No animals were harmed in the creation of this idiotically vibrant pink smoothie that suffuses your insides with a similar blazing glow of health and wellness, not least because this delicious lambent drink is made in mere moments and serves as a fantastic post-workout snack or a cool supplement with any meal.
The ingredients can be easily substituted with what you have on hand and what kind of flavour profile you need in a particular smoothie. I gravitate towards resplendent reds and thusly red pitaya for the colour and nutrition boost along with bananas, strawberries, cashew nuts and soy milk.
There’s just the one step to it that is blending all the ingredients.
strawberries in with pitaya or dragonfruit as we call it and I have frozen strawberries here.
in with cashew nuts
banana and soy milk,
a couple of pulses followed by a long whizz and there we have it. Luminous and bloody red.
(I have on previous occasions used boiled beetroot instead of pitaya with similar results.)
Your daily nutrition boost with fruits and fixings.
Red Pitaya: 200g
Banana: 200g (2 small or 1 big)
Cashew nuts: 50g
Soy milk: 100mls
Chop the fruits into smaller portions for even blending and blend along with cashew nuts and soy milk until smooth.
Feel free to add sweetener or a squirt of lemon to enhance the sweetness and tang.
