Healthy Smoothie Recipe..
As it's Friday, I thought I would share a really delicious smoothie recipe, smoothies are incredibly filling making them great for when hunger pangs start to creep up..and your hand starts to reach for the cookie jar. There is nothing unhealthy here, it's all just pure fruit, the best snack you can have. You'll need to juice the oranges first (if you don't own a juicer this recipe can be made without the orange juice as the banana is what thickens it up, alternatively you could also add some live yogurt.) Just pour the fresh orange juice into the blender with the other ingredients and blend, blend, blend until your delicious drink is made. Smoothies are best made in the morning for breakfast as they contain fibre, so you're getting the majority of your daily nutrition before you've even started your day, kiwis are a really great fruit to add as they contain Vitamins A, C and E. The best thing of all...this recipe tastes amazing!! Give it a try, it'll wake you up and get you ready for the day much better than any sugary cereal...guaranteed!
Bananas- High in Potassium, great for lowering blood pressure
Oranges- Excellent source of Vitamin C- The important phytonutrient found in Oranges is actually contained mostly in the peel and pith, so make sure to peel the orange carefully leaving the pith on before juicing to get all the benefits.
Kiwis- Another excellent source of Vitamin C- Also has antioxidant protecting properties.
