Zingy Fruity Smoothie

Starting your day with a zingy fruity smoothie, will leave you feeling refreshed and energised. Having smoothie in the morning, means you do not have to waste hours in the kitchen, thinking of what to cook for breakfast. The good thing about smoothie, is that you can experiment with them and create your own recipes. Not only do you create your own recipes, you also get to have breakfast packed with vitamins and minerals, that will leave your skin feeling smooth and healthy.
I have created and tried out different smoothie recipes and I will be sharing one today. The star fruit in this smoothie is grapefruit.


  • Grapefruit is one of my husband's best citrus fruit. Some can be sweet and some can be just a little bit bitter. He recently bought some and I thought it would be a great vitamin c packed fruit to add  in smoothie. 
  • Grapefruits are low in calories but packed with Vitamins A and C.
  • They are packed with fibre, which helps to prevent constipation, promoting healthy digestive tract.
  • Grapefruit helps lower blood pressure and improve heart health. The nutrients such as potassium, lycopene, vitamin C and choline, helps maintain a healthy heart.
However, just as they have benefits, they also have side effects. Eating grapefruits or drinking its juice can interfere with medications such as blood pressure medications, cholesterol medications, cytotoxic medications, amongst others. Please, consult your doctor if you not sure.
