Akai Kick smoothie, our defences’ best friend. We are about to finish the year, and this is often a time of weakness for our bodies. The months are taking their toll (and more so with this year’s pandemic) and our defences needs a boost.
To help with this, a good diet is crucial: fruit and vegetables are two key elements. And although many think so, these two foods are not antonyms of taste and pleasure.
The Akai Kick is our most powerful smoothie in terms of nutritional value. And it’s no wonder with the ingredients in it:
Banana. We all know about the potassium content of bananas, which makes them ideal for helping the body to recover after sport. But it also has vitamin A, B2, B6 and C, as well as being very rich in calcium.
Mango. The mango, as we mentioned when we introduced you to the Mango Paradise smoothie, our most exotic flavour, is also very rich in nutrients, especially in potassium, magnesium, provitamin A and vitamin C. A fantastic cocktail to keep in shape, full defences and all with a sweet and fresh taste.
Blueberries. It’s hard to believe that these little blue berries are one of the healthiest fruits around. This is because of their high content of antioxidants, so popular today because they help fight ageing.
But blueberries have many more properties: they protect us against cardiovascular disease, diabetes and urinary infections. They also fight memory loss and even help our eyes and retina.
Acai. We have saved the least known for last. Acai is one of those foods that you have not heard of until recently and, again, they pop up in our markets and they say that they are full of vitamins and properties. Well, that’s right.
Acai, also called asai, is what is called “superfood” because of its powerful properties. This is another berry, also very rich in antioxidants and much more. It contains vitamins A, B and C, omega 3, 6 and 9 essential fatty acids, as well as a high fibre content, which helps the digestive system. Finally, it is also rich in organic vegetable protein in even greater proportion than in eggs.
But the downside is that if you don’t live in the Amazon or in the north of Brazil, you might find it a bit difficult to find in your local supermarket. But Life Smoothies brings it right to your home or business, ready to eat.
In particular, the combination of these four fruits makes Akai Kick a good friend to our immune system. All this with only 80 calories.
In fact, this smoothie contains no trans fats or cholesterol. It does have 15 grams of sugar but not artificially added, just naturally present in the fruits.
As far as vitamins are concerned, just one Akai Kick smoothie will provide us with 30% of our recommended daily vitamin C, 4% of vitamin A and 2% of the calcium and iron we need every day.
What better way to start the day than with this vitamin cocktail?
And if we haven’t been able to convince you yet, we reveal another benefit of our smoothies: their convenience.
To prepare your Akai Kick, all you have to do is open the bag containing the pieces of fruit that have already been picked, washed and cut.
They are frozen using IGF technology that freezes them in just 1 or 2 seconds. This system prevents any nutrients from being lost during the process.
All you have to do is add a liquid (juice or water) and you’re done! You now have a smoothie full of vitamins to help you recover from your workout.
We also cannot forget what makes us choose one meal over another. Why do we choose a sugary drink over a simple glass of water? For their flavour.
With Life Smoothies there is no such dilemma. You will be eating healthy and tasty at the same time. In the Akai Kick, for example, the sweetness of the banana and mango combines perfectly with the taste of the acai berry and blueberry, which gives it that striking purple colour.
Just seeing it makes you want to try it. If you have not already done so, please contact us on +971 52 392 1761 or send an email to [email protected] to see how the Akai Kick is our defences’ best friend.
