What Is In The Cucumber Pineapple Melon Smoothie From Ninja Blender?
The Ninja Blender Cucumber Pineapple Melon smoothie ingredients are baby spinach, cucumber, honeydew melon, lime, pineapple, water, and ice.
Baby Spinach – Baby spinach is an early harvest leafy green that is slightly sweeter than regular spinach. It is nutrient-dense, containing significant vitamin A, vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, folate, iron, and zinc. Baby spinach is known to promote eye health, lower blood sugar levels, help prevent anemia, and reduce the risk of breast cancer and ovarian cancer.
Cucumbers – Cucumbers, while commonly mistaken for vegetables, are actually a highly nutritious fruit. They are rich in the antioxidants flavonoids and tannins that have been found to prevent cell damage by blocking harmful free radicals. Cucumbers also help reduce blood sugar and have been shown to prevent some diabetes-related complications.
Honeydew Melon – Honeydew melon is a sweet, fleshy relative of the cantaloupe that is very nutritious and offers several health benefits. It contains significant vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin K, and potassium, as well as the powerful antioxidants beta-carotene, phytoene, quercetin and caffeic acid. Honeydew melon can help reduce blood pressure, lower blood sugar, and promote healthy skin.
Limes – Limes are a sour citrus fruit that are best known for their immunity boosting nutrients. They are loaded with vitamin C and contain other important minerals such as riboflavin and niacin. Limes are also known to reduce the risk of heart disease, prevent kidney stones, and aid in the absorption of iron.
Pineapples – Pineapples are popular tangy tropical fruit that, surprising to most, originated in South America, not Hawaii. They are absolutely loaded with antioxidants and nutrients, including a ridiculously high amount of vitamin C (1 serving = 131% of the recommended daily intake), manganese, vitamin B6, and thiamin. Pineapples also contain a significant amount of the digestive enzymes bromelain that can help fight pancreatic cancer.
