Sunshine Sharon …. and all things orange

Sunshine Sharon …. and all things orange

With fruit smoothies I think I’d rather just eat the fruit but this Sunshine Sharon is a perfect way to enjoy a fruit that’s abit different, with some veg and spice thrown in. Surely that’s got to be good for us??

Sharon fruit are a fantastic source of fibre and vitamin C – I didn’t know a huge amount about them but now I’ve just discovered they contain Betulin acid which is an anti cancer agent- what’s not to love. I have Sharon fruit in lots of smoothies ( delicious with dark frozen cherries) and even better is most of the supermarkets do a pack of 3 for 99p…..

If you like this one then I’m sure you’ll like a couple of others too try Green Dream Cocktail

And maybe Get Over the Greens?

Have fun with these lovely smoothies and juices!

Serves 1

  • 1 large Carrot
  • 1 large Orange, freshly squeezed
  • 1/2 a Persimmon (Sharon Fruit)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ginger, either frozen or fresh.
  • 150ml Water (approx.)
  • Handful of ice

Preparation Method

  1. Put a handful of ice onto the blender.
  2. Wash the carrot and chop the end off but don’t bother peeling the carrot. Cut into small rounds and put into the blender/ smoothie maker / Nutribullet
  3. Add 1/2 a Sharon fruit cut into a couple of pieces and the Juice from 1 squeezed Orange.
  4. Add about 1/2 teaspoon of ginger, the ready chopped frozen ginger is brilliant. If using fresh, cut off a small piece, peel it and then either chop or grate.
  5. Add about 150ml of water but it’s really down to personal preference how creamy or not you want this. I like it more “juice” than “smoothie” so always start with at least 150ml.
  6. Blitz, Pour and Enjoy
