Fruit smoothies

Smoothies are a super simple way to satisfying your hunger. Many of the recipes that follow include ingredients that are high in fiber, a nutrient that helps fill you up and stay full. Some of them contain good doses of protein, another nutrient with satiating powers.

It’s time to take out the blender.

How to make the smoothies?

Put all the ingredients into a blender and blend. If you like it very cold add some ice. If you like your drink more like a half meal or the consistency thicker, then add more mangoes, papaya, or banana to your drink. If you like a thinner drink then mix it with apple, orange, mangoes and pineapple juice. But be careful no concentrate, only real juice please.
