So, I spent my time last week celebrating International Sweet Potato Week. Now, next week is all about the beautiful Pepper. I teamed up with the ‘It’s Pepper Time‘ initiative, in order to promote the beauty of peppers and all their different varieties. And, ready for the week ahead, I decided to share a new recipe with you featuring an orange pepper – to start you off for a week of celebrating peppers.
For this recipe, I decided to use an orange pepper to make a smoothie. I combined an orange pepper with some almond milk, banana, pineapple, mango, ginger and lemon juice. This made a wonderfully vibrant orange drink, filled with deliciously fruity flavours and subtle heat from the fresh ginger. I love drinking lots of freshly made smoothies during the springtime, so this is definitely my favourite drink at the moment!
I hope you enjoy the recipe!
