Smoothies are quick and easy to make. They’re satisfying , not too filling, and decadent enough to skip dessert.
The combinations and ingredients are endless. It’s up to you to decide what goes in the blender. Use your imagination and have fun, listen to your body, what are you craving? Oranges, bananas, kale? Vitamin C, potassium, beta carotene?
You get the picture.
Tonight I wanted mangoes! What’s so special about mangoes you ask, well according to The National Mango Board:
Mangos are high in vitamin C and A
Vitamin C promotes healthy immune function and collagen formation. Vitamin A is important for vision and bone growth.
Mangos are high in dietary fiber.
Mangos contain over twenty different vitamins and minerals.
I suppose my body is asking for some anti-oxidant properties, no?
here’s what I had for dinner.
