DELICIOUS FRESH STRAWBERRY COOLER


This recipe is dedicated for all my friends who are attending Health2.0 conference at San Francisco and specially for my Well sphere freinds. I hope and wish that you all are having great time.
While few of my friends are enjoying the conferance in the meantime why not all of us enjoy a delicious dessert.After a delicious meal who don’t want a feel good dessert. But our health freak soul try to tell us every time that we are on the wrong road and then we limit our desire by portioning dessert, truly speaking it need a strong spiritual soul to resist that carving. Now if I give you a recipe of delicious dessert that don’t need portion control and your mind , body and soul will bless you for this wonderful experience will not give it a genuine try? This is very fast to make and healthy. I am using yogurt, honey , strawberry and almond in this recipe. Before going to recipe have a look on the health benefit of the ingredients used in this strawberry cooler.
Yogurt-This food is low in Saturated Fat and Cholesterol. It is also a good source of Protein, Vitamin B12, Potassium and Zinc, and a very good source of Riboflavin, Calcium and Phosphorus.
Straw berry -This food is very low in Saturated Fat, Cholesterol and Sodium. It is also a good source of Folate and Potassium, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin C and Manganese. Since strawberries are rich in fiber, they help the body in absorbing nutrients. Strawberries are good for diabetics, as they help stabilize the level of blood glucose. Strawberries are said to help in regulating blood pressure and thus, diminishing the risk of heart disease. The high antioxidant levels in strawberries can help the body neutralize the destructive effects of free radicals.
Honey -Honey has a laxative effect on the digestion system of an individual and helps provide relief from constipation. Honey has been associated with treatment of persistent coughs and sore throat. Consumption of honey is believed to provide relief from diarrhea and dysentery. Honey has been found to have anti-bacterial properties, which seem to increase when it is diluted with water. Honey helps in cleansing blood and has positive effects on the regulation of blood circulation.
Almond-Contain protective nutrients like calcium and magnesium, which assist strengthening of bones. Almond contains phyotchemicals, which protect against cardiovascular diseases and cancer. It considerably reduces the risk of heart attack. Almonds also help in checking blood cholesterol levels. They also contain lots of fiber, which is good for the system. Almonds contain folic acid, which is believed to reduce levels of homocysteine, the amino acid thought to contribute to the buildup of fatty plaque in the arteries.
