Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 1 orange (peeled)
  • 300 grams of watermelon
  • 150 grams of raspberries
  • 8 basil leaves
  • 2 tablespoons of organic passion fruit extract
  • 1 tablespoon of organic lucuma powder

Preparation: 

Pop the orange, watermelon, raspberries, basil, organic passion fruit powder, organic lucuma powder and organic coconut oil into your blender. Pour in a small cup of water and blitz until nice and smooth. Now add in the apple and repeat before serving in a long, tall glass.

Tip: use frozen raspberries and serve with plenty of ice on particularly warm days 

Superfoods used in this recipe:

  • Organic Passion Fruit Extract: a temptingly sweet tropical superfood that’s crammed with beneficial nutrients including vitamin C, provitamin A (beta carotene), potassium, magnesium and selenium.
