A fruity buzz for a hot summer‘s day. Refreshing and cooling, and so good for you.
- 4 oranges
- 2 handfuls of strawberries
- 5–7 mint leaves
- 3–4 ice cubes
- Sparkling mineral water, to top up
Peel the oranges, then juice in a juicer or squeeze on a citrus press. Hull the strawberries – but chop one in half and reserve it to garnish the drink. Add the rest of the strawberries to the blender with the orange juice and blitz until blended. Add most of the mint leaves reserving one or two leaves to garnish, then pulse to break up and combine.
Pour the juice into a glass with some ice cubes and the reserved strawberry halves, stir to combine, then top up with mineral water. Mix gently to combine but not break up the bubbles, then add the reserved mint leaves and serve.
