Want to eat more fruits to top up your nutritional quotient, but short of time? A yummy smoothie is the answer. 

We all are aware that eating three fruits a day is very beneficial for maintaining good health. But how many of us remember to eat our fruits everyday? I am sure most of you may agree with me on this and state,“Yes, we want to eat and we have loaded our fridge with fruits. But we forget or don’t have time to eat them everyday.”

I have got an excellent solution to this problem, after I started drinking smoothie for breakfast.

It is a mouth watering meal in a glass, loaded with vitamins, minerals, nutrients and anti-oxidants. It is divinely delicious too. You also feel content about the fact that you have had a healthy breakfast, and your day’s dose of fruit intake is taken care of. All you have to do is to pick  from the following ingredients:

  • Fruits: Banana,pear, apple, chikoo, papaya, pear, melon, guava etc…
  • Vegetables:Beetroot, carrot, tomato, cucumber, spinach
  • Dried strawberry, crane berry, prunes, apricot
  • Dry fruits: Almonds, walnut, dates.
  • Herbs:Basil, mint
  • Curd, milk, coconut water
  • Oats, barley
  • Sprouts
  • Honey

From the above ingredients you can make variety of smoothies of your choice. Here is the recipe of my favourite one.

Banana – 1
Apple/pear half
Dried strawberry – 2
Cranberry – 2
Almonds – 2
Curd-half a cup (if you do not want to have sour curd in the morning substitute it with milk.)
Mint leaves – 2 or 3 strands or basil/spinach
Sprouts/roasted Chana dal – 1 tablespoon.
Rosemary/cinnamon – a pinch.

Put them in a blender and run it for a minute. Your yummy and nutritious smoothie is ready. You could mix and match the fruits, vegetable and herbs of you choice for variety. You could also dry grind the nuts separately and use it as a topping or grind all of them together.

Smoothies can be a great addition to your kid’s meal too. Easier and quicker to have, and tastier than the usual serving of fruit!
