Hi, it’s Foodie Saturday again. Thanks for liking the carrot welcome drink.
It’s summer and to beat the heat, let’s continue with more of chilled welcome drinks.
By the end of the week, we usually have some fruits left in the fridge, let’s make a healthy weekend clearance drink out of it.
Why should we have fruits, a kid can also reply to that. But what are we losing by not having fruits?
Well it’s the same question with two angles and to make the angle straight, let us check what fruits give us —
— Fruits are source of essential nutrients, including potassium, dietary fibre and vitamin C.
— Dietary Fibre from fruits, as part of an overall healthy diet, helps reduce blood cholesterol level, may lower risk of heart disease.
— Most fruit are naturally low in fat, sodium and calories.
The list is endless, and the recipe is painless. So what for we are waiting?
Here we go—-
WEEKEND FRUIT DRINK
Musk melon 1/2
Ripe Mango 1
Any other fruit if you wish
Sugar accoding to taste
Crusted nuts and raisins
A scoop of vanilla icecream
Peel, deseed and cut all the fruits.
Mix all ingredients together except nuts and icecream.
Blend this in a blender.
Top up with nuts, raisins and icecream.
It serves six.
If summer is not the excuse good enough to try it, I don’t know what else will be.
