You will need
- For 2 servings 250 g:
- banana 1 piece;
- 300 g strawberries;
- water to taste;
- mint for decoration.
Contaminated berries, rinse with water, clean from the stems. If strawberries are free of sand and you are sure its clean berries, it is better not to wash – they will lose some of its flavor and aroma. Pour the strawberries a little water and smash it with a blender until smooth.
Now peel the banana peeled, cut into small pieces and add to the strawberries. Again grind the mixture until a homogeneous mass. If you chop the banana and strawberries at the same time, there is a high probability that the banana will darken. The finished product will have an unattractive brownish color. In the proposed method, the banana slices are acidic, and this prevents it from darkening.
You get a fairly thick mixture, more like a puree than a juice. Dilute mass with cold water. If desired, squeeze the juice of a quarter lemon and mix. Pour the drink into glasses, add ice cubes and garnish with mint or strawberry. Insert into glasses cocktail straw and serve.
Blenders are of two types. Stationary has a bowl, which is located inside the knife. Have immersion blender so there are no bowls. It is a knife-grinder with electric motor itself is placed in any receptacle with this product. He and the other device are suitable for the manufacture of strawberry-banana juice.
In the same way, using the blender you can prepare juices of other juicy berries: raspberries, currants, blackberries. Only in this case the resulting puree must RUB through a sieve to separate the coarse seeds and peel. Then puree diluted with water to the desired consistency. If you want you can use mineral water with gas. Try also fresh kiwi. Ripe, soft fruit peel and grind in a blender.
