Blueberry Peach Kefir Brazil Nut Borage + + + Smoothie

26 Jun

borage flowersBack from a long — and hot — day at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, it was time for a smoothie. I had four people total to make it for, so volume was as important as taste. I mixed —

  • 2 c frozen peaches (frozen by me last year with citric acid and sugar to sweat them)
  • 1.5 c frozen blueberries
  • 1 orange, juiced
  • 4 Brazil nuts, soaked
  • 1/2 c of kefir, vanilla-flavored
  • 1 c of fruity-flavored tea
  • Some cran-pomegranate juice (bottled sugar) just because I needed more liquid and a little more sweetness
  • Oh, and I added a borage flower (edible) as decoration

Vitamix. Variable, then on high. Served in pretty glasses. Nice. Refreshing. Still thick enough to eat with a spoon.
