Looking for a new smoothie recipe to help keep you cool during the summer
Look no further and try my refreshingly delicious Mango and Strawberry Summer smoothie. Smoothies are a great choice of beverage, whatever the weather. They provide to us with many vitamins, minerals and are very filling.
This Mango and Strawberry Summer Smoothie is both delicious and guilt free! It is made with only 4 ingredients, you can’t go wrong. The two key ingredients in this smoothie are mango and strawberries. As it is summer time, these two fruits are in their prime and are in season. Though summer is primetime for fresh strawberries and mangos, this delicious smoothie can easily be made all year-round with the help of frozen fruit.
The combination of mangos and strawberries fuse together to create a tropical taste and heightened levels of Vitamin C and Vitamin A. Vitamin A aids in maintaining healthy vision, neurological function and healthy skin. Vitamin C helps to build our immune system and also helps in maintaining good skin. A severe deficiency vitamin C can result in a disease called scurvy which results in a breakdown of collagen causing signs of premature ageing.
This Strawberry Mango Smoothie is also banana free. I am a big fan of bananas, but I know that many people are not! Usually bananas gives a creamy texture to a smoothie, however, as we are using frozen strawberries, this will give the smoothie a wonderful, silky texture.
The liquid I used in this smoothie is coconut water. I used coconut water because it has a tropical flavour without being heavy or making the recipe high in calories. Coconut water is also full of natural electrolytes which is important for the days you need a little bit more energy.
So, whether you are grabbing a cocktail umbrella which screams summer, or an umbrella to protect you from the harsh weather, get blending with this awesome concoction.
- 2 Cup fresh mango
- 1 Cup Frozen strawberry
