Berry Smoothie

IMG_3580

Smoothies are a truly easy way to enjoy all the goodness the berries have to offer. You simply need to throw them into a food processor and blend for a while to achieve gorgeous and delicious results. Today, I started off my smoothie season with this amazing red smoothie. Besides the berries I used some red tea that I brewed from hibiscus. The tea gives the smoothie some volume and lightness as blended berries could be quite thick without liquid.

Ingredients:

  • 2 handfuls of strawberries
  • a handful of black currants
  • a handful of raspberries
  • 1 banana
  • a large cup of hibiscus tea
  • 1 tbsp of honey

Just blend it all together in a food processor. I added a spoonful of honey, so it would not be too sour. The banana is crucial for adding some creaminess, but it won’t affect the taste. I got about 0.75 litres of juicy smoothies, enough for 3 people.
