Sweet Berry & Baobab Slushie
1 tbsp Minvita Baobab Superfruit Powder
1 tbsp Minvita Chia Superfood Seeds
1-2 cups frozen berries (raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, redcurrants, blackcurrants, cherries)
2 frozen bananas
1 cup crushed ice
1/2 cup water
If the dull weather and drizzly skies of January are making you feel a little grey, try our Sweet Berry & Baobab Slushie to add a much-needed injection of vitality and vitamins into your body and life. The bright, vibrant shade courtesy of the berries and the thick, cool texture of the frozen fruit will make you feel as if you’re in the midst of summer – not to mention working towards that summer body with all of the added goodness and benefits of our super Baobab Superfruit Powder, which contains naturally high levels of various vitamins and minerals that are essential for maintaining a healthy body and mind.
1. Roughly chop your two frozen bananas into large chunks and place in your blender, along with the water. Pulse until the bananas and water are fully blended
2. Add the frozen berries and Baobab Superfruit Powder, then blend until fully combined. You may need to add a little more water at this stage, but the consistency we’re trying to achieve is much thicker than a regular smoothie – it should be fairly ‘solid’, and not at all runny or watery
3. Pop some crushed ice into the mixture and blend again – we added our Chia Superfood Seeds at this step to keep them ‘whole’, but you can either add them at Step 2 or save them until the end to sprinkle over the top of your smoothie. How’s your consistency looking? If you need a spoon to help scoop it out of the blender as it won’t easily pour into a container by itself, then it’s perfect. Do this step now – tip your blender up and use a spoon to empty the contents into the container of your choice
4. Your slushie should be icy, thick and ultra refreshing – the perfect pick-me-up to the January blues! Enjoy, and do let us know if you create this recipe at home – why not send us a photo on Twitter? We’re also on Facebook and Pinterest if you’d like to check us out!
