Back from the Maldives I need to bring tropical feeling to my home because I ate so many tropical fresh fruits and I already miss them so much. I’m really happy the sun is coming out here and I can enjoy my smoothie outside while watching my crazy cats. They are jumping around the whole time and don’t know where to look first because of the thousands birds who fly around. Spring is so exciting.
As I already told you in my previous posts it is very important to chance the food ingredients you use from time to time to provide your body with different nutritional values. My breakfast is different every day to use different fruits, vegetables and legumes. This smoothie variation is a really light smoothie. When I drink such a smoothie I need to eat a snack during the midmorning. Normally I use nuts or buckwheat in my smoothies.
I like to make a light version because I know some of you love to drink smoothies during the day as a snack or try to reduce weight. I never tried to reduce weight because I have a good metabolic. So I don’t calculate calories or something like that. I eat what I want and take care it is most of the times healthy and contains good fatty acids because my body can digesting these food very good. In my opinion you can eat lots of calories when you eat the right ones. Lots of vegetables, some fruits, legumes, seeds, nuts. Your body work with these products and you recognize your body is changing. You get a better skin, better hair, you sleep better and feel fit. It really works. I know the difference because I ate only fast food and drink soft drinks when I was younger. I was ill very often and had less energy.
Give it a try and eat more healthy because you only have ONE LIFE!
Pinnaple and mango are such a great combination to get a tropical feeling in your kitchen. The coconut flavor is the base of this smoothie to make it more creamy. I use coconut milk (canned one) because I don’t use nuts or seeds to make the smoothie more creamy. I don’t like smoothies who looks too liquid.
Turmeric is the new natural superfood for me because it has great healthy and medical benefits. Turmeric has significant health benefits because of its biologically active component, called curcumin. A traditional part of Indian herbal medicine, curcumin is a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compound that could help keep you healthy. Curcumin is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect you from free radicals.
