Healthy Mango Smoothie

Updated: Jul 1



Summer days call for refreshing and healthy smoothies, and I can’t think of a better fruit to use than mango! If you like creamy smoothies, you’ll love this mango banana smoothie.


This tropical mango smoothie is sweet, creamy, and packed with fiber, vitamins, antioxidants, and natural probiotics. Making it excellent for your digestive system!



I love to use yogurt in smoothies to add extra creaminess and a touch of a tangy taste. This is particularly useful for anyone who doesn’t like bananas, which are usually used to add creaminess, or anyone looking to improve their digestive health.



This mango smoothie with yogurt works perfectly with frozen mango too. Use plain or vanilla yogurt to complement the mango flavor! Top it with seeds, shredded coconut, and/or granola.

Nutrition:


*Mango improves digestive health and is considered one of the best brain foods. It’s packed with vitamin B6, which is essential for maintaining brain function. In fact, some research suggests that a deficiency in this key vitamin could contribute to impaired cognitive function and neurological decline. Mango also contains the antioxidant zeaxanthin, which filters out harmful blue light rays, playing a protective role in eye health as well as possibly preventing macular degeneration symptoms.


*Bananas are rich in fiber, antioxidants, and several nutrients. They are rich in fiber and resistant starch, which may feed your friendly gut bacteria and safeguard against colon cancer. Bananas are also a dietary source of potassium and magnesium - two nutrients that are essential for heart health.
