Healthy super-food smoothie
Fruit smoothie should be sugar-free,healthy and beneficial to the body. In my fruit smoothie,I have used banana,mango,berries,apple and lemon. This smoothie is packed with vitamin C. I used mango and banana because of their sweetness and there is no need of any artificial sweeteners . These fruits are natural sweetener, they are rich in antioxidants and photo-chemical that keep diseases away from your body.The fruits I chose are good for healthy skin and hair. They are rich in beta carotene,vitamin A,E and D. It is a well known fact that fruits lower cholesterol and the risk of heart diseases and stroke. These fruits give instance energy.
Fruits are low in fat,sodium and calories naturally. They are rich in potassium and help lower blood pressure. Fruits are delicious and some have high water content and prevent dehydration.
To make yourself one of this,you need the following,however you can decide to use fruits of your choice. You can also use yogurt or milk in place of water.
Here’s how I made mine. You can decide to make yours differently, the end result is what matters.
Watermelon,pineapple,kiwi,papaya and orange are also great options.
1 medium size mango
200g frozen berries
1 medium size apple
Juice of a whole lemon
150ml of water
To start with, wash the fruits you intend to use thoroughly and place on a clean surface. Peel the banana, chop your apple,chop your mango with skin on. Mango skin provides fibre and it is a waste of beneficial nutrients if peeled off and thrown away. Place your all fruits ( including the frozen berries) in a food processor,add lemon juice and water. Blend until till smooth. You might want to add iced cubes to your blend. Fruit smoothies are satisfying and an easier way to get your 5 a day.
Pour your delicious blend into a wine cup, garnish with a slice of lemon. You can invite your friends over for a nice drink of your healthy drink.Enjoy!
