7cupsfruit pureejust use whatever fresh or frozen fruit you have on-hand. (Check the dirty dozen list for which produce it's especially important to buy organic and which produce it doesn't matter as much.) For this recipe I threw in strawberries, peaches, one orange, and the juice from 6 small limes. You could also use mangos, kiwi, pineapple, blueberries, bananas, raspberries, etc.
Start with 1/3 cup real maple syrup. I ended up adding another 1/4 cupbut just taste to see how you like it. Amounts will depend on the type of fruits you use, since some are sweeter than others.
Optional: rum or Riesling wine — see amounts below in the instructions.
Optional nutritional boost: 1 scoop of my favorite collagen! This provides healthier skin and nailsimproves gut and joint health, decreases inflammation, builds or restores muscle, improves metabolism, and more. (10% off with the code KOP.)
Keep adding fruit until you get about 7 cups in your blender and puree well. If your fruit has seeds, you may want to strain it at this point and then add it back to the blender or pour it into a pitcher for serving easily.
As you serve the drinks (our glasses hold 1 cup), leave room to add in the the optional rum for adult drinks and stir well — I used 3/4 of a shot glass (which =1 ounce, which also =1/8th cup). If desired, you can also stir in a splash of riesling wine.
For the secret burst of nutrition…
Before you're done blending, add a scoop of my favorite collagen to the blender and no one knows, since this blends easily into cold OR hot liquids, and there's no taste!
