Like most people, I love fruit that is in season – it tastes better, is fresher, cheaper and is more environmentally friendly!
Unfortunately mangos do not thrive in Winter so to get my fix this time of the year I have to buy them frozen… Mangos besides being incredibly delicious have a high content of vitamins (A, C & B6) and also contains magnesium and potassium! These juicy suckers are also known for improving digestion, eye health, lowering cholesterol, alkalising the body, and even assisting in the prevention of cancer.
I eat mangos daily when in season so was very happy to have come across a frozen alternative. With that being said, I am now able to make my families favourite Mango & Chia Smoothy which I have shared with you below. As per my usual style this is a quick and easy recipe that is straight up yummy!
– 1 peeled, pitted and sliced fresh mango
– 1 peeled and sliced banana
– 3 spoons of greek yogurt
– 2 spoons of chia seeds
– almond milk
Blend on a high speed until smooth. Voila!
