Pink Pinether Smoothie

Share

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

With that thought, I went straight to grab one of my favorite fruits of all time – the vibrant Dragonfruit that may look kinda 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? Dragonfruits come in red & white and although they don’t differ nutrient wise, I went for the red variery to get that pop of pink for this recipe.

pinkpinether2This raw, vegan and paleo-friendly shake not only look so sweet but also tastes like a treat. Pineapples lend some tangy goodness, apples give a natural sweetness while spearmint pleasantly refreshes.

Go ahead and get this Pink Pinether blitzing, it’s so good Inspector Clouseau might just come running! :)
