I love to eat fresh fruits for breakfast every day, and when seasonal fruits are not too good (autumn and winter) or I have some fruits that got a little too rippen for a fruit salad I prepare a lot of smoothies. My idea is not to have a "super drink" with a whole week of veggies in it, but rather a tasty and delicious drink for breakfast or snack. My rules for delicious smoothies that keep the taste of each fruit are simple:
- always fresh fruits (I don't use frozen food). At least one very juicy like pineapple, melon, watermelon... The rest depending on the market: strawberries, blueberries, passion fruit, kiwi, nashi, peach, pear...
- 3 or 4 fruit types at max (usually I stick to 3) for better taste of each of the fruit, after more all the tastes are just blended and it's hard to say what is in.
- no bananas, they thicken the smoothie too much.
- only add water if needed, no other complement.
It gives super easy to drink smoothies, very tasty and always different. Sometimes I top it with a few chia seeds.
