Not only does this Dairy-Free Tropical Mango Smoothie Bowl taste great, but mangoes will supply you with plenty of vitamin A, fiber, folic acid, and vitamin C. I have read that mangoes can aid in digestion, promote brain health, slow signs of aging, cure acne, lower risk of cancer and boost immunity; in addition to other benefits.
I sometimes add a few other ingredients to this smoothie bowl, depending on what I happen to have on hand. I have added spinach, celery, ginger, chia seeds and a variety of berries. Regardless of what I add, it always tastes great. That is not always the case with all smoothies but seems to work with this one.
Pouring it into a bowl to serve will give you an opportunity to add your favorite toppings. On this particular day, I added sliced bananas, strawberries, blueberries, chopped flaked coconut and unsweetened shredded coconut to the top.
TRY THIS FOR SMOOTHIE SUCCESS:
I find that in order to be successful in my smoothie a day habit, I need a good routine where ingredients and tools are easily accessible. The ten minutes it takes to pull my blender out of the cabinet, and chop up fruits and veggies will come between me and my smoothie, especially during a particularly busy morning. However, with a few easy strategies, smoothie success is a breeze, even on the busiest of days.
- A GREAT BLENDER – WHILE I HAVE A LARGER BLENDER FOR CERTAIN RECIPES, IT IS THIS SMALLER BLENDER WHICH YOU WILL FIND ON MY COUNTER.
- Make my daily smoothies with this blender.
- Strong enough to whip up frozen fruit, ice, and nuts
- Easy to rinse cups (vs. harder to rinse and clean blender pitcher)
- Portable caps for the blender cups (so I can take my smoothies to-go!)
- Less clunky than a larger blender and fits perfectly on my countertop.
- FROZEN FRUIT IN PLASTIC BAGS READY TO GO:
- It is super easy to buy frozen, pre-chopped fruit from the grocery store.
- Reasonably priced and organic produce available.
- If buying fresh produce, freeze by placing the fruit on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Spread fruit in an even layer with no pieces touching. Freeze completely and then place in plastic bags. If you place fresh fruit in bags and freeze, you will have frozen clumps of fruit that are hard to separate and use.
- Have your favorite smoothies all year, not just when the fruit is in-season.
- I often transfer the contents into resealable individual clear plastic bags for easy use. It is easy to monitor when the supply is running low.
With this smoothie, all you need is a few minutes and a blender. Just add the chopped, frozen mango, banana, ice cubes, and water and blend until very smooth. Depending on your blender, it should be ready within 2-4 minutes.
I would love to know how you like it if you try it (and what toppings you used). Enjoy!
