My peachy food drink is on the spotlight today, I call it food drink because it is packed with vitamins and minerals and it is concentrated enough to keep you full for a long time due to its pulpy consistency, it is thick and rich and full of a lot of nourishing goodness.

I actually went shopping for peaches to make desserts, then I stumbled on papayas and grapefruits, I didn’t have any intentions of making juice out of all of these fruits until I got home. I have a fruit bowl in my kitchen so for me, filling it up with a variety of fruits for my family is what drives me. So if you call this juice a mariellasmenu inspiration, you wouldn’t be far from the truth. I love fresh fruits and I try as much as possible to have them readily available for my family at all times. The fresher the fruits are; the sweeter, the juicier, the better!
