I’ve always liked smoothies, but this banana – mango one is my favorite. I remember making them for breakfast or as a snack when I would crave something sweet. I would take any fruits and nuts we had in the kitchen with some yogurt or milk and put them all in the blender. I made smoothies not only for all the nutrients and the vitamins they provide, but also because I really loved them. I can’t even believe how healthy I used to eat, it was a lifestyle for me. One of my resolutions for the New Year is to get back to my old eating habits, with lots of vegetables and fruits and less candies.
I have tried any possible combination. Mostly fruit smoothies, because I don’t like mixing fruits and vegetables together. Bananas are rich in potassium and fiber, and provide your body with many health benefits. Mangos on the other hand, are a great source of fiber, antioxidants, beta-carotene and vitamin C.
Combining these exotic fruits together you have delicious mix. You cannot imagine how good it tastes until you try it. So, if you have some bananas and mangos at home go and try it right now, and if you don’t have any, then put them on your grocery list for next time.
Just blend these two elements with some ice or coconut water. You can add whatever you want, oats, almonds for some protein, dried fruits, even some avocado for healthy fats. I added some linseed, chia seeds, almonds, coconut flakes and some dark chocolate, while it is not 2019 yet and I can still enjoy it.
Do you love smoothies too? Tell me if you tried this combination and if you liked it.
