Passionate Strawberry Smoothie

Passionate & Exotic Strawberry Smoothie

Winter blues call for some passion. . .and we've got a nutrition packed, flavour bursting, all-season smoothie for you!

Best of all is that is combines both local & fair-trade ingredients. . . so you can enjoy this with Wholly Canadian goodness {smile}

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 quart (4 cups) frozen/fresh local berries. . . the frozen berries makes this an all-season drink.
  • 1/2 cup fair-trade exotic dried fruit (dragon fruit, golden berry, and coconut)
    • I used Level Ground Trading exotic dried fruit purchased at Ten Thousand Villages
  • local raw honey  to taste. . . .or for a vegan alternative use fair-trade sugar
    • I used John Russell honey
  • enough water to blend the frozen berries

 

Blend. Makes about 4-5 cups.

 Topped with a slice of dried dragon fruit and dried coconut

 

Enjoy.  The exotic flavours will burst!

 

Nutritionally this drink is a winner! The vitamin C of the fruit, and the mineral content & enzymes of both the dried fruit and raw honey make this "virgin margarita" a really great go-to-drink!

And the simplicity of making it, makes it taste all the better {grin}
