☆.Recipe: Follyfo's 'Green & Stuff' Smoothie.☆

This is a nice green smoothie that'll have you feeling refreshed! It's made using 5 simple and easy to find ingredients around the Lagos axis.




Ingredients:
Apple
Pumpkin leaves Ugwu
Watermelon
Pineapple
PawPaw
Paw Paw - is a satisfying fruit as the high fibre levels mean you stay satisfied longer without taking excess calories.

Watermelons are mostly water — about 92 percent — but this refreshing fruit is soaked with nutrients. Each juicy bite has significant levels of vitamins A, B6 and C, lots of lycopene, antioxidants and amino acids. There's even a modest amount of potassium

Apples are extremely rich in important antioxidants, flavanoids, and dietary fiber. The phytonutrients and antioxidants in apples may help reduce the risk of developing cancer, hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease.

Pumpkin leaves  (Ugwu)- has a healthy amount of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Calcium, and Iron, while still staying very low on the calorie front. Aside from the vision benefits in Vitamin A that the leaves provides, there are also numerous skin benefits. Vitamin C helps to heal wounds and form scar tissue, and maintain healthy bones, skin, and teeth.

Pineapples - For all its sweetness, one cup of pineapple chunks contains only 82 calories. Pineapples are also fat-free, cholesterol-free and low in sodium. Not surprisingly, they do contain sugar, with 16 grams per cup.


Method:

Blend it all up!



Take care, until next time God bless!
