mixed fruit smoothie

The past few weeks I put my new blender to good use. I feel that my body is starting to get used to the new amount of fruit intake, and I like it. When buying fruit, I try to only buy fruit that has been locally produced (within Europe), and that comes with the season, but I do not always ¬†follow. Kiwi’s for example are simply not produced in Europe, and since these are so healthy, I ‘sin’ sometimes and buy them anyway.

This morning I tried something new, and it was really tasty! I added a yakult-like probiotic drink for healthy bowel flora. Instead of ice cubes I use frozen fruit. You can just find them in the frozen section in the supermarket. They are frozen right after harvest, this way they keep all their vitamins and are just as healthy as fresh fruit.

 

Ingredients of my smoothie this morning were: kiwi, apple, goji berries, frozen blueberries, frozen raspberries, frozen mango, and the probiotic drink (and some water). I had a pommegranate too, but last minute I decided not to add it because of the hard seeds, en the hassle to peal the thing.

 

The result: YUMMY!
