“An apple a day, keeps the doctor away”
Well that’s what I was always told as a child.
If you ask me, I’m still not to keen on the ‘apparent’ delicious taste of fruits.
Apples, oranges and pears simply don’t cut it and strawberries, mangoes and pineapples differ in taste according to the season.
If only there were a way of getting your 5-a-day, stay healthy and still not forcing a whole melon down your throat.
What, there is? How?
The way forward for us fruit haters are super smoothies. “And how are they exactly super?” you ask.
Well, super smoothies (a.k.a pure fruit smoothies with a fancy name) don’t only provided all the vitamins, minerals and fibers your body need to stay fit but, they also help beat any unhealthy snacking habits.
So, what fruits make up a Super smoothie?
There are 6 categories of fruit which can make up your Super smoothie: citrus, berries, pomes, melon, tropical and drupes.
Each one is full of all the vitamins and minerals you could need so, you will never be short of new and exciting flavors to try.
To help you get started with some Super smoothie ideas, I have named a few fruits which come under each category. So, get your shopping lists ready and start jotting fruit ideas down…
Fruit such as oranges, lemons and grapefruits all fall under this category.
Full of Vitamin C to help your immune and potassium to help your heart, these fruits shouldn’t go a miss in your Super smoothies.
Most people like berries, they are juicy and loved as a quick snack.
To name a few: strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, cranberries and even grapes will help provide the antioxidants needed to build a stronger you.
These fruits containing seeds will introduce even more Vitamin C and potassium to your life!
Apples and pears need not be feared anymore!
Watermelon, Honeydew and Cantaloupe are all great melons to try and with Vitamin C, why not? They all have different tastes and will therefore make experimenting with smoothies more fun!
Manganese and potassium will keep your bones and blood healthy!
Pineapples, bananas, mangoes and kiwi fruit are great examples of tropical fruits.
Peaches and plums will not only improve your vision but, with added potassium and beta carotene will also improve your immune systems functionality.
