Ingredients
  

  • 0,5 cup aronia berries (black chokeberry)
  • 2 apples
  • 1 banana
  • 0,5 cup water
  • 1 tbsp honey (or sweetener of your choice)
  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon

Instructions
 

  • Wash the apples, core them, and finally cut them into smaller chunks. Peel the banana and slice it. Wash the aronia berries.
  • Put the fruit and berries into the blender. Add the honey, water and cinnamon, or, alternatively, add them later to the mix. Blend until smooth. 
    Note #1: The aronia berries' skin is tough so small pieces might remain. Add more water to the mix if needed.
    Note #2: Some people like cooking the aronia first, to improve the taste. I suspect this comes at a price of some of the vitamins and minerals disappearing. If you feel like cooking them first, you can let them simmer in water on a saucepan, covered, for some 10 minutes. Remember to stir often.
  • Pour the ready smoothie into glasses, decorate with aronia berries and a stick of cinnamon.
