Purple Smoothie : cabbage and antioxydant Blueberries
You know I am a prediabetic and I am always on the look for ingredients that help regulate my blood sugar level. While banana is high in fructose, blueberries contains only 10g of natural sugar per 100g. It makes a great low sugar fruit to add sweetness in this smoothie. Plus, blueberries are the food with the highest level of antioxidants which helps protect our cells from damage. A bristish study even shown that eating blueberries – as apples and grapes – reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes! Yeah, all good for me. So here is my smoothie – sorry the banana are hiding under the blueberries and cabbage 🙂 Not easy to shoot picture with a little one around.
Red cabbage a vitamin C booster
So you probably wonder why I added red cabbage in my smoothie ? Well, red cabbage is a great breakfast vegetable to boost your morning vitamins C! Yes, it contains 95% of vitamins C – about 57 mg per 100 g which is more than orange – contains only 89% of vitamins C. Amazing right? And I simply love the idea of finally eating a high fiber vegetable that I absolutely hate cooked. Enjoy the simple purple smoothie recipe. And if you love dairy free smoothie, I have got a range of delicious almond milk smoothie to try on the blog : pear smoothie, watermelon strawberry smoothie or tropical smoothie with mango and pineapple
