banana apple tomatoes smoothieBy Dr Joe

What do you do on a Monday afternoon when you are off-duty and you’ve got time to kill? Watch episodes of ‘The Real Housewives of New York’? Maybe.

But the bitchfest does get to you and the conversation is far from intellectually stimulating.

So with your mind bored stiff and the hunger pangs begin to call, what do you do next? Pick up a fictional book to while away time?

Hmmm, Nope.

I would rustle up a quick Banana Apple Cherry Tomatoes Smoothie. That’s what I would do and you should too.

The banana apple cherry tomoato smoothie is easy to make and you can kick-start a dull day having this smoothie. The only condition necessary for this smoothie is that you have to like the taste of cherry tomatoes. Because the banana apple cherry tomatoes smoothie has a distinctly cherry tomato flavour.

You can’t miss it. Some will say, the cherry tomato taste is over-powering.

But tomatoes are good for you. Tomatoes are a natural source of Vitamin C. The Vitamin C from the tomatoes promotes healthy teeth, gums, bones, blood vessels and even your skin. Vitamin C from the tomatoes also facilitates absorption of Iron when you eat foods with good iron supply like spinach.

Testing myself 1 hour after drinking Banana Apple Cherry Toamatoes smoothie, I got a blood sugar reading of 4.2 mmol/l (75.6 mg/dl). Quite healthy range of blood glucose. The flaxseeds helps drive the blood glucose into your body cells for energy use preventing any blood sugar spikes.
