Smoothies, consumed in glasses or bowls, are rich in protein, nutrients, vitamins, and other goodness. They curb cravings by making one feel full for longer. When made with the right ingredients, they can work as healthy, and easy-to-make, meal replacements. The recent boost in the popularity of smoothies has led to people experimenting with myriad combinations of fruits and vegetables, creating exciting and mouth-watering smoothie combinations.
One such combination is the Pineapple Kiwi Smoothie. Combine milk, yoghurt if you want, pineapple juice, and kiwi, and blend it all together. This basic recipe can be tweaked to your preference to include protein powder, oats, chia seeds, flaxseed, and a sweetener like honey according to taste.
This smoothie comes with a variety of health benefits. Pineapple is loaded with minerals, vitamins and antioxidants that prevent serious diseases. The compound bromelain in it aids digestion, helping to break down protein. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that help you recover after intense workouts. On the other hand, kiwis are rich in dietary fibres, which aid digestion and vitamins that help boost the immune system and prevent diseases. It's also rich in iron and antioxidants that promote overall health.
Working together, as a Smoothie, with other ingredients like milk, oats, and so on, the Pineapple Kiwi Smoothie is a sure-shot way of being healthy.
