There is nothing better than a glass of freshly prepared smoothie to start your day. Fresh berries, ripe peaches, crisp apples plus a few more yummy ingredients can work wonders as a morning pick me up, especially if you add to it some “magic” ingredients.
The recipe came to be as an experiment, which actually wasn’t my doing. My brother in law (almost) decided to treat us to one of his creations for a change… rummaging through the freezer in search of some frozen pure fruit juice ice cubes, which I’d just run out of evidently… he came across something else hiding in the bottom shelf… a Bountry ice-cream… well it was an unexpected choice but it worked so well. Since then we have replicated the smoothie many times and each time it offers the same wonderful experience.
The smoothie will surprise you with its flavour depth. The Bounty totally takes it to the next level. When you think about it there isn’t really so much chocolate in it but its flavour comes through as a final note. First you get hit with the sharp berries mixed with a hint of coconut sweetness, then you should be able to taste the peaches followed by a distinctly chocolate finish… very complex and very unusual. I would really love to know your thoughts if you decide to try it.
I make it as a smoothie but if you wish you can always reduce the amount of coconut water or even skip it entirely and use it as your morning smoothie bowl… just add some cereal, nuts or top up with more whole fruits.
Anyways how to make this divine breakfast…
- 250g organic blackberries
- 3 large ripe organic peaches
- 1 large organic apple
- Handful of organic raspberries
- Handful of organic blueberries
- 250ml organic chilled low fat blueberry yogurt
- 150ml organic chilled coconut water
- 1 Bounty ice-cream
Wash all fruit. De-stone peaches and pop everything into your blender. I personally do not peel or remove apple core but you can do it if you wish.
Add yogurt, coconut water and blend until semi-smooth.
Pop the lid open and add frozen Bounty ice-cream, shut the lid and blend until smooth.
Serve and enjoy!
