One of the great things I like about this time of the year is having a refreshing cold drink. And what better way to enjoy it by making it from fresh healthy ingredients such as fruit or vegetables, which ever is more convenient to yourself.
According to a recent news report, scientists say they have come up with the ultimate smoothie that contains all the power packed ingredients, which will prevent you from contracting the following diseases, heart disease and possible strokes later in life.
Here are some of the ingredients, which are in this smoothie. There are seven fruits in total, which are grapes, apples, blueberries and strawberries. It does contain others also, which are more of an exotic nature according to the report. One of them is called cowberry, which is a superfood and can be called (lingonberry).
Another of the ingredients and get this, has 30 percent more vitamin C than orange juice has. That’s quite a staggering amount. The scientists did experiments with the fruit juice concoction using pig arteries to see what the effect would be.
They found that the artery walls were more relaxed. When exposed to the combined fruit juices so in a human this would mean that more oxygenated blood would flow to the heart making it more efficient and healthier. So if you want to make your healthy heart super smoothie. You need the following ingredients, if you are able to get them that is.
You will need the following:
30 x grapes it doesn’t say whether they are black or green
15 x blueberries which are a well-known superfood
9 x strawberries
1 x apple use half of one
8 x lingonberries if you are able to get hold of them
5 x acerola berries the same applies to the above
5 x chokeberry the same applies to the above
There is three ingredients there that I have never heard of before. I am going to check where we buy our food from to see if they keep them in stock. If you do have trouble sourcing any of the ingredients I can only suggest that you try suitable alternatives enjoy making your own super smoothie.
