I LOVE summer fruits! They are here and gone all too soon. Normally I eat them as they are, all soft and ripe and oozing with juice, or at most, chopped into a summer fruit salad with coconut yogurt and cinnamon. Today, however, I had an under-ripe nectarine, an over-ripe plum and a small galia melon that was on its way to becoming alcoholic!
Into the blender they went.
(This is a smoothie you can drink, no cutlery needed this time!)
(All organic, vegan and gluten-free)
Soak a heaped Tbsp of Buckwheat Flakes in the blender
1 Small Glass Chi Coconut Water – unsweetened –
while you get the other items ready.
1/2 Small Ripe Galia Melon, deseeded and flesh chopped
(Squeeze the juice from the skin into the blender – waste not, want not!)
1 Nectarine, pitted and chopped
1 Plum, pitted and chopped
Small handful of Cashew Nut Pieces
(Cashew nuts contain magnesium which helps you relax and lifts your mood)
Heaped Tbsp CoYo Plain Coconut Yogurt
Blend and serve.
You could try adding a pinch of Cinnamon or Ground Ginger, if liked.
