Winter smoothies

In the spirit of the advised breakfast metabolism booster from one of your easiest breakfast options can be a smoothie. Fruit and yoghurt filled–full of energy and a great substitute for coffee in your car mug (probably without the top)–your smoothie can be the first step to a healthier (and fitter) way of life.

A few smoothie recipes lay ahead–winter themed in that they boost immunity with vitamin c and pineapple’s Bromelain, an enzyme that clears up congestion and has cough suppressing powers! You will find these smoothies are filled with Egyptian winter available fruits. Happy slurping!
