Recipe by Thermomix Blogger Helene – http://www.superkitchenmachine.com/2009/3522/thermomix-citrus-smoothie-shake.html
1 seedless orange
1 lemon (peeled)
1 lime (peeled)
1-2 tablespoons maple syrup (or use honey)
4-5 ice cubes
200 g. filtered water
- Put entire peeled orange into Thermomix bowl.
- Cut lemon in half. Remove seeds and put this lemon half into Thermomix. Squeeze the other half lemon for its juice (watch for seeds!) and put the juice into Thermomix. Repeat these actions with the lime.
- Add remaining ingredients to Thermomix bowl and blitz for 1 minute on speed 8.
I know, a full minute at speed 8 feels like an necessarily long processing time but the result is an utterly refreshing drink with virtually zero pulp. With only one tablespoon of maple syrup, there is just enough ’sugar’ to cut the sharp tart taste of the lemon and lime. Be advised, one spoon of maple syrup will NOT result in a sweet drink, and while this is how I enjoy it best, you might prefer twice the sugar component.
