Welcome to the Hopscotch the Globe Country in a Smoothie video series. In this video series, Siya and I teach you how to travel to your favourite country without leaving your own kitchen. In other words, we teach you how to turn the flavours of a country into a smoothie!
In the above video, we take the flavours of the Greek Islands and turn them into a Greek themed smoothie. So, grab your blender and ingredients and let’s travel to Greece. Passport…not required!
What you’ll need:
- 1 cup of plain Greek yogurt
- 1 cup of milk of your choice (I used homemade almond milk)
- 1 hand full of fresh figs
- 3 tablespoons of honey
- 1/3 cup of blended almonds
- 1 hand full of fresh grapes
- 2-3 grapes for garnish
- 1 toothpick
- 1 fancy glass
- A Magic Bullet or blender of choice
Take your magic bullet and mix in the yogurt, milk, figs, honey, blended almonds and grapes for 20 seconds or until blended into smooth consistency. Take your 2-3 garnish grapes and skewer them until your toothpick. Pour your smoothie mix into a glass of your choice. Add your garnish to the side of your glass, close your eyes and take a sip. Welcome to Greece!
Note: It’s important to make sure your almonds are blended separately into a powder before adding them to the smoothie
