Pink Pinether Smoothie

Share

pinkpinether1It was on a gloomy morning in KL (Kuala Lumpur) a couple of weeks back when I first came up with this super sexy smoothie recipe.  It was a ridiculously grey day so I decided that  a pop of color would nicely brighten up my mood.  And obviously – nothing beats pink.

With that thought, I went straight to grab one of my favorite fruits of all time – the vibrant Dragonfruit that may look quirky but is packed with a nutritious punch.  This fiber rich & low-cholesterol delight is heart-healthy, high in antioxidants, helps fight diabetes and  even signs of aging! Convinced yet ladies?  Dragonfruits come in red & white and although they don’t differ nutrient wise, I went for the red to get that pop of pink for this recipe.

pinkpinether2This raw, vegan shake not only look so sweet but also tastes like a treat! Pineapples lend some tangy goodness, apples give a natural sweetness while spearmint nicely refreshes.  Go head and get this Pink Pinether blitzing, it’s so good Inspector Clouseau might just come running :)
