My latest smoothie concoction is this Berry Custard Shake.
Isn't it pretty?
This luxurious concoction is full of strawberries, raspberries, custard, milk, flax seeds and cherry concentrate.
The cherry concentrate is from CherryActive and I have been adding it to a lot of our smoothies. It's lovely stuff and you only need a splash for a fresh cherry taste. Great when you think how short cherry season is and how expensive they are. Here is some blurb about it:
100% concentrated Montmorency cherry juice with no added preservatives. The gorgeous taste of Montmorency cherries! Each 210ml bottle typically made from the concentrated juice of over 650 Montmorency cherries. A 210ml bottle makes two litres of diluted juice (mix 30ml concentrate into half a pint of fresh water). Alternatively, add to natural yoghurt, smoothies or as a mixer.
