My new favourite summer smoothie, this gorgeous Pink Summer Smoothie is all I’m drinking these days!
Already one week of holidays gone. This year I’m again enjoying the wonderful island of Menorca, in Balearic Islands (Spain).
It is just one hour flight from Barcelona, which make it very handy for us, but the truth is that we love it here. It’s so beautiful, I could literally spend the whole day hypnotized by the incredible blue colour of the sea water.
This year I’m finding it specially humid and sticky. It’s that kind of thick air that takes your breath away as soon as you walk out the door. Luckily for us a bit of wind blows everyday what it’s kind of relieve. For these heavy days I find that hydration is the key, and I’m not talking just about water. More than ever, natural iced teas, chilled fruits and freeze smoothies save our days!
Smoothies are great because they comfort and refresh you. Because all the fruit is blended, you are still eating all the fibre of the fruit (not like in juice where the fibre is removed). Fibre helps to promote gut function and regulate blood sugars, promoting satiety (you feel full for longer). Smoothies are also an easy way to pack nutrients for fussy eaters.
From all of the ones we have tried until now, this Pink Summer Smoothie is my favourite! So fresh and light. It is made with banana, raspberries and of course, watermelon🍉! Not much to say about this delicious smoothie, except that is full of goodness for all our senses:
Texture– super cold
Eye– vibrant pink colour
Sound– love the little ‘cling’ sound from the mini iced cubes
Taste– deliciously sweet
