Kiwi Cafe (vegan cafe and social hub) became a favourite haunt of ours during our time in Tbilisi. One of our favourites on the menu were their smoothies made from frozen fruits with soya milk and banana. The great thing about these refreshing drinks is that the technique lends itself to preserving fruits that are becoming over ripe. It’s an easy home trick that reduces food waste and results in delicious smoothies! Every time you have fruit in your fruitbowl that is turning or a fruit salad that is just too big after the weekend’s barbecuing session. Just chop up the fruit (remove seeds/stones) and get it in the freezer.
When you are in the mood, out the freezer they come and into blender alongside about 150ml of milk/soya milk/almond milk/yoghurt and half a banana (the banana can come out the freezer too but not necessarily – ever heard of banana ice cream?!). Whizz everything up in a blender, add a sprig of mint and ta-da tasty smoothie and less food waste!
If you’re feeling adventurous why not give it a go with your veggies too? Tomatoes? Spinach? Kale? Anything goes![powr-image-slider label=”Enter a Label”]
