Mellow flavour that you don’t get from fresh fruits.
Using stewed fruit is a novel approach to smoothie making, but this fruit adds a mellow flavour that you don’t get from fresh fruits.
Place all of the fruits into a pan with 2 tablespoons water, the lemon juice and the honey. Bring to the boil, then turn down to a simmer. Poach the fruit for 10 minutes or until it is tender. Remove from the heat and let cool. Place the stewed fruit in a blender with the yoghurt and add 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice to the stewed fruit before blending. Process for 1 minute or until smooth. Pour into a glass to serve. Drizzle a little extra honey over the smoothie if desired.
Stewed rhubarb is also delicious in a smoothie, and stewing makes it a lot easier to process the fruit together.
