal your way to a fruit smoothie.


Perhaps every kitchen could have one and you could pedal up a cake mix or pizza dough, think of the savings! You would save on power and get some exercise at the same time.

There were lots of other great things at the food festival. We really are very lucky in Brisbane to have such a great range of delicious things to eat…take a look.


It was a gorgeous day to be out enjoying the winter sunshine.



James St, Fortitude Valley is a great place to shop.


  1. The fruits are fresh and attractive, I would love some smoothie too.

    • The fruit looked great and the smoothies delicious.

  2. And should it be mentioned gleefully to all northern hemisphere habitants that it is winter in Oz at present! The day was glorious!

    • Brisbane winters are wonderful. I find summer a bit hot here, but I love winter.

  3. Queensland ingenuity! And what a gorgeous day, you lucky things!

    • We have great winters, I come home for them.

  4. What a great idea! Healthy drink and using calories too!! :o)

    • It was a lot of fun.

  5. Very ingenuous!

    • …and a lot of fun.

  6. Gotta love the smoothie bike!

    • I think we all need one.

  7. hahaha bicycle powered smoothies! Love it! 🙂

    • I can see you doing this.

  8. what an amazing idea, saving energy and working out at the same time, while creating a scrumptious smoothie.

    • It sounds like a good idea to me.

  9. What a great idea with the pedal-power!

  10. Riding a bike to the cafe has much the same effect, though it lacks originality and charm!

    • You are in the right place for riding a bike to the cafe.

  11. What a fun way to a healthy smoothie….and it looks like a great market.
