Some of us just hate fruits while some of them just love it. Belonging to the first category myself, I eat fruits simply because I should. As much as I hate them, I know they do wonders for us. So I found a creative way of consuming them! By making smoothies.

Smoothies are an answer to all our prayers. Tasty, tangy, filling and glamorous, smoothies are so easy to make that you will fall in love with them once you try them.

Any smoothie is all about assembling the ingredients in a blender and to make it into a puree. Let me share some of my tried and tasted ones…

 1. Banana-Grape Smoothie

This thick and frothy drink is perfect to boost your metabolism. A ripe banana blended well with some grapes will give your day a great start!

6. Banana-Pomegranate Smoothie

Ideally pomegranate juice should be used to make this drink, however to retain the fiber I use the pomegranate with its seeds. Also, a few leaves of mint in it will be very effective in freeing you from those stress hormones.

Tips:

  • You can always play with differently flavored yogurts. Which are readily available in any local grocery store. Also if you enjoy soy milk or almond milk, you can use them instead of just simple buffalo/cow milk.
  • The muesli mentioned are available at any local medical stores. Most commonly available ones are Kellogg’s (company).
  • There are always the options of adding flax seed, chia seed, pumpkin seed, or any such hundreds of seed available in the market.
  • Add a bit of protein powder to your smoothies each time, if you go to the gym. It will do wonders for your muscles.

Happy Drinking….. Smoothies, I meant!
