Algae, figs and kombucha - an exotic smoothie with cranberries, avocado and mint

Hello my dears,

what I love about the months of August and September is the fact that it’s fig season. As a snack, in smoothies or in the oven – figs are just one of my favourites.

Did you know: the darker the skin, the sweeter the fruit flesh. The best way to store the figs is in the fridge, they will last a little longer.

Today, we are going to make a delicious smoothie. I had the idea when I was contemplating what to do with some very ripe figs. I mixed them with half a radicchio, I think they go together very well.

I hope you find this smoothie just as delicious as I do. You’re welcome to modify the smoothie, if you find something tasty in your fridge.

As a special ingredient, I chose to add some nori algae flakes. It might be a bit unconventional but I find it goes very well with smoothies.

Nori algae is also used for the seaweed sheets, which are used to make sushi, just to give you an idea what it tastes like.

They belong to the family of the red algae and are native to the coast of Japan. If you don’t want to buy nori algae flakes, you can just buy the sheets and use your fingers to crush them and then scatter them over your food or smoothie.

For this easy algae, figs and kombucha smoothie with cranberries, avocado and mint recipe you need those ingredients
