Postworkout exotic Smoothie with Brazil Nuts


What makes this a great drink after you exercise?

Moringa powder from +Aduna (you can get it easily from +Holland & Barrett ) is full of proteins, beta carotene, calcium, potassium and vitamin C. It will help you to recharge quicker.
Baobab, also from +Aduna,  contains more antioxidants than any other whole fruit but it is also packed with vitamin C and fibre.

Pineapple, papaya and kiwi, all bought from my local +Tesco,  have great anti-inflammatory benefits and they also contain good digestive enzymes.
Ginger aids digestion as well and it helps you fight viruses and bacteria, in case you brought some little guests home with you from the gym. I love this organic ginger from +Riverford, which is really reasonably priced.
Watermelon contains high amount of Lycopene which is a carotenoid phytonutrient that's especially important for our cardiovascular health, and an increasing number of scientists now believe that lycopene is important for bone health as well.   

Coconut water contains electrolytes, which you lose during an intensive exercise via sweat, so this way you get the right hydration fast. I really love the +Cocoface Coconuts +Cocoface coconut water.
Passion fruit is also very healthy but I mainly use it because it is my favorite fruit.
Brazil nuts are a good source of proteins but they also contain selenium (about 4 give you the right daily amount).Selenium is especially important for a healthy thyroid function.
Oranges contain Vitamin C and a lot of dietary fibre.

This drink tastes much much better than it looks! :)
