There is some very offensive mint plants growing in my yard. I thought to use them for something, and wanted to make some cool sweet drink for sunny weather.  Also, in my freezer there is some frozen banana, which is a great base for vegan “milk”shakes and sorbets.  I usually freeze the bananas, if for some reason I have forgotten them and they have become completely black. This way they make the best sorbet. This is what I came up with this time:

Mint – Coconut – Pineapple Smoothie

1 frozen, overripe banana

1/2 can of canned pineapple

1 small handful of spearmint leaves

3/4 dl coconut milk

I blended it all with a handheld mixer.

Peaceful Saturday Morning Smoothie

smoothie13 almonds

1 dried apricot

1 apple

½ tsp cinnamon

1 dl red currants, frozen

1 ½ dl soy or oat milk (if you live in the North, make it oat for a better world)

I try to remember to put the almonds and the apricot to soak Friday night. This is very challenging for me, but sometimes I get it done. Saturday morning, I peel and chop the apple, and blend in all the ingredients with a hand held mixer. This smoothie is very thick, but I really like that consistency and usually eat it with a spoon.

Then I put on some chilled music, this time it was Emma Salokoski Ensemble, and enjoy my smoothie to it. This is the best way to celebrate the fact that I didn’t have to wake up at six a.m. like on weekdays!
