Now that we’re well into the summer, I’m really enjoying the juicy ripe berries that comes with the British sunshine! However, you may have also experienced a little mushiness with all this ripe fruit if you’re buying it from longer production chains, so try sticking to farm shops or farmers’ markets where possible. And if not – pop all your mushy fruit in the freezer, and make delicious smoothies and fruit ice creams!
That’s pretty much where the idea for this summer berries smoothie came from. I love having a stock of frozen fruit in the freezer, and I’d needed more space for the newer berries so have found this delicious drink a great way to enjoy frozen mushy fruit – especially strawberries, as they don’t thaw very well at all.
I’m also very happy to say that two of the main ingredients in this smoothie – MyProtein’s pure almond butter, and organic coconut water – are part of my big plant-based giveaway to celebrate Curiously Conscious’ first birthday! You can enter here now (if it’s before 30th July 2015 of course!)
