Bapico is a smoothie with an unmatched creaminess and aroma, it reminds me of summer and I find it perfect to drink on a Monday morning when you go to work and need something to lift your morale. Due to pineapple and banana, this smoothie has an unmatched sweetness, one you’ll never forget. I’ve added grated coconut to perfectly balance the taste and add an extra flavor. This smoothie is best to drink it before lunch, not breakfast.
As I am a fan of fresh fruits, I strongly recommend the fresh pineapple. It will give a greater taste, having more health benefits and vitamins. The fresh pineapple will give a smaller sweetness flavor and is a better combo for banana. But if you cannot find fresh pineapple, it’s ok to use canned one, but read carefully the sugar level.
If you want to make Bapico Smoothie and cannot find grated coconut, a fluid variation is using coconut milk. The smoothie will be more fluid, therefore, do not add water, nor the apple juice. If you’ll use coconut milk instead of grated coconut, change the apple juice with one small fresh apple to add into the blender bowl.
Like all my smoothies, this one also has a lot of health benefits. You’ll have a great intake of energy, vitamin B6 that regulates blood sugar, vitamin C, manganese, copper, thiamin, folate, potassium, magnesium, riboflavin, iron, it helps you relax, is perfect as a natural antacid, increase the ability to focus and is rich in antioxidants. Besides these benefits, the banana improves digestive health, aid weight loss, supports heart health, contains powerful antioxidants, improve insulin sensitivity, and improve kidney health. And all of these health benefits from only one glass of Bapico smoothie!
The Bapico smoothie helps a lot when it comes to weight loss. In fact, all my recipes for smoothies that have a banana as the main ingredient are specially made for weight-loss. Banana who makes you think you’re full, and drinking this smoothie or other recipes I have posted before the lunch break, you’ll eat less and have more energy than usual meals.
When it comes to sports, smoothies are the best choice for energy. However, the Bapico smoothie cannot help you if you do Yoga or other “standing-still” exercises (pilates for example). This great drink can be used to give you energy at jogging, football, baseball, or any other “running” exercises or sports. It has packed a lot of energy in so small containers.
I'm sorry you didn't like it 🙁
