This one is a bit special, a real corker in fact.
Nectarines, clementines, soft dried apricot, fizzy white schloer and an extra boost courtesy of some baobab powder. A lush smoothie, so full of flavour, finishing with a sherbet-like taste.
As if all the fruit isn't enough, I do like to give my smoothies an extra slug of nutrients. Sometimes I add spinach, usually I add some powdered quinoa and recently I have started to add some baobab powder.
This superfruit from the African Baobab tree contains six times more vitamin C than oranges, twice as many antioxidants than goji berries, six times more potassium than bananas and more iron than spinach and red meat!
Minvita Baobab Superfruit Powder , is a pale, fine powder that can be added to home baking, cereals, juice, yoghurt and smoothies.
Nectarine and Apricot Sherbet
A fruity smoothie with a sherbet finish.
- 2 nectarines
- 2 clementines
- 1 handful soft dried apricot pieces
- 150ml white grape shloer (fizzy grape juice, non-alcoholic)
- 1 tsp baobab powder
1. Take the stone out of the nectarines and slice.2. Peel the clementines and divide into quarters.3. I have a powerful vitamix blender, but if you don't, you may want to soak the apricots, unless they are the really soft ones, in a little apple or orange juice before you add them to your blender.4. Add all the ingredients to your blender and whizz. You may add ice if you like.5. Enjoy. Slurp!
Yield: Serves 3-4
I am submitting my Nectarine and Apricot Sherbet Smoothie to this month's Tea Time Treats.
Tea Time Treats is hosted alternately by Karen over at Lavender and Lovage and Kate over at What Kate Baked. Karen is hosting this month and the topic this month is citrus.
I do hope they accept my entry. Entries are usually cakes and jams, but I think this smoothie would go down a treat at tea time with a scone spread generously with butter and jam.
Disclosure: Minvita sent me some Baobab Powder to try and I was sent a vitamix to review.. I was not required to write a positive review and any opinions expressed are my own.
