Thanks to bowler Navdeep Saini, we now know the superfoods that our top players might have been bingeing on! The official handle of Indian Cricket Team posted a video on Instagram where Navdeep is making a special smoothie for his teammate Manish Pandey. Manish was a star player in the 4th T20I against New Zealand in Wellington. In the video, Navdeep can be seen sharing the recipe of his fruit smoothie that is healthy and looks rich and delicious. The smoothie consisted of two scoops of protein, one banana and one apple along with some dry fruits and water. The ingredients were mixed together and served to Pandey, who was visibly excited to share Saini's superfood. The team captioned the video, "@navdeep_saini10_official reveals his superfood as he makes fruit smoothie for @manishpandeyinsta . How did it turn out? Watch to know!" After having the smoothie, Manish gave Navdeep a hug, thanked him and said it's one of the best smoothies he has had in a long time. Look at the video below:

While, protein is necessary for our body, the combination of dry fruits with bananas has always been a great one as they provide many essential nutrients such as fibre. Both the players are one of the fittest in the team, and now that we know the secret, isn't it time to steal this stellar smoothie recipe to include in our diets as well?
