Hello fam! How have you been? I hope my blog post meets you well today.. Well, I’m doing great too! I’m so so excited about the SMOOTHIE SERIES BY EBONYMEDICS! I’m sure you are too! Let’s get started!
Previously, in my last blog post, I metioned that we were going to be discussing a smoothie innovation known as TROPICAL PLEASURE. When we see and hear those words..nature comes to mind, ain’t it? Yes, it sure does.

 Just as you rightly thought, TROPICAL PLEASURE SMOOTHIE  comprises tropical fruits that gives you that tropical flavour! Let’s get started!

The first combo on my TROPICAL PLEASURE SMOOTHIE comprises the following fruits –

  • Watermelon
  • Pineapple
  • Banana
  • Ginger{optional}


What are the health benefits of these fruits?
Red Watermelon 🍉 
Red watermelon is a kind of tropical fruit that contains key antioxidants which provides protection against the effects of chronic inflammation and cell damage. These antioxidants watermelon contains include – vitamin C, vitamin A, beta-carotene, and lycopene.

Pineapple🍍
Pineapple,one of my favorite fruits, has a special enzyme called Bromelain which helps promote healthy digestion by breaking down protein. Bromelain is also a potent anti-inflammatory that protects your body from the effects of chronic inflammation.

  • Banana 🍌

Bananas provide a variety of vitamins and minerals which includes Vitamins A, B6 & C, Manganese, Potassium, Dietary Fiber, Protein, Magnesium, Folate, Riboflavin, Niacin & Iron. 

Ginger
Ginger is a rhizome that has a slightly spicy flavor that pairs well with melons. Ginger contains high amounts of potassium and is a potent anti-inflammatory due to the presence of gingerol.

  • Cold liquid base like water, milk, yoghurt or tiger nut milk {appropriate for those who are lactose intolerant}


Water, sometimes, makes smoothie watery when used as a base.. I’d rather prefer the use of yoghurt or tiger nut milk which is not only safer for use for lactose intolerant, but also fully loaded with essential vitamins and minerals needed by the body.

NAMII one of the Best Tiger nut milk Brand in Nigeria. NAMII Tiger nut milk comes in variants of flavors. So you get to pick the flavor that best soothes you.
