These are the properties of the ingredients in this smoothie


First of all, we have El Pajarero dried figs, which are the star ingredient of this recipe. Dried figs are an excellent source of fibre, which makes them a perfect ally for intestinal transit. They are also rich in antioxidants and contain minerals such as calcium, iron and potassium. And we cannot forget their delicious sweet taste, which combines perfectly with the rest of the ingredients.


Pineapple is another key ingredient in this smoothie. This tropical fruit is rich in vitamin C, which helps to strengthen the immune system and prevent illness. In addition, pineapple contains an enzyme called bromelain, which promotes protein digestion and helps reduce inflammation. It also has diuretic properties, so it can be useful in combating fluid retention.


Green kiwis are an important source of vitamin C and vitamin K, which contribute to the maintenance of healthy skin and blood clotting, respectively. In addition, they contain an enzyme called actinidin, which helps break down proteins and aids digestion. Kiwis also have antioxidant properties, which help fight free radicals and prevent premature ageing.


Avocados are rich in healthy fats, such as oleic acid, which helps reduce cholesterol and prevent cardiovascular disease. It is also a good source of fibre and contains vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin E, folic acid and potassium. Avocado is a satiating food, which can help control appetite and reduce calorie intake.


Green apples are another important source of fibre, which helps to regulate intestinal transit and maintain a feeling of satiety. It also contains antioxidants and vitamins such as vitamin C and vitamin A. Green apples are low in calories and rich in water, making them an ideal choice for a balanced diet.


Last but not least is peppermint. This aromatic plant has digestive and anti-inflammatory properties, and can help relieve stomach upset and improve digestion. Plus, its fresh, minty aroma adds a special touch to this green smoothie.


As you can see, each of the ingredients in this cleansing green smoothie has its own health benefits. Combined in a single recipe, they form a delicious and nutritious smoothie that can be a perfect choice to start the day with energy. Try it, you'll love it!
