A couple of weeks ago I posted a recipe for a healthy alternative to ice cream. One of the ingredients was raspberries which is great as they are now in season and readily available. Now we are into June, Wimbledon season is fast approaching, strawberries are very abundant in the supermarkets or you could go and pick your own. Here is a recipe to take advantage of both raspberries and strawberries. The recipe is taken from one of Jason Vale’s books - over 100 delicious juices and smoothies. If you haven’t heard of Jason Vale, he is the guru of juicing.
- ½ fresh medium pineapple
- 1 handful of raspberries
- 1 handful of strawberries
- 4 ice cubes
Juice the pineapple and pour into the blender. Add the raspberries, strawberries and ice. Blend until creamy and smooth.
So why is it the love tonic? Along with many other nutrients, one of the main minerals found in these berries is zinc. Zinc is a key mineral to help boost libido. Enjoy your juice and have fun!!
