Powerdrink N°3: beauty mask for the stomach
Believe me, this drink has been a real challenge to photograph! Due to the mixture of the violet acai berry powder, the dark orange quince sauce and the green portulaca leaves it quickly adopted an uninviting brownish greyish colour (just like a facial mud pack!)
I took two nice glasses we inherited from Grandpa - those with the silver rims, poured in the drink and decorated it with pieces of beautiful apple skin. Now a little bit of overexposure, focus clearly on the apple skins and a seductive name... I hope, you'll like my marketing efforts!
To prepare Powerdrink N°3 in your own kitchen, blend
a handful of portulaca leaves
1 teaspoon acai berry powder
1tablespoon quince sauce ( to be prepared like apple sauce; can be substituted by quince jelly or quince juice)
1 teaspoon flax seed oil
1 teaspoon almond butter
a glass of water (2 glasses, if you prefer your drink more liquid)
Enjoy and be healthy!
