We have Innocent fruit drinks in the UK which I love - they're all fruit and absolutely nothing else. They are also really expensive, so I like to make my own versions. They're really simple and really cheap to make in the summer (more so if you grow your own fruit!). This is my fave recipe...
- 1 (290 g) can raspberries (drained. Or a punnet of fresh ones works even better!)
- 1 large blood orange (although I'm sure it works with other types too)
- 2 tablespoons orange juice (or water if you prefer)
- Slice both ends off the orange and carefully remove the skin and as much of the white as you can. I find it easiest to just use a sharp knife and cut away as much as possible.
- Chop in quarters and throw in a blender.
- Wash raspberries and add to the blender.
- Add 2tbsps orange juice (water works too but it needs something to thin it out a bit) and blend until smooth.
Beautiful, delicious raw smoothie!!! Like another reviewer I used a navel orange and fresh raspberries of course! I cut the orange so I included no pith whatsoever and used the flesh remaining on the skin to squeeze for the juice. Additionally because of my sad blender I added a bit of water. I'd like to try a blood orange in this next time insha Allah (God willing).
No blood oranges available for me around here, so I had to do with a large, home-grown navel orange (outstanding taste!)! Fresh raspberries, no problem! I did put the orange & raspberries in the freezer, JUST TO GET THEM REALLY COLD, BUT NOT TO FREEZE! Made for a very tasty smoothie, & one I'd be happy to make again & again! Thanks for the recipe!
