Welcome back to another video recipe, I’m
Chef Davy Devaux and I’m going to show you guys an amazing-amazing smoothie. I would
say the best in the world, and if not the best in the world, at the very least the most
strange and new and exciting smoothie you’ll ever see.
Why is it so strange and exciting you ask? Well it’s very difficult to show this on video
because how do you show texture and taste on video, it’s nearly impossible. So I came
up with this little experiment to show why this is such a strange smoothie.
Here’s a glass of water, here’s my smoothie and this is a spoon — just in case you didn’t
know. Now I am going to take a spoon of my smoothie and place it into the water and you’ll
notice it’s so airy and fluffy and it has such a weird texture that it floats and it
repels the water, and just imagine how this tastes.
Alright so now you’ve seen how strange and exciting this smoothie is, let’s get to making
it. You’re going to need four things, that’s apple, pineapple, avocado, and mint. That’s
it, for the decoration though you will need a bit of lemon and a raspberry or maybe a
strawberry, something to just stick together, it’s fine.
Okay, so let’s get into making it. Make Apple Juice
For your apple juice just cut some apples in half or maybe in smaller bits if your machine
can’t handle half apples, and you place them in and then you put this thing on top and
now you just turn the machine on. Making the Smoothie
Alright now to make the smoothie, what you want to do is add a couple chunks of pineapple
into the blender — just a little bit, add a little bit of apple juice, just do the measurements
more or less. So you want to just mix it up, taste it, see the consistency and then change
it. A piece of avocado, a little bit of mint, alright so now you turn the blender on — alright,
perfect. Now open it up and just take a taste. What
has happened here is the avocado has made it extremely fluffy. I think maybe just a
little more pineapple — now you really want to make sure you don’t add too much and you
want to blend the pineapple thoroughly, if you don’t you get a very stringy smoothie
and it’s not great, so you need a powerful blender.
If it’s very liquidy add some more avocado, if it’s a little bit too thick add some more
apple juice, and if you don’t taste the fiber as much then you add a little bit more pineapple.
You want to get that beautiful balance, now it’s very important to have this cold so what
I do is I actually put all the ingredients into the fridge to cool them down, but that
still isn’t quite enough so I add a little bit of ice and then blend it through at the
end. Alright, so look at that consistency, it’s
such a weird consistency, so airy and fluffy and…it’s really light. It’s like a whipped
cream but made out of fruit, it’s so weird and it’s all because of the avocado, it really
makes such a strange texture. Drink Garnish
Alright, so to decorate your smoothie, what I have here is a piece of apple, and I am
just going to slice it into very thin slices — okay, that should do. Okay so you take
a piece of apple, a chunk and you just press it into the glass, and this piece of apple
will be your base where you build on your decoration. Now you take four leaves of mint
and you just fan them out in your hand and you just place them on top of this, and now
you take a toothpick and you punch it through — perfect. Alright so now you take your apple
slices which you just cut before and you’re just going to flip the bottom four (4) the
other way around, so the skin is facing opposite ways, and then you just take one corner of
it and you punch it through the toothpick — okay, perfect. Now you fan it out…beautiful.
At this point you can take a look at it and maybe remove a couple of pieces of apple if
you find it’s a bit too much or add a couple more if you find you want some more.
Now you take an orange or a lemon and you just start cutting the skin and start cutting
in a circular sort of path — just like so. Perfect.
Once you’ve done that you take your circular piece and you just curl it around and then
you just want to punch this through so it goes through your toothpick and stays together.
Now where the toothpick punches out you just put a little raspberry — done. And this is
just a little bit more stunning way to present the smoothie than just putting it in a glass.
Let me know what you think, I hope you guys enjoyed this video — stick around to see
the end of the video. Okay, so thank you all for watching this video
recipe of how to make an amazing smoothie. I hope you guys enjoyed it, if you did then
please subscribe by clicking on the top left corner, and if you want to see more of my
videos you can do so by clicking on the right, right now. You can see all my other videos
whenever you want, there’s about 52 and after this one 53 or 54, depending on whether I
do two. Basically there are 52 free cooking videos, that’s a lot of cooking videos and
a lot of time to produce them. That costs me a lot of money to make, also. On that note,
funding is running a little bit low, so if I’m saying something then I’m saying that
I need a little bit more money from you guys. Sorry, I really didn’t want to ask this because
I wanted to create a free resource to make amazing sushi, and it seems to be that it’s
costing a lot more money than it’s actually producing, so at the moment I am going to
have to ask you guys to help fund me, sort of like crowd funding. It’s a little bit like
kick-starter what I’m going to offer but it’s on a more continuous basis, like a magazine
subscription. So without further ado, you click here which is Patreon, and basically
you choose an amount of money that you’re willing to give me for every video I produce.
I produce more or less about four (4) videos a month, maximum six (6) and you guys can
set a cap of how many videos maximum you’re willing to pay for and the amount will be
put is $1, $2 maybe $3 or $4, $5 maximum, don’t go over $5. That would really help me
create better content, better videos, and not have this problem of being restricted
to certain things. Also with more money I wouldn’t have to put up with trying to sell
you guys stuff, like Kenwood machines or knives or whatever, or I don’t know, spice racks.
You catch my drift? Thank you guys for all your support and do
remember the videos will still remain free whether or not you support me on Patreon.
Don’t worry about it, if you guys can’t afford it, that’s fine. I don’t want you guys to
spend beyond your means, and I hope you guys enjoy what I make.
Thank you, until next week. END
