Fruit Shake Recipes

Carmina started blending her fruits rather than eating one bite each with a fork. It has been humid in the Philippines and when you have a lot of fruits that about to get old. Might as well blend it up and drink it smoothie style comfort in your own home. Carmina doesn't add any sugar since all fruits have their own sugar in it. Carmina knows a lot of family and friends who prefer to blend not only fruits as well vegetables. Carmina had informed Manang V she said why they have no teeth to eat the fruits with a fork. Carmina was telling Manang V some people she has seen through video drink a shake in the morning by adding fruits, vegetables, energy powder or collagen powder. You want to stay away from drinking something else you learn to enjoy blending your own food.
