Green Smoothies With Asian Fruit
If you are looking for green smoothies that will provide your taste buds with a rush of unique and exotic flavors, then I have just the recipe you are looking for. This is one of the more exotic green smoothies that you will find on this site. Combining exotic Asian fruits and leafy green vegetables, this green smoothie offer bountiful nutrition and a slightly tropical flavor.
Passion fruit is very tart in its natural taste, but the natural sweetness of the lychees assists in offsetting the taste. The addition of the coconut water helps to bring the tropical flavors together nicely, and because the flavor of the bok choy is mild, it is easily disguised by the fruit.
Lychee is an excellent source of Vitamin C and a number of different antioxidants. Passion fruit is low calorie fruit, and it is a great source of dietary fiber. 100 grams of passion fruit will contain 37% of the daily recommended value of fiber. Passion fruit is also another great source of Vitamin C, as well as Vitamin A. It is also rich in potassium, and there are small amounts of iron, copper, and magnesium in passion fruit.
To make these green smoothies, here are the ingredients that you’ll need to have:
- 10 lychee, peeled and seed removed
- 3 passion fruit, inner fruit only
- 1 medium banana, peeled
- 1 head baby bok choy
- 4 ounces of coconut water
Each of these ingredients should be added to your blender one at a time and blended until they have a creamy consistency. This should take about 30 seconds on a high speed setting. It is important for you to remember to remove the peels of the lychee before adding them to your blender.
