Apple-Banana Smoo-tea

One of the few fruits that I want my husband Frederick to eat are apples and bananas. And I’ve been literally force feeding him with both apples and bananas by making smoothies.  It’s only through their “smoothie form” that he would agree to ingest these fruits.  So I make sure that I make him apple-banana smoothie using tea water at least once every week . Sometime He makes it for both of us (prodding needed)


Here’s our simple recipe.



Ingredients:


Apples, diced – 2 medium size


Banana/s – 1 large or 2 medium size


Tea water (whatever is available) - 500 ml


Evaporated milk – 4 tbsp


*  tea water recipe, (see Tea Water for the recipe)

 
Preparation:


1. Place the diced apples,  banana, and a small amount of tea water in a blender and press pulse until you produce a smooth puree.


2. Add the rest of the ingredients and press the minimum button to blend the ingredients to smooth perfection


Serve with or without ice cubes.
