Sometimes making something that the whole family can enjoy gives you an amazing feeling. No daddy menu, mommy menu and baby menu because everyone is loving and enjoying the same exact food. Saves sometime for me to write more blogs!
Today’s menu is making me smile really big because it is easy, simple, delicious, provides plenty of nutrients and of course everyone can enjoy it together. All you need is two ingredients strawberries and key limes. Let’s take a look at the benefits of each ingredient first.
Strawberries are high in vitamin C, calcium, potassium, folic acid and fiber. Strawberries has high antioxidants anthocyanins, which help you produce an adiponectin hormone, fat- burning hormone, in your body. Strawberries also help to prevent the body from turning starch into sugar too. Research has shown the links between consuming vitamin C during stress can help reduce blood pressure back to normal level, and can also help to prevent the development of hypertension — especially in children.
If you consider trying this menu, try choosing organic strawberries over the normal ones, if not you probably have a high chance of consume pesticides.
Key limes provide an excellent source of Vitamin C and potassium, are cholesterol free, fat free, sodium free and low in calories. Key limes are also beneficial for weight loss and help boost your metabolism too.
Now let’s talk about how to make it.
We already knew what ingredients we need, lets see about the equipment. You do not need a juicer but you do need a blender, and a knife.
Follow my directions below;
First, wash your strawberries and key limes, then cut the strawberry leaves off and throw them away, next step simply put all your strawberries into the blender. Then cut your key limes in half and squeeze them into the blender. Start blending until it turns smooth. Voila! It’s time to enjoy!
If you want to speed up your metabolism even more, adding a pinch of cinnamon and a pinch of cayenne pepper will do the work. My husband and I love drinking it first thing in the morning and we make this menu as a snack for our little angel.
