For those who's been battling extra baggages, easy weight loss programs or herbal diet supplements always appeal like yummy chocolate cakes. You know too that herbal products have less side effects because they contain less if none at all chemicals. Supplements like nuphedragen may act as suppressants, aid in metabolism or help in other related processes of digestion. However, a lot of products out there are not regulated. Manufacturers of natural health supplements are not obligated to guarantee the safety, effectiveness or even the true content of their products! So it's still up to an individual to decide taking in such supplements...there are websites that offer reviews of products so it would be best to compare before buying.


Fruit Smoothie


Strawberries are in season again. Well, they never are out of season only at this time they are redder and sweeter. I got me a pack from the grocery last Friday and forgot about them when I came home. :D I planned to make something of a cake base with gelatine and strawberries on top but was too lazy that I ended up with this Smoothie.

Trouble was, I can't find a part of our blender when I was preparing so I had to improvise. ;) I don't have yoghurt  so i scratched it off. I put an overriped  banana in the fridge and used it as 'replacement' for ice cubes. I used a regular mixer and thank goodness the contents didn't get wild: thrown all-over the kitchen.

So voila! I therefore conclude that from strawberries and a frozen banana and some milk, you can make your own healthy smoothie in a few minutes. Remember smoothies are a great source of fiber and vitamin C and is a good antioxidant as well...



For a basic (and real) smoothie, use -
# 1/2 to 1 cup fruit
# 1 cup plain or fruit yogurt
# 1/2 cup fruit juice
# about 4 ice cubes
Combine all the ingredients in a blender. Process on high until the ice is completely crushed and the drink is smooth and creamy.
