Exactly in this period of the year we should be very careful for our immune system and protect against colds and viruses. Because of that reason, we offer several frappe recipes that are rich in vitamins crucial for maintaining good health and strengthen the immune system.
We start with a banana because it is available all year round. Banana be prepared with a blender and can be combined with milk and honey (maybe vanilla, nutmeg, etc.). It is rich in iron, which stimulates the production of hemoglobin in the blood, and it is good for people who are anemic. This tropical fruit contains large amounts of potassium, which regulates blood pressure and protects against stroke. Since it is rich in fiber, it improves the bowel functioning. Bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin that makes us feel relaxed, improves our mood and makes us happier.
2. Frozen berries – strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries
