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.
This smoothie is the one normally i used to make almost every week.The combination oranges,pineapple,mango and kiwi is my all time favourite.
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.
Ingredients:
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.
Method:
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.
