Now and again I like to make a nutritious ‘whizz’ of fruit in the afternoon – especially on those days when I fancy something sweet like a cake. In preparation for these occasions, I never waste any ‘almost-over-ripe’ fruit, I cut them up removing skins, stalks, peel, core etc and put them in the freezer. When the mood takes me I gather up my fruits – frozen and fresh and blitz it all up for a delicious smoothie.
This one includes
4 little frozen satsumas
1 frozen banana
About a cup of frozen cherries
2 fresh chopped apples
About half a cup of fresh blueberries
Enough orange juice to make it drinkable
For added zing use lemon zest and juice. For added goodness you can add a tablespoon of flax seeds.
After drinking and probably sharing it with your nearest and dearest, you can sit back and feel very good with yourself. No cake and saving what may have been wasted fruit.
A JOB WELL DONE!
