Summer Breeze

 

 

   
 

This is a real Beach drink, and there's no reason why you cant have one in your very own home! Rich in Vitamins A & C, this Smoothie is great for maintaining healthy skin, and also an excellent immune system booster! You will need:

  • Blender [Need one of these?]
  • 2x Peaches (Ripe is best)
  • 1x Mango
  • Half a Lemon (A whole one CAN be used, but at your own risk of bitterness!)
  • 1x Cup of Natural Mineral Water
  • 3-4 Crushed Ice Cubes

The amount listed should serve one person and allow a little extra for a quick fix later on or if you are just in thirsty for more!

Step 1
First, we want to prepare the Mango. We have to cut it in half, removing the stone in the process. Using a knife and being careful, remove the skin of the Mango to reveal the fleshy surface. Chop into chunks and place in Blender. Repeat this process with the Peaches. Set at a low speed for 20 seconds.

Step 2
During this time, we want to cut a Lemon in half and crush the ice by placing in a bag or kitchen towel, and controlled hits with a Mincing Hammer. Stop the Blender and Squeeze all the Lemon juice into it. A Juice extractor is perfect for this job and minimizes waste - Buy one here. Add the ice and water to the mix. Set at a high speed for 30 seconds.

Step 3
Enjoy this Drink outside in the Sun, or after a sport exercise when you need a refreshing drink.

NOTE: This Juice should be consumed within 1 hour of mixing. However, it CAN be refrigerated for later use if needed.
