Energizing Haskap Smoothie
February 6, 2022
Haskap, the delicious edible honeysuckle, has been part of my childhood memories, even if I didn’t know its pretty name at the time. This small wild fruit with a complex flavor skillfully dotted my random forest journeys. Several decades later, I reconnected with this delicious gift of nature that makes my early morning, pleasant for sure.
I add a big handful of them to my morning smoothie. Since coffee has never been part of my routine, berries have free rein to give me all the energy I need. The sweet and perfect acidity of camerise faithfully surprises my taste buds, even after adopting this habit for a long time.
I also enjoy its incredible nutritious and antioxidant mineral properties, knowing that non-hybridized wild fruits are a “natural added value”. Here is my recipe for a morning Burgundy Haskap Smoothie:
1 3/4 fresh oat milk (or 1 3/4 cups water + 1 tsp almond butter)
3 tbsp hemp hearts (or more)
2 tbsp ground flax seed (or more)
1/2 cup frozen haskap berries (or more)
4-5 pitted dates
Preparation: Grind all the ingredients in a high-speed blender. Enjoy immediately.
