    Sounds amazing…. just what I need in sweltering, sticky, rainy/crazy sunny/rainy again Queensland, love the addition of cherries for ziiiing! Also need a Vita Mix, sigh.

    HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY.

    I love wombats best :)

    You know what would’ve made it jazzier? Tequila.

    ALSO – i haven’t been able to find that almond milk!! i’ve tried eeeeveryyyy supermarket in the last few days, and no where seems to stock it! where’d you find it?!

    1. Lizzi

      IGNORE THIS. like an hour after i posted this i found it. it was just sold out :p

    This sounds fantastic, I love rose and berries together, such a fantastic combination. It makes me a tad jealous as I drink my boring banana smoothie this morning.

    It does sound so dreamy. Even the name has a romantic aura to it. Good to hear it’s giving you an awesome mood lift!

  5. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    I love rose flavored desserts. Strawberry and rose sounds perfectly complimentary and somehow I absolutely know what you mean when you call the flavor queen-like.

  6. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Given we’re about 2 days into a predicted 7-days-record-heat-wave-that-may-kill-us-all, this looks pretty perfect right now :) And you found / bought the Sanitarium Almond Milk! Is it any good?

    Also: I’m so sorry about your last few weeks :( Really so very sorry, and I hope pizzazz and jazz and sprinkles come back into your days in large quantities very soon.

    And Happy Australia Day to you too!

    Hope your Australia Day was as nice as yours. Lamb for mains, Raspberry Whip to follow. Very anglo but very nice. We did have hummus to start with though.

    Happy Australia Day Maaaaaaayyyyyyyttttteeeee! :D

    What a lovely lovely smoothies – I can taste the etherealness from here. Truly :)

    One of my craziest ideas came to me in my sleep! :P and David Thorne is GENIUS! I live his snowboard story and The Party one too. In fact I love them all really…

    Your lack of pizazz post Melbourne, and the inevitable anticlimax when holidays end reminded me of this little Philip Larkin piece: Home is so Sad. It’s kind of a downer (sorry), but if you can’t spontaneously share poetry on blog comments, then what is the point of any of it. Well actually, I’m just going to share a link, but you know…

    I’m pretty sure I never knew that almond milk was a thing, but you’ve done a wonderful job selling it here :D

  11. Yasmeen @ Wandering Spice

    Lordy lord are you ever speaking my language with this smoothie. Love the addition of rosewater and equally love the almond milk. A smashing success. Next time you’re in Melbourne let’s get a coffee (that is, in a totally I’m-not-your-internet-stalker, would-just-be-cool kind of way) :)

    Ooooohh rosewater….. *sigh* …… I’ve just been in an Asian Spices shop in downtown Geneva which smelled of sandalwood incense, powdered ginger and rosewater. I didn’t buy any but I might do next time…. I was there for minced ginger and garlic (unheard of in common supermarkets) and curry spices.

    Hope you enjoyed Australia Day Hannah. No kidding, I had a burger for brekky, lots of snags for lunch and two meat pies with sauce for dinner. Just opened the fridge and what the! – no coopers ales and no strawberry rose smoothie. :(
    What will excite me in 2012? Well, I’m looking forward this year to good health and happiness for my family and friends, more world peace and financial stability, better health, nutrition and education for world children, a cure for cancer and … and … and … singing with our favourite heel clicker! I will be very excited if all that happens.

    I am pirating internet in the corner of my house, and it seems to only work properly during the morning hours. So last night I was able to load part of your post, but I couldn’t see the pictures or leave a comment. Sad pirated internet, yarrrrrrrr.

    Love the looks of the smoothie. I had some organic-y friends who never had vanilla around, but they had a bottle of rosewater, and it was neat to see how cookies, etc., would turn out with that flavoring.

    You are queen-like and ethereal (maybe)! I hope your friends have been a lovely net for you lately, to help keep the bad unjazzy thoughts from getting too close. xxoo.

