Caribbean Breakfast Mango Smoothie

This spiced up smoothie is a perfect quick pick-me-up on a summer morning. You can make it as thick or watery as you want. I always think the perfect balance adds in a cup of orange juice to make it the ideal thickness. Another way to make it smoother is to pour it over ice rather than adding it whilst blending. (I personally do it that way as it keeps the smoothie nice and cold.)

The allspice and ginger give this smoothie a bit of a different kick. Both are used commonly in Caribbean cooking, and the turmeric adds an extra health boost.  Enjoy this smoothie in your garden watching the morning sun.

 

Mango Health Benefits

Not only are mangoes a great way to start your day, with their sweet, juicy flavors, and it comes as no surprise to anyone that they are good for you. But what exactly do they do for you? Below is just a few of the good stuff that proves that mango is truly deserved of its crown; “king” of the the fruit kingdom.

  1. Beautiful Skin – gives you a glowing and radiant skin, thanks to the high vitamin A and C. This helps form collagen, which is a protein that looks after the elasticity of the skin.
  2. Improves Immunity – contains a lot of antioxidants which help with immunity, and mangoes contain about 25% of our daily dosage of vitamin A and C, which also helps fight of illnesses.
  3. Weight Loss – Mangoes are full of phytochemicals, which act as natural fat burners. They also contain fibre which helps to keep the stomach full for longer, and this helps to reduce any mindless snacking. Next time you have the craving for something sweet, replace those sugary sweets with a mango instead.
