These ones were especially good. They are from a friend’s orchard, and he explained to me that the amazing flavor they had, was not so much related to the fact that they are organic, but to the way he picks them up, little by little, when they are truly ripe and at their best.
On the other hand, those rocks that we buy at the supermarkets, are collected all at once, and then they are let to ripen in the fridges.
That, not only makes a BIG difference in taste, but also in the vitamins and nutrients.
Anyway, we know that buying eco is the best thing, but if we have to choose, many times, it is almost more important to try to find local products from small productions, who can afford the “luxury” of harvesting when the product is at it’s best, above “eco” certifications.
Ok, to the point, this smoothie is soooo good, that you’ll forget it’s super healthy too! If you are into juicing, perhaps you’ll like this other one I made recently.
Do you make homemade juices? If you do, could you share with us the recipes? Are you, like me, a little bit juice-obsessed lately?
- 1 mango, peeled and diced
- 1 plain yogurt
- 4 teaspoons of chia seeds
- * Coconut water . I use about 125ml, but experiment until you get the consistency you like best. If you do not have coconut water you can just use water.
- Optional: ½ peeled lemon
- Optional: a piece of peeled ginger, about 1 cm thick.
- Blend all ingredients until well mixed and no lumps. Taste and adjust lemon and water to your liking.
- Drink it right away.
