Directions

One thing exotic fruits have in common is that they are loaded with powerful antioxidants, which make them the perfect addition to any healthy weight-loss and anti-aging diet. Mango's carotenoids and vitamin C improve the health of soft tissues and promotes proper skin hydration levels. Dragonfruit, or pitahaya, is a great source of fiber, aids peristalsis, and helps to regulate blood pressure, diabetes, and obesity. Melon's flavonoids have anti-inflammatory and mildly diuretic properties. Kiwi's high content of dietary fiber and vitamin C helps the immune system's defenses, and it also has diuretic qualities. Finally, carambola works as a powerful antioxidant. Enjoy this healthy combo in one cup!

  1. Combine the Greek yogurt with chia or flax. Place it at the bottom of the cup.
  2. Drop in some honey and add the granola or muesli.
  3. On top of everything, add the mix of exotic fruits.
  4. Optional: Decorate the rim of the glass with a slice or two of carambola.
