Ingredients:

  • 400 g raspberry / elderberry mix
  • 4 dl yoghurt (0,1% fat)
  • 1 dl semi-skimmed milk (may be replaced with skimmed milk)
  • 4 table spoons of mascarpone
  • 1 dl aronia squash
  • 4 table spoons of black elderberry squash
  • 1 vanilla stalk
  • 1 tea spoon of honey (optional)

 

How to make it:

  • Blend / mix frozen or fresh raspberries with the yoghurt, milk, mascarpone, concentrated aronia- and black elderberry squash, and the seeds from the vanilla stalk. This smoothie tastes incredibly fresh and has an invigorating flavor. However, if you want to sweeten it up a little bit, I suggest adding a tea spoon of honey.Tip:For smoothies, it is sometimes best to use frozen berries. This way you will not have to add ice cubes to get it really cold. I also know that aronia squash can be very hard to get hold of, so this can be replaced with for example blueberry squash or newly pressed red grapefruit juice.
