Today I went by the market and got some fresh fruit on my way home. We’ve had a really hot week here in Germany, with temperatures of 38° C (that’s 100° F). Today it started out a little cooler but with the sun out it soon heated up and I was craving a nice, light lunch. Something cool and refreshing and fruity. Cue the Summer in the City smoothie!
Summer in the City smoothie
- 2 ripe bananas
- 2 ripe peaches or nectarines
- 1 cup frozen wild berries (if you have fresh berries add a few ice cubes)
- 1 cup grape or orange juice
Peel the banana, break into pieces and throw it into your blender. Peel the peaches (the skin should come off easily if they’re ripe), cut up and throw in there as well. Add berries (and ice cubes, if you used fresh ones) and fill up with grape juice. Blend on high until everything is smooth. If it’s still too thick, add a little more juice. Enjoy!
It’s so delicious, I drank a whole big glass before I could restrain myself enough to snap a picture! Good thing I made enough for two servings. ;) I still have enough to make a second batch, but I’ll definitely pick up some more fruit to make this. The forecast says it’ll stay this hot for the rest of the week, so I’ll have lots of opportunities to enjoy my Summer in the City smoothie.
