BLUEBERRY SMOOTHIE (Lassi)
Canada is a country of berries, we get many types of berries in plenty in their season. To name a few of them strawberry, blueberry, raspberry, blackberry, black mulberry, cranberry etc. I am not only enjoying them as fresh fruits but am using them a lot in my kitchen and testing and making a lot of new recipes out of them.
These berries were not available in some places of Africa,where I lived for many years. We only got them tinned or canned. In Canada, I see them freshly available in the shops. Some of the berries I have seen for the first time in my life!
Where you live influences the kind of fruits and vegetables available there. Like I remember, when I was in Kisumu, Kenya in 80's I really missed apples, which are easily available in many parts of the world, but not there. Only very small (lime) size apples were available in the winter for a very short period of time. Maybe now, because of modern transportation, they are available in Kisumu also today.
Blueberries available here are not only yummy, they are full of nutrients as well, and I have read many articles on them being good for the health of women. In this smoothie I have used frozen blueberries because smoothies are consumed cold, it is very easy to use the frozen ones, they need to be taken out from the freezer 30 minutes before you use them.
