Smoothie with plums and raspberries

It is so easy to have health and quick breakfast with a green smoothie. My little boy knows it too very well – every morning (and several times during a day) he stands by the counter and yells “Mu – mu”. He doesn’t speak much yet but this word can word can mean only two things – a cow or a smoothie. And considering where he is standing I would put my money on the last one. So today we were out of our usual ingredients – fresh spinach (we had some but it was soggy) and dates but we replaced them with frozen spinach cubes and dried plums, which I have never used in a smoothie before. But it was so yummmmy! So naturally I had to post it!

  • 2 big bananas
  • 1 big orange
  • 2 cubes of frozen spinach
  • 1/2 cup of raspberries (or blueberries or sea-buckthorn or mixed berries)
  • 1 cup of water
  • 3 dried black plums (or dates)
  • 1 Tbsp of flaxseeds (for good fats)

Nutribullet is perfectly able to process it all into nice smoothie but if your blender is not so powerful I would recommend soaking plums (or dates), grinding flax and using fresh orange juice instead of water (and leaving orange out). I’m not a big fan of lumps in my smoothie.

And I can not NOT mention it. It is my favorite 1. December ever (ok, right after the one I got ice skates from elves – but it was 25 years ago). I got a package from my friend who paints porcelain and WOOOOOOW! I can not wait to make great food to show of these dishes. But for a sneak peak:
