fresh juice from 1 lemon
1 inch (2.5 cm) of fresh ginger (chopped)
3 dried figs
1 cup of water (filltered)
Ok, I know, there are carbs. I know, I know. But belive me, that this taste so good, that it can be your "treat". And to be honnest with you - isn't this healthier treat than french fries?
Figs are amazing.
- Dried figs are a rich source (> 20% of the Daily Value, DV) of dietary fiber and the essential mineral, manganese, while vitamin K and numerous other minerals are in moderate content.
- Figs contain diverse phytochemicals, including polyphenols such as gallic acid, chlorogenic acid, syringic acid, (+)-catechin, (−)-epicatechin and rutin.
You will get lots of Vitamin C from this smoothie too - because of kiwifruit and lemon. And ginger - Ginger is naturally an antibacterial agent, and according to the American Cancer Society it has been promoted as a cancer treatment to keep tumors from developing. 3.5 oz (100g) contains 5 mg vitamin C (about 5% of daily value).
It was so good, that I even cannot create a photo - this smoothie was gone so fast :-)))
What's your favorite treat?
