Vegan Kesar Pista Smoothie Recipe
Kesar: Saffron adds a vibrant and fun colour to any dish but is also great to detoxify the body. It helps repair damaged cells and tissues and also promotes new tissue growth.
Saffron also increases vitality and the presence of micro nutrients and vitamins in it has more than one specific benefits. Note though, do not over use saffron as too much in this case can be too bad.
The kesar pista is something that we have been using in our dishes for quite along time. Kesar and Pistachio together makes a great combination of flavour and this combination has been used in India since the traditional times. The kesar pista flavour is now a part of India’s great heritage and the most popular sweet dish flavour in India.
So why not use it in a smoothie? With the beautiful smell of kesar, flavouring the entire smoothie and the healthy pistachio it tastes almost heavenly. The smoothie is refreshing and very healthy.
The smell of kesar alone has been associated with anti-depressive properties. It helps release stress and boosts the happy hormones in your body. It also reduces PMS symptoms. Apart from that, kesar is loaded with anti- oxidants which can completely detoxify your body. Kesar also acts as an aphrodisiac and can boost your libido. It also decreases your appetite and aids in weight loss. The pistachio we use, is again, a dry fruit with several health benefits. Apart from adding the chewiness of dry fruit in your smoothie, pistachio adds healthiness in it. It helps lower your blood sugar levels by improving the insulin response in your body, and promotes the healthy bacteria in your gut. Kesar pista smoothie is the perfect combination of taste and healthiness.
