Mango Smoothie Recipe
Click here to go straight to our recipes A mango smoothie recipe is one of my favourites. I have a sweet tooth and just love the taste of mangos, although sometimes I wish they came a little easier to peel and they didn't have stones inside them. Why couldn't they be more like a banana which comes in such a neat package!
The answer is yes as raw fruit and vegetables are loaded with essential nutrients and enzymes which the body can readily use to boost our immune system and our energy levels quickly and naturally. By using a blender with our smoothies we retain the fibre which is essential in detoxing our bodies of toxins. There are no rules when it comes to making a mango smoothie recipe although some fruits will match better than others. It's all a matter of taste and you should not be frightened to experiment. Mangos are rich in vitamins A and C and at about 59 calories per 100g can be eaten without guilt. They are also rich in immunity boosting beta-carotene needed for healthy eyes and healthy skin. They also have a little iron in them. Like all fruit, mangos are rich in antioxidants which help prevent cell damage and decay caused by free radicals. When you are buying mangos, buy ones which have not got black spots on them as this can indicate that the fruit is over ripe and will not taste its best. If you need to ripen your mangos, leave them in a warm place or put them into a brown bag with a banana. You can buy tinned mangos but remember they are usually full of syrup; however if you are not counting calories they are a fab sweet addition to your mango smoothie recipe. Cutting a mango
1. Place the mango on a chopping board with its narrow side down
2. Cut off a thick strip lengthwise avoiding the stone in the middle
3. Score the flesh of the mango in squares
4. Turn the mango flesh inside out and with a little imagination it should resemble a hedgehog.
5. These squares can easily be cut off the flesh to be eaten or used in your mango smoothie recipe Drink your smoothies straight away. If you leave them to sit for an hour or two, even in the refrigerator, the layers will separate and the fruit may start to oxidize. Although it will still taste yummy, it will not look appetizing.
