Summer in a glass
Smoothies and juices are must in everyday diet to maintain your system healthy.I was really excited when i saw Divya's 'Show me your smoothie' event.This recipe is my entry for the event.
Oranges are rich in vitamin C and folic acid,they also have the highest amount of beta carotene.Oranges help to cleanse and improve the digestive system.It also helps to maintain a good healthy skin.
Kiwi is also excellent source of vitaminC and good source of beta carotene and minerals potassium,calcium,magnesium and phosphorous.It's also good for circulation,digestion and skin.
Mangoes are excellent for energy,vitality and promoting healhy skin.
Pineapple contains enzyme bromelain,which aids the digestion of protein and therefore is excellent for digestive problems.
The above information about the fruits is from the book Good House Keeping Smoothies and Juices.
Pineapple-2 tbsp chopped
Kiwi-2 fruits chopped
Mango pulp-1 tbsp
Orange freshly squeezed-2 cups
Crushed ice cubes-3 to 4 ice cubes
I haven't added any sugar to the juice ,the natural sweet from the fruits should be sufficient ,if you wish you could add some sugar or honey.
Put all the ingredients together in a blender,and blend well until nice and smooth.Pour it in a serving glass,top with some extra ice cubes if required.
