How to make the very tropical smoothie:
Why is this smoothie good for you?
First and foremost flaxseeds, these are of course one of Dr Greger’s daily dozen!
Also, this smoothie is so bright and colourful – surely you know the saying ‘eat the rainbow’. Unprocessed colourful foods are usually the best ingredients you can get. We use the oranges with the pulp and not just the juice, this is an extra bonus. Mangos are high in antioxidants, so are pineapples and and and.
