Fruit Smoothies!

Recently my workmates gave me a hand-held blender for my birthday (a month late – but it’s the thought that counts!). Last night I used it for the first time to make the following stunningly delicious concoction:


2 large extremely ripe persimmons

1 orange

1 large apple

1 small pomegranite

mint (fresh or dried)

a swirl of honey


1) Skin and seed persimmons

2) Peel orange, cut into cubes

3) Core apple, cut into cubes

4) Skin pomegranite and extract the seeds

5) Place all the fruit into the mixing bowl

6) Add mint and honey to taste

7) Blend until very smooth

8) Add water and blend until it the smoothie is of correct consistency

9) Sieve the pomegranite seeds

10) Pour into glass and ENJOY!

Apricots, peaches, bananas, strawberries other berries, pineapple, mangos and other fruits can also be used in addition or instead of the above fruits.
