*Berry, Pear and Almond Smoothie*
Serves 1
Smoothies are great, so why not try this one at home.  From Kitchen Heist.

150g pear, seeds removed (1 pear)
110g fresh strawberries, hulled (6)
50g fresh raspberries (small handful)
25g honey (generous TBS)
225g almond yogurt (8 ounces, or one cup)
Blend all ingredients together into a smoothie. Couldn't be any easier.  Optionally you can serve this in a bowl and garnish with varying quantities of chia seeds, desiccated coconut, berries and toasted rolled oats.  If one of them is not to your taste, feel free to skip it.

Note and Tips:
- Great served as a drink or in a bowl to be eaten with a spoon.
- If you like to think it down add almond milk, regular milk or even a touch of water will work.

- Chopping board
- Knife
- Hand blender/liquidizer

Their lessons are great, whether you are new to the kitchen or a foodie who simply wants to improve your cookery skills. They take into consideration that everyone has favourite ingredients, dishes and cuisines as well as varying cooking skills, therefore each lesson is customized to suit the individual. You can choose from starters, main courses, desserts, bread and snacks.

Lessons can focus on quick and easy to prepare family meals or fancy dinner party dishes. It is completely up to the individual.  The classes are also great for couples, so if you like cooking with your partner,  or even with a friend, you are welcome to invite them to join the class. It is an amazing value for two at the same price.

To find out more about their classes, and other options check out their website at Kitchen Heist.
