THIS SMOOTHIE MIX

In this smoothie mix, I have plums, red grapes, watermelon, pineapple, red apple and golden pear. The tangerine is not in the mix because I already have enough water from the watermelon with which to blend the fruits. The tangerine was eaten separately.

Before I proceed, I just want to state that I am not a nutritionist, neither do I have a medical background. I just did some research in order to understand why and how I should take my fruits.

So what exactly do I have in this mix? Lets see. . .
