Say hello to my favorite Mango Colada smoothie bowl this season!
Mango+Banana+ Coconut milk+ Mint+ Lemon juice! It's the perfect on-the-go breakfast
and best part is it keeps you full for hours. Its almost like a sorbet or a vegan ice-cream!
Ultra creamy, naturally sweet, mangoe-y, healthy and so delicious!! Oh and did I mention that its Vegan and Gluten free too?
Mango season has just kicked off and I just can't get enough of it. Some of the most popular reader's favorite recipes are Mango chilli lemonade, Mango salad with mango-mint dressing, Mango pancakes with chili lime caramel sauce and Mango shrikhand. If you all are also obsessed with mangoes then must these recipes.
Not only are mangoes lip smackingly delicious, they are packed with tons of vitamins and minerals. Consuming seasonal mangoes prevents heart disease, lowers cholesterol, improves digestion and regulates blood pressure.
For this smoothie, I blended frozen banana and mango with coconut milk. For acidity, I added lemon juice to cut through all the natural sweetness and added a bit of mint for the freshness. Frozen fruits make the creamiest of smoothies and of all the smoothies I have shared before, this is one of the creamiest and delicious smoothie ever.
I topped the smoothie bowl with super foods like chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, shredded coconut and pomegranate for further nutrition. You can add different nuts like walnut, pecan, almonds and other super-foods like flax seeds, hemp seeds too.
