I’ve been having this running nose since wednesday last week, I had fever last Thursday, and I feel like going down with a flu since Thursday. It seems that my system is not responding to the muscle relaxant, anti-fever meds, and anti-histamin I’ve been taking. It’s time to shift to other alternative methods to combat these disease :D Actually all I am thinking is to boost my immune-system once more with fruits coz it’s been almost 3 days that I haven’t been ingesting Vitamin C rich fruits.
Secondly, I am lazy to cook so I’d rather have some smoothie for lunch today. And since blueberries, orange, and grapes are cheap these days so I hoarded for a few stocks. There you go, now you have an idea on the contents of my antioxidant smoothie 🙂
The ingredients I used are all considered antioxidants or have antioxidant properties. And the combination of the fruits with the honey and soya milk produced a delicious smoothie. Next time, when I feel better, I will use ice instead of cold water :-)
Orange, peeled – 1 whole, medium
Grapes – 50 g.
Blueberry – 50 g.
Kiwi, peeled – 1 whole, medium
Honey – 1 tbsp
Soya milk – 300 ml
Cold Water – 300 ml
Combine all of the above ingredients in a blender and blend.
