11 Sep :: Jambu Air Smoothie ::
I bought a packet of six jambu merah , munched two and left the balance in the fridge for a little too long.
No, actually I forgotten about it.
One of them turned sour and I had to throw it away. Oops!
So what better way to use up the balance?
Blend away! My SPECIALITY…
Jambu merah is quite juicy on its own and there’s not much of a sweet taste to it.
So I added in some pitted dates to sweeten this smoothie. You can also do without these altogether.
Dates or date sugar (also known as nature’s candy) are healthier sweetener option because they contain nutrients, unlike table sugar, agave, high fructose corn syrup.
I mean if you’re taking sugar, might as well go for the most bang for your buck, right?
Love the innocent pink hue. Feel free to tweak the recipe!
Can’t find dates? Swap with mango or bananas
Allergic to nuts? Omit
Expensive raspberries? Use strawberries instead
