A homemade fruit smoothie is delicious and well worth any effort involved in the making of itDiscover how to make smoothies - Not only are smoothies delicious but they are full of nutrients that the body can really get to work on. Fruit in its raw state has vitamins and enzymes which are vital for life. Most fruits have a good source of vitamin A, vitamin E and vitamin C as well as antioxidants which help prevent heart disease and cancer. The minute you cook fruit then you destroy these vital elements which are so important to our health. Raw fruit is also much easier for us to digest. A homemade fruit smoothie can be made up of any fruit you choose. There are no limitations except in your imagination. Use fresh fruit - as fruit juice which is bought in the supermarket can have lots of additives, colourings and flavourings added. Sometimes there is more water in cartons of juice bought from the supermarket shelf than there is juice. Always read the labels. Fibre is also important to our bodies and if we use a juicer all the time to make juice then we are missing out on something our bodies need to get rid of toxins and waste. Making a smoothie you use a blender which will leave enough bits of fruit intact for our bodies to make use of. Fruit acid is found in all fruit which has cleansing properties. Grapes and pineapple contain tartaric acid which helps prevent moulds and bacteria growth. Apples, apricots, lemons, prunes and peaches contain malic acid, a natural antiseptic which helps clean the liver and your intestines. Oranges help get rid of toxins from your digestive track with the help of pectin. How to make smoothies part of your everyday routine - As a general guideline we are now advised to eat five portions of fruit and vegetables every day. Making a homemade fruit smoothie can provide one or more of those portions. Try and drink your smoothie as soon as you have made it. Fruit will oxidize and lose its vitamin C content as soon as the air hits. There are lots of nutrients in the fruit's skin so don't peel your apples, peaches, plums and any other fruit where the skin can be eaten. Fruit have a high natural sugar content which can aggravate conditions such as candida. Buy fresh fruit without bruising. Fruit which is past its best will be low in vitamin content and fruit which is under ripe may give you indigestion.
