Arrgghh so today is my first Vlog.. Judging by how nervous I was making it ..it’s possibly my last. We shall see! I used my camera from my Iphone 4S to make these short videos of me making a berry & banana smoothie. I’ve made this recipe a few times as I always buy fruits such as bananas when they are reduced to clear and dice them and freeze in bags ready to blend. Adding the berries stops it becoming overpowered by the banana flavour and you can’t even taste the carrot or spinach so perfect for little ones who moan about veggies. My children love it.
I often use my phone to take images of my food because sometimes I only get a few seconds to do it.. Children aren’t exactly happy to wait while you stage the perfect shot and set up your proper camera so most of the photos you see on here and all of the photos you see on Instagram are from my phone.
Anyway without further ado here is a short video telling you what is in the smoothie:
Before you watch… Yes I know I say chopped, diced banana.. I meant frozen chopped banana..
The second video shows the end result and I managed to cut off the end of what I was saying which was that you could pop the leftovers into a lolly mould as they make fabulous lollies.
So I have a lot to learn about vlogging BUT I think for a first attempt it wasn’t too bad. Now I just have to learn how to stop cringing every time I hear my own voice on video.. Any tips?
Do you use your camera phone to take videos?
Its worth noting that I haven’t got the most up to date model on my phone, in fact I’ve had it for a few years now and I bought it second hand but it works perfectly well. I love the fact that I can use it to take Instagram shots so they can be heavily filtered if I need them to be .. Most days right now to cover my huge eye bags! I use it to capture funny moments with the girls. Izzy in particular loves the front facing camera to take a selfie of herself with her dolls 😉
I’ve currently got 3,300 photos stored on my phone – wow I think it’s probably time for a clear out!
Both girls enjoying their smoothies..I popped Chloe’s into a cup with a closed top..for my sanity.
They look yummy – what a great idea to freeze reduced fruit! Good luck with the vlogging 🙂

That smoothie sounds lovely, I bet the girls enjoyed it! Loved your vlogs, your voice sounds great to me as I love the Welsh accent. 🙂
Great tip on freezing the reduced fruit. I do use my camera for little bits of video and do a few vines, but I am still self-conscious about it.
