Strawberry Smoothie Lovers Rejoice!
Choju Irish Sea Moss with Superfood blends would like to introduce you to one of our favourite smoothies, the Pomegranate and Strawberry Smoothie blend! What is it about strawberries that makes us fall in love every single time you eat one. Choju has taken that feeling and bottled it, literally, in our Pomegranate & Strawberry Smoothie.
To be fair we first thought of a pomegranate and Irish moss blend but then the colour of the pomegranate once it was mixed with the almond milk did not show that beautiful, luscious Candy Apple dark red colour that we’ve come to know and love. So, with a lot of thought determination and trial-and-error, the strawberry actually became the powerhouse and ultimately the star of this flavour combination. The strawberry’s rich vibrant red colour that has been ripened on the tree, added with the pomegranate makes the colour of these healthy juices come alive!
Irish Sea Moss Pomegranate & Strawberry Smoothie
The moment you open the bottle of the Choju Irish Sea Moss Pomegranate & Strawberry Smoothie, your senses awaken. For instance, both furaneol and methoxyfuraneol, are in many other fruits, like pineapple, but for some reason they stand out so much more in strawberries. It is these components why strawberries are so widely used in pastries, smoothies and even perfume fragrance. The aroma of the strawberry hits you, you start to remember those beautiful summer days when you were able to walk in the light and the sun cascading on your skin causing it to have that radiant summer glow. You immediately want to put the bottle to your lips in hopes that it tastes as good as it smells. Ours Does!
We harvest a lot of our own fruits whenever possible and strawberries are no exception, between June and July, is the time when certified organic strawberries are ready for picking. Strawberries range in taste, some are sour, even a little bitter, this can be caused by extreme heat, strawberries do not do well in heat. If it’s cool and cloudy the berries will not taste very good as well. Also the berries can definitely be acidic, but when they are at the perfect ripeness they are absolutely sweet and juicy.
There is a fungal disease called Leather Rot, it makes the berries have a leather texture and the infected berries will definitely taste bitter. This problem can occur in a wet weather climate, Infected fruit have a leathery texture and bitter taste.
Choju is very proud to do our own harvesting to ensure our Pomegranate and Strawberry Smoothie meets the Choju certified organic standard for taste as well as nutritional benefit. This way we can ensure; once again that there are no added heavy metals, no mold and certainly no glyphosate on the strawberries that you will be consuming from when enjoying our Pomegranate and Strawberry Smoothies.
