IMG 5951

This is a koshereye original. Inspired by a relative that introduced use to adding rose water to smoothies. A delicious crisp twist. Thank you, G-d for the varieties of fruits and ingredients you provide us to enjoy cold fresh drinks on hot summer days. The blessing for this smoothie is Shehakol.

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְ‑יָ אֱ‑לֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם שֶׁהַכֹּל נִהְיָה בִּדְבָרוֹ:

Baruch atah A-donay, Elo-heinu Melech Ha’Olam shehakol nihiyah bed'varo.

Blessed are You, L-rd our G‑d, King of the universe, by Whose word all things came to be.
