The best thing about smoothies, it doesn't fall under any traditional recipe bracket without much change.That's what makes it so refreshing to have a glass of smoothie with varied combinations. I find it exciting to play around with various flavour and texture combinations depending upon what is available.
My personal favourite are pears. The light texture and mild flavour offers such a lovely base for the smoothie. Perfectly ripe conference pears with tart apples and luxuriously sweet dates is just so heavenly.
There is so much of emphasis of health that I was a bit psyched out to add a few value added ingredients. My recent addictions are Moringa powder and sesame seeds. Moringa as we all know is considered as 'Super food'. It has a woody flavour which needs a bit of getting to which compensates well for its health benefits.
Easy recipe with full of delicious ingredients, it makes life easier especially during the busy weekday mornings. This is a kid friendly recipe as well where you can add 'hidden ingredients' taking out the 'fussy eating tantrums & stress' routine.
1 ripe pear
1 small red apple
3-4 seedless dates [soaked in warm water for 1/2 hour]
1 cup of soy milk
1 teaspoon of moringa powder
1/2 teaspoon of white sesame seeds.
Peel the pear and chop into pieces. Whizz together with the chopped apples, soy milk and dates into a smooth liquid. Transfer to serving glass. Sprinkle the Moringa powder and the white sesame seeds. Serve chilled
This smoothie can be altered according to your taste. Add a handful of baby spinach, kale, blueberries, raspberries or add dried fruit like apricots, peaches, mango or even goji berries.
Happy cooking , happy eating ..
