Orange Blossom, Banana and Strawberry Smoothie



I love orange blossom water, an aphrodisiac coming from a fragrant orange adding a fruity aroma to sweet dishes. A staple in Moroccan pastries, orange blossom can be sprinkled on couscous, and most commonly in almond meal based desserts. Due to its high concentration, it's important not to pour too much. It adds a really nice "je ne c'est quoi" to your standard smoothie. Perfect for a Sunday brunch smoothie. I hope you enjoy it!
