NYC Freegan Meetup Message Board › Mulberry banana smoothie recipe
New York, NY
Late May through July is mulberry season. Mulberries are rich in a highly publicized antioxidant, Resveratol, which is believed to reduce the signs of aging and assist in weight loss. If you are lucky enough to have a mulberry tree growing near you, harvest your mulberries for use in this delicious mulberry banana smoothie!
Things You'll Need:
1 cup chilled juice (I like apple or mango)
1 cup yogurt any flavor (I like strawberry)
1.5 cups mulberries
Place a tarp, blanket or cloth under a mulberry tree to collect the mulberries. Secure the tarp with rocks. Shake the limbs with a limb hook or rake, or allow the tarp to rest there for approximately 24 hours. During this time mulberries will fall to the ground. Retrieve any fallen mulberries within a day or two to prevent other debris from collecting on the tarp. When working with the mulberries try not to pick them up individually, this will smash them and leave your fingers purple.
Rinse the mulberries.
Place the mulberries, bananas, yogurt and juice in a blender. Blend on high until well mixed.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
