Refreshing Healthy Summer Drink

Colorful, sweet, yummy, fun... what I am a talking about? Of course SMOOTHIES!

Smoothies have been really popular for quite some while now and I have been making them non stop. They are just so fun to make, since you have a lot of freedom creating them. You can literally use ANYTHING, whether it's fruit, seeds, yoghurt or vegetables. There's only one rule, be creative and don't be afraid to experiment and try new things. Express your adventurous side through culinary art. Drinking smoothies have many health benefits, such as improved digestion and stronger immune system. But most importantly it is a simple, fast, delicious and a guilt-free meal. Also during the unbearable summer heat it is a fantastic way to refresh and hydrate your body! So I came up with my favorite green smoothie creation: the Kiwi-Apple-Lassi!


 To prepare this divine drink you will need: 


Firstly 2-3 tablespoons of greek yoghurt and 1 tablespoon of chia seeds,


3 kiwis (or more or less as you prefer),


slice them up and throw them into the mixer along with the yoghurt and the seeds,


next, take an apple,


slice it up and add it to the rest of the ingredients along with your additional flavoring 
(a splash of lemon juice or honey).


Now it's time that the mixer springs into action, mix until it's all combined and creamy.


Done! The scrumptious drink can be served. Apple adds some sweetness and kiwi dominates the taste of this beverage, which is heavenly. You just NEED to try this at home. I served it in martini glasses, because I love the elegant and chic look of them. Lastly I decorated with a slice of kiwi and cut a straw in half to match the glass. And it's ready to be savored! Enjoy!



I hope you find some inspiration to recreate this or something similar,
what is your favorite beverage to drink on a hot summer day?
