I wanted to post this recipe some weeks ago actually – there were some days, where it was already very cold here in Berlin and a good shot of vitamins was necessary…. well then it got nice and warm again :P
Luckily (or maybe not) the weather is back to “yucky” – cold and rainy. Now you definitely can use some of those extra vitamins I guess.
I like smoothies a lot, but hardly making them at home, cause the cleaing of my mixer was always a pain in the ass (excuse my french) :P Really a lot of work… luckily I have a new one now. Same for the thingy I was using to get orange juice – electric, which is nice, but too many parts to clean. The bad thing with most of this devices – you can’t put them in the dishwasher :P
The bulb citrus reamer I now use – thanks to Magisso – is simple, but also effective and a looooot easier to clean. And it looks really nice. Me like a lot :P
Same for the mug on the pictures – it’s called Cool ID Tumbler and an awesome piece of techonology – a technology that has been used for ages already I learned the other day…
I could explain you how it works, but you can also watch a video – much easier – for me :P
Well – back to the vitamins. The mix of the fruits gives you an extra boost of vitamins – especially the persimmon – guess many people don’t even know about that. It’s a little healthy vitamin bomb :) Well and chia seeds are known as superfoods anyways – so I guess a good mixture if you need the extra boost.
