Created exclusively for the German Film Awards 2019, the following smoothie composition is a real power booster. Whether served in a long drink glass or as a shot – this smoothie does not need sugar or other additives and is completely in line with the philosophy of Metabolic Balance.
The power couple ginger and turmeric stimulate the metabolism and help lose weight by aiding digestion and burning fat faster. Due to its high content of natural antioxidants, turmeric efficiently protects against wrinkles and premature skin aging.

1 chicory stick, ready to eat, cut in chunks
1 cube-sized piece of ginger, ready to eat
3 sprigs mint, ready to eat, plucked
1 tsp turmeric

Put all ingredients except the ice cubes one after one into a blender and puree to a fine smoothie. Add the ice cubes and mix until they dissolve. Distribute the Tropical Wonder smoothie into long drink glasses and serve immediately. Enjoy!

Born to be an Exotic Queen

The mango does not only taste wonderfully exotic, it also contains a lot of vitamin A and C, a lot of potassium and some copper. Their strong color tells us that mangoes are rich in carotene.

In India mangoes are used to stop bleeding, strengthen the heart and are said to have a positive effect on the brain. Their high iron content makes them valuable for anemia. Unripe mangoes have a slightly laxative effect but ripe mangoes are easy to digest.  They smell sweet and should slightly budge under pressure. Few black spots on the peel indicate that the fruit is very ripe. Mangoes harvested too early are hard, have a shriveled skin and fibrous pulp that tastes very sour and unpleasant. 

Conservation: unripe mangoes ripen at room temperature within a week, especially when kept in a bowl with apples.
Ripe fruit can be stored in the fridge for 1 to 2 weeks.

Mango stimulates the entire metabolism and is therefore an indispensable part of a healthy diet.