  15. Fatbooo

    I don’t get creative in my dreams. But I do like how you’ve described your smoothie as queenly and ethereal. :)

  16. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    Rose water! How delightful! :D

  17. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    Hurrah, another use for my still-unopened bottle of rosewater! I feel like I’ve gotta gather up a list of stuff to make with it before I actually open it.

    All too often I lie awake in bed at night constructing recipes in my head…it’s kind of a problem.

  18. Kate

    I dropped sprinkles on my kitchen floor a few years ago and I’m positive that I still haven’t picked all of them up. If you moved my stove, I’m sure you would find half a container!

  19. Sarah B @ Bake + Bike

    Ooh happy Australia day to you! I don’t know what a lot of those things are, but I do love platypi and Tim Tams! Heh.

    Mmm strawberries and rosewater….I can totally understand how this would taste ethereal and queen-like :)

  20. Casey @ Insatiably Healthy

    The addition of rosewater definitely classifies this as jazzy. No doubt there
    I think I have my best ideas, recipe related or not, either right before I go to bed or while I’m in the car. I try to write them down or I’ll forget! The “notes” section on teh iPhone has changed my life :)

  21. Alisa

    Could that color be any more beautiful and intoxicating??!!

  22. Cara @ Gourmet Chick

    I love the idea of rosewater in this smoothie. Sounds delicious.

  23. Margaret

    A smoothie that can be eaten with a spoon is definitely my type of smoothie. ;)
    I went to Costco a couple of weeks ago and spotted those dried cherries. I thought “Hannah would approve of these” and popped a bag in my trolley. :)
    I put dates in my smoothies but would not have thought of adding these cherries!

  24. Maureen

    holy cow this smoothie is beautiful!! I want one but I probably have to make it myself. :)

  25. Louise

    Strawberries and rosewater sounds sensational. I’m not too sure about the almond milk. I think I had some recently and found it somewhat disgusting. I’ve been having oat milk on my cereal of late. I’m not sure from your post if things have been good for you or bad, good of course I hope. I do realise what a downer it is coming home from Melbourne. I’m really missing it. I think it’s just over two years since I’ve been! I’m used to going every 6-12 months. It’s just too long. I will remedy it this year.

  26. Ricki

    Happy Australia Day, Hannah! Hope you are having a great day off. This smoothie is just gorgeous, and I love the tart cherries in it! The ice cream-like texture doesn’t hurt, either. :) Thanks for submitting it to WW this week! :D

  27. Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake

    Oh Hannah! You’re killing me with this smoothie…I’m in love with strawberries and anything strawberry flavoured at the moment. My current favourite colour is red and my website is named after strawberries!
    The weather in Melbourne’s been unbearably hot too, can’t understand how they can play tennis in this heat! Not without a smoothie like this surely.

  28. Catherine

    I just remembered I didn’t do anything for Australia Day! Oh no! But tonight am going to an AC/DC concert on the snow tonight. (Help! Italians love cover bands!)

    Maybe I need a smoothie.

  29. Richa@HobbyandMore

    i dont dream much.. unless it is some totally random dream which i usually cannot remember.. but i do daydream and make up some recipes in those day dreams!
    love this smoothie and the rosewater in it!

  30. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    I’m so happy this smoothie made you dazzle :) you deserve to be jazzy and full of pizzaz. I’d love a glass myself – it’s so HOT in melbs. crazy town, I tell you!

    Yay for walking on sunshine!!!

    This sounds perfect for the few actual days of summer that mother nature deemed we were allowed to have before all this rain set in. I often dream recipes, although they tend to be breakfast centred – must be my subconscious saying hurry up and feed me. That said I had a horrific dream the other night where I was on Masterchef and had to make sushi – it did not go well. Pancakes seem a much safer option.

  32. JohannaGGG

    Love that colour – the smoothie sounds perfect for a hot day and I think bright cheery colours also are perfect in summer too

    And in this one, the second photo looks like an alien brain.

    Or a coughed up lung.
