4 super berries smoothie


I had a craving for berries, that's why I had to make this extremely fresh and delicious smoothie on  this dark and rainy evening. Wintertime in Finland is so depressing that you wouldn't survive without this kind of refreshing and healthy as well as good tasting berrybombs. It's a good way to treat yourself, as we know that berries contain a lot of important vitamins, flavonoids, anioxidants and fibre. I used the berries that we had collected in summer by ourselves. This is a very quickly and easily done smoothie, and a quickly disappearing too- it's so good. 

Ingredients:
2 dl frozen redcurrants
2 dl frozen blackcurrants
2 dl frozen blueberries
2 dl frozen strawberries
2 ripe bananas cut into smaller pieces
some hot water, it helps in mashing the frozen berries
some orange or apple juice

1. Put the berries and cut bananas in a big bowl, pour some hot water (not too much) over and smash with a handmixer. You can also use a blender if you want to. 
2. When nicely mashed, pour some orange or apple juice (about 1/2-1 dl, depending on how thick the smoothie is), let stay for a while in the room tempeature so that it sets nicely and isnt that frozen anymore. 
3. Serve from a glass and decorate with frozen berries. ENJOY!
