Today’s my 4th day of the raw diet and it’s been going pretty strong so far! I am glad to admit that I haven’t felt the need to cheat as yet! 😉 I feel awesome and pleasantly surprised at how consuming all natural raw food has worked out for me. I am aiming to at least finish off the week with this diet.
Mind you, I don’t believe that this can be considered a fad diet. It certainly is not and I wouldn’t want anyone misunderstanding it for a fad diet. The benefits of eating raw fruits and vegetables cannot be underestimated & I think it’s pretty commendable if one can follow such a diet as a lifestyle. Unfortunately, we’ve been so inured with drinking & eating food in superfluous ways since so many thousands of years, that it seems nearly impossible to get accustomed to a rudimentary diet such as this.
But as I believe it’s never too late to try and its never to late to learn something new, I have been continuously posting all the healthy smoothies that i’ve made and had so far. Today’s smoothie happens to be ohhh soooo good for the skin! Hope you guys like it! 🙂

The Pink Blossom looks so yummy! I was wondering, as I have not seen this in the stores before, where I can get the Aloe Vera plant for this recipe? I am also wondering what Amla and Coconut Malai is. I have not heard of them either. What flavor, when all mixed together is most predominant when drinking this smoothie?
Thank you for your comment. Glad you liked it as these smoothies are super healthy and this one turned out tasty as well. With regards to your query, I bought the aloe vera plant from a local vendor I found who deals in a few exotic plants as well as bonzai’s etc. so not too sure where you would find one depending upon where you’re located. If not, you could probably try without it or just plain aloe vera juice if available. Also, I’m sorry as I’m based in India, these ingredients are pretty easily available here. Amla is basically called Indian gooseberry or Emblic. And coconut malai is basically the white cream or “meat” that you can usually remove out of a coconut. Hope it makes sense now 🙂
