Vegan MoFo 2014: The Not So Smooth Moves

What do you get when you mix delicate phalanges with a blender? I can tell you the result of this gruesome little equation is a lot of blood, a little pain and infinite embarrassment…

Today my parents were visiting me from up North. We literally could not have wished for better weather it was absolutely perfect. Sunny but with a light breeze, mmm. We did the classic Bristol tour which included Ashton Court to see the deer, the suspension bridge, Clifton Village for coffee and cake (mine was a soy latte and vegan lemon cake – no photo I ate it way too quickly for that :p), Brandon Hill and Cabot Tower. They enjoyed seeing the sights, well lets face it, who wouldn’t?! Bristol is so beautiful I absolutely love showing people around. My folks were due to leave around 5pm and as soon as they left I was hurrying to make some Mango ‘Nicecream’ to share with you guys as I was hoping to get my long run in before dark.

Want to know what’s not a good idea? Dislodging frozen mango from your blender with your finger. Nope, so not smart at all. I totally made this absolute rookie error whilst accidentally pressing the on button for my blender. I did not know so much blood could come from one finger. Wow. I was pretty darn embarrased so I sheepishly called to my housemate, ‘Brett… I think I just blended my finger.’ He was a legend – thanks dude. Lifesaver. He sorted me out, called my parents who made a swift turnaround to come and save their baby, thanks ma and pa.

Hilarity ensued as we arrived at A+E. Me and mum accidentally walked into the childrens hospital. We got in the lift and it told us to, ‘hold onto your trousers we’re going up!’ Upon finding the big girls A+E department the lady asked why I was visiting so I held up my mangled finger, swallowed my pride and told her I had blended my finger. Her response? ‘How have you done that?’ At which my mum laughs and said, ‘in a blender…’

I was a brave little soldier. I didn’t cry – I laughed. At myself and just because. In situations when most people would cry I generally laugh, I am not sure why I guess it is just my coping mechanism. The lovely doctor was awesome, she gave my wound a very thorough wash which was to be honest the worst part of the whole ordeal. She said I’d been lucky that I had missed all of my tendons. She patched me up with a few steristrips and a big bandage, offered me some codeine (uh, yes purlease) and sent me on my way.

Just because I am so dedicated to you guys, I finished my mango ice cream when my parents brought me home! So, without further ado, here is the recipe..

Ingredients;

  • Frozen Mango
  • Optional Grated Chocolate

Directions;

Blend the frozen mango until delightfully smooth. Top with grated chocolate if your heart so desires. Be very cautious with lovely fingers and blending machines, they really don’t make a good match.

My mango nicecream. So yum. Oh, the things I do for you guys…DSC_0676My new accessory. This is also my ‘mmmh yeah I’ll have some codeine’ face.

So I know I promised to tell you a story about my parents tonight but that shall have to wait until tomorrow. I know the suspense must be killing you 😉 This girl is codeined up to her eyeballs and needs to watch a silly film and drink copious amounts of hot chocolate.

I really hope you guys have had a beautiful weekend.

Love Olivia ♥
