CHEF'S NOTE

"I recommend using very ripe fruit because they are sweeter. Vary as desired, but choose white, yellow or green fruit when possible, because red or blue berries will give your drink a less appetizing colour. Kiwi, green grapes and pineapple are also delicious choices. But when using pineapple, it’s better to filter the mixture so the drink’s texture isn’t too fibrous.

I also often use frozen fruit to make this type of drink. Not only are they available year-round but they add a cool touch. They also make the preparation easier if you aren’t used to preparing flavour mixtures".
