A soothing summer smoothie by Hotel de Russie: Blueberry Ecstasy

Rocco Forte Hotels

An oasis in the heart of Rome, Hotel de Russie’s spa offers an atmosphere of serenity unmatched anywhere else in the capital. In between gentle laps of our pool or after an exquisite Rocco Forte Ritual, complement your wellness experience with a nourishing smoothie, or mix it up yourself at home using the following vegan-friendly recipe.

Ingredients (serves one):

60g blueberries
1 banana
5g almond butter
240ml of oat milk
½ teaspoon of vegan proteins
Fresh mint leaves 


Slice the banana finely, and place it in a blender. Add the other ingredients, leaving a couple of blueberries, and mix until the consistency is smooth but pourable.
