Strawberry pomegranate smoothie

Prep time : 5 Mins | Serves 2 -3
 
 
Pink smoothie


Strawberry pomegranate smoothie is very simple yet very delicious n healthy drink for breakfast. It is very suitable to call Strawberry as the "Queen of fruits". I have a passion for this heart shaped juicy delight ever since my childhood.It is not only rich in flavor but it is also a power packed fruit.It is very rich in minerals and vitamins as compared to apple,banana and orange. Letz now have a quick glance over its benefits before going through the mouth watering recipe. It is a high fiber, low calorie fruit. It is rich in vitamin C which helps in immunity.Its red coloring agent (anthocyanin) helps burn stored fat .Strawberry contains potassium,vitamin K and magnesium and thus promotes bone health too. It helps in avoiding heart diseases too. And there is no need for me to say that it also prevents wrinkling of skin (as u already know). Hope the info was useful , if at all found boring please do forgive me :)
