After a long day at work or when you simply feel you need to slow down the pace, what do you do? For some a workout may be the solution or maybe just take a walk and enjoy nature. We on the other hand like to go crazy in the kitchen!
Fun fact: Many of you surely know that watermelon and cucumber consist of over 90% water? But did you also know that apples consist of approximately 85 % water? However, this doesn’t mean that they lack fiber or nutrition – on the contrary! This recipe includes wild apples, which we absolutely love!
Ingredients (Serves 2)
½ fresh pineapple (or 200 gr frozen)
2-3 cm of fresh ginger (peeled)
2 bottles NOA Wild Apples & Gooseberry
1 green apple (thinly sliced)
Use a blender and add the pineapple, mint and ginger. Gradually add the NOA Wild Apple & Gooseberry. Mix for a few minutes and then pour everything in two glasses, add ice cubes and garnish with sliced apple and mint. Voilà, it’s as simple as that– give it a try and let us know what you think!

For us, raspberries are the symbol of summer and therefore the perfect ingredient in a cooling smoothie. We added some pineapple juice and passion fruit to get that tropical feeling as well.
Fun fact: Raspberries are deeply symbolic. For instance, in Christian art, the raspberry is the symbol for kindness.

2 dl frozen raspberries
Pineapple juice (or tropical juice)
A dash of honey
Mix all the ingredients in a blender. Choose the amount of juice based on how thick/thin you prefer your smoothie. Serve in a glass bottle with a glass straw, preferably cold.
