Now it´s the perfect time for red currants and our garden gave us a fair share just enough to make a couple of berry pies and smoothies.  This is a smoothie I return to.  It is so fresh, fruity and mild.  Lemon balm in combination with the rest of the ingredients lift this smoothie to another taste level ; )

Serves 1

  • 1 handful of red currants
  • 1 handful of  lemon balm leaves
  • one banana (preferably quite ripe)
  • 2 oranges – squeeze out the juice so it makes 1 cup. You can also add the fruit in pieces directly in your mixer/blender.
  • 1 handfull frozen raspberries
  • 3-4 ice cubes (optional) – if you have a blender that can handle ice

Simply mix and enjoy a simple and tasty smoothie.
