SMOOTHIE SERIES – Tropical Pleasure II

Hola mi familia! Çomo esta?
I hope my blog post meets you well.. Here is another exciting new recipe on the Tropical Pleasure combo of the SMOOTHIE SERIES BY EBONYMEDICS

Today’s combo comprises the following fruits

  • Pineapple 🍍
  • Strawberry 🍓
  • Coconut {coconut milk}

METHOD OF PREPARATION

And as usual, we will discuss the health benefits of these Tropical fruits individually.

Coconut Milk 🌴

HEALTH BENEFITS

Coconut milk is lactose free, so it can be used as a milk substitute, especially for those who are lactose intolerant..remember we mentioned the use of tiger nut milk in the previous post.. It is also a popular choice with vegans and makes a great base for smoothies, milkshakes or as a dairy alternative in baking.

Easy Way To DIY coconut milk

Try making your own coconut milk with just water and unsweetened coconut flakes. Heat the water (make sure it doesn’t boil), add the flakes and blend. Pour through a colander to filter out the coconut pulp, then squeeze through a cheese cloth to filter out the smaller pieces of coconut. Use immediately or store in the fridge for 3-4 days.

Strawberry 🍓

HEALTH BENEFITS

Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamins C and K. They provide a good dose of fibre, folic acid, manganese and potassium. They also contain significant amounts of phytonutrients and flavanoids which makes strawberries bright red. They have been used throughout history in a medicinal context to help with digestive ailments, teeth whitening and skin irritations. Their fibre and fructose content may help regulate blood sugar levels by slowing digestion and the fibre is thought to have a satiating effect. The vibrant red colour of strawberries is due to large amounts of Anthocyanidin, which also means they contain powerful antioxidants and are thought to protect against inflammation, cancer and heart disease.
