Today, neighbour gave us a few coconuts so i decided to try using them in the smoothie.But,i skip the kefir cos i didn't know if it would go well with coconut.
These are the ingredients which i used today.It was quite nice as the mango was sweet and coconut too.This combination is on the sweeter side.Overall,quite happy with this first attempt using coconut.

Oh my goodness!Love today's smoothie the most.Sometimes the combination makes it too creamy or too watery but today...it was just nice with a little sorbet consistency.
Want to know how i made it?
2 frozen sweet mangoes (i got mine fresh from the garden)
1/2 cup of kefir or yogurt
1/4 cup of fresh milk
3 cups of ice
Honey (i didn't have to use any cos the mangoes and oranges were sweet enough)
1. Peel and cut all the fruits into cubes.
2. Freeze the mangoes for a few hours (mine was in the freezer with fast freezing mode for 6 hours).
3. Put everything into the blender and blend until it reaches a smooth consistency.
4. Serve immediately.

This is another smoothie recipe which i came up with,sort of.I searched online to see what fruits will go best with celery and tomatoes since i wanted to try how those will taste in smoothie.I found a few and this is what i came up with after making a few changes to the original recipe.Sorry for not taking any photos this time.
- 1 tomato (I didn't put many cos i only had the regular tomato and i don't think they are sweet)
- 1/3 celery (Even with this much,the smell is still a little strong.So if you don't really like celery,can reduce this)
- 2 apples
- 1 orange (Could have added another one to lessen the smell of celery)
- 1/3 lemon (I think that it was enough,but my papa said a little more would be nicer)
- honey (If it is not sweet enough)

|This is the amount of kefir i usually use for 5 servings.|
|These are the fruits for today..Papaya,bananas,pineapple,apples and lemon.|
|And this is the result...The papaya and bananas made the smoothie creamy unlike the usually juice like consistency.|
|My glass of smoothie to help my round,round stomach digest faster.|

Yesterday,mummy bought honeydew when we went back to visit my grandmother,so i decided to use that as the main ingredient for today's smoothie.This is what i came up with...Honeydew,bananas,apple and lemon with kefir.It tasted a little bland as the honeydew was not really sweet and i only added one apple.Will have to give it another try with a sweeter honeydew.
Oh...another thing i forgot to mention about blending the fruits.You have to place the kefir (anything liquid) or the 'softer' fruits at the bottom.Certain blenders are not that powerful and if you start off with 'harder' fruits,it might cos the blender to get stuck.

Recently,my family is into making kefir.My uncle gave us the kefir grains to start but it wasn't a 'hit' with everyone in the family.Maybe because of the way we made it,it tasted too sour and has a smell to it.But,it is supposed to have more beneficial bacteria compared to yogurt.So,we gave it a few more tries and now,it is a whole new story.Almost every night,after dinner,no matter how full we are,each of us will have a cup of it blended with ice and fruits.As i am the one in-charged of making it,i will try different recipes with whatever fruits i have at home.So,from now on,i think i will update my blog with those recipes.It is a way for me to remember what i have done and what i can do too.
How do i make the smoothie?
Start off with the fruits that are needed.Peel off the skin and remove the seeds.After that,cut them all into small pieces (so that it is faster to blend and there won't be any chunks of fruit in the smoothies) and put them all in the blender.You can opt to juice and then blend it with the others but i like to blend.The fibers from the fruits are good for you so why waste it,right?Once done with the fruits,the kefir is added and then top with some ice cubes.Blend them until it reaches a smooth consistency.It can be served just like that or with some extra ice cubes or with a few cubes of the fruits that is blended.That simple yet it tastes delicious especially on a hot night.
The smoothie i made tonight is kefir with bananas,apples,pineapple and lemon.
