4 Antioxidant Feijoa Smoothie Recipes You Need to Try - Blog
Got too many feijoas from the neighbours? It’s nearing the end of the season – don’t let them go to waste! Tip: freeze feijoas when you have too many, so you don’t feel obliged to eat them all at once and can continue to enjoy them after the season ends. You can freeze them whole or scoop them out and freeze them in ice cube trays, ready to use in desserts and salads. Loaded with vitamin C and other antioxidants, feijoas also make deliciously refreshing smoothies. Feijoas are low in calories and high in soluble dietary fibre, which helps clean out your digestive system. They are also high in vitamin C, with 100g of feijoa providing about half your recommended daily intake, and high in potassium. These four recipes also add a few other tasty health boosters. You don’t need to follow these recipes to the letter – feel free to try your own variations. All the following recipes provide two servings. Simply combine all ingredients in a blender till smooth. Add some crushed ice to the mix if you prefer it chilled.
