Haskap Berry Slushie
Haskap berries are as nutritious as they are weird looking. Great in fruit salad or in a smoothie.
Servings 4 glasses
- 1 cup haskap berries
- 1 cup blueberries, preferably wild
- 1 cup cubed watermelon, seeds removed
- ¼ cup water
- ½ cup ice (otional)
I tried substituting the water with milk or blueberry juice. Milk gives a discordant texture - I'll try oat milk next time.
Blueberry juice made it too sweet and overwhelmed the other flavours. This smoothie is so sweet already, it doesn't need the sugar boost from juice. If you must add some, squeeze a quarter of a fresh lemon or orange in. Don't overdue it or you'll lose the elusive haskap berry flavour.
