Four Seasons - Summer

Nope, I didn't use the apple!

Summer is here (not officially, though) and boy, can we feel it! After the heat wave that scorched most of the country, I thought it was but appropriate to quench our thirst with a smoothie. 

The drink is called Four Seasons (Summer) - based on the fruits that are abundant at that time of the year. I am thinking that depending on which part of the world you are in, the fruits you will use for this recipe would vary. I have tried this shake with different kinds of fruits (always 4 types!) and one thing I can say is DON'T SKIP THE BANANA! I have been making this shake whole year round and the one fruit constant is the banana. And it is always wonderful!

What you need: 

1 banana, coined
5 pieces of strawberries, hulled and sliced
1 ripe honey mango
2 thin slices of cantaloupe, rinds removed
6 to 8 ice cubes
2 tablespoons honey

What to do: 

Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend until mixture is frothy, about a minute (depending on the number of ice cubes you put).

Pour in a tall glass and enjoy!

Tips, Tricks and Tweaks: 

1. Instead of letting your blender run continuously, you can pulse it 10 seconds at a time until mixture is blended and frothy enough.
2. Cut the fruits into small pieces to avoid having chunks in your drink.
3. Try it with a bit of evaporated milk.
4. Use other fruits that are available!
5. Add or lessen honey according to your preference. Avoid using sugar!

Tamang tama sa tag init! Minsan di ko nilalagyan ng sweetener pag gusto kong malasahan lang yung pagka mix ng fruits.

Hi Joanne! I wanna try this one! Looks refreshing. You can also try my all time favorite fruit smoothie- pineapple+peaches+mangoes+apples. Tapos add some coconut juice para di gaanong malapot. It's the perfect tropical smoothie!
