Health Benefits of the ingredients used here
In the recipe here, I used Watermelon, Blueberries and Kiwifruit as main fruits. You can add more fruits as per your choice and availabity. Pineapple, Banana, Melons are other great additions here that will add thickness and a wonderful taste to smoothie.
We all watermelon and summers are the right time to enjoy these. Slice and chill watermelon, sprinkle chaat masala( an Indian spice mix used in various snacks, street food, and salads) and enjoy. It is also a great fruit that beautifully pairs up berries and apple. Each juicy bite of watermelon is rich in anti-oxidants, vitamins B and C and very low in sodium.
Blueberries are one of the best natural anti-oxidants, helps in weight loss, boosts brain health and are anti-inflammatory. One of the best food for people who have hypothyroid.
Kiwis are one of the richest source of Vit. C and best food to boost the immune system, good for skin.
I also add mint or coriander leaves which have great detoxifying property. These herbs have cooling effect on body, purifies our blood and cleanses our system.
Jal-jeera/Chaat masala imparts great flavor to my fruit smoothies do try it once (instead of any sweeteners if, you add any) as these impart any fruit preparations refreshing taste.
You can get these spice mixes at any Indian Grocery store/online or you can make these at home also. Will soon update recipes for my chaat masala and jal-jeera powder.
Substitute for Chaat Masala– As a substitute for these add Black or Himalayan Pink salt with some crushed roasted cumin powder. My word you will love these spice mixes in your fruits, juices or smoothies and salads.
You can also add a tsp of Chia Seeds, that make the smoothie more thick and filling.
