5. Avocado and cocoa
This shake will give you a lot of energy and will keep you healthy because cocoa is rich in flavonoids, which protects your cells. The combination of avocado and cocoa results in a creamy and delicious mixture.
Avocado is a great source of vitamin E, which is a powerful antioxidant that strengthens the immune system according to a study by the Higher Institute of Medical Sciences of Havana. It also provides protein and essential fatty acids.
6. Pineapple and pear
Pineapple is a powerful antioxidant, according to studies like this one published in the International Journal of Food. Pears are delicious, sweet, refreshing, and rich in fiber.
Pears are rich in fructose and glucose, so they provide a natural energy boost. Unlike many other fruits; however, pears have a low glycemic index. This low glycemic index results in slower absorption of carbohydrates into the bloodstream. Because this transition is slow, there is no rapid spike or drop in blood sugar. With a stable blood sugar level, there is less craving for more food.
7. Coconut and strawberries
Coconuts are rich in healthy fats. Meanwhile, strawberries are a powerful antioxidant, according to a study by the Mexican Center for Research, Food and Development. The two combine perfectly to create a delicious and healing smoothie.
We recommend sweetening it with a little stevia or honey to balance the acidity. If you don't want to add carbohydrates, stevia is the best option.
