It is so easy to prepare and you do not need a whole bunch of ingredients or equipment. Tip everything into your blender and watch the magic unfold as your trusted blender does all the hard work.

Ingredients for mango and banana smoothie bowl
Banana: I love bananas and for this particular smoothie, I have used a medium ripe one. You may use the overly ripe ones too. Just skip the maple syrup as the banana will be quite sweet. Prep the banana in advance, cut it into chunks and freeze them. Bananas are very nutritious and delicious. They are rich in fibre and antioxidants. Bananas help moderate blood sugar levels thus helping in diabetes control. They may also reduce appetite by slowing the emptying of the stomach thus good for weight loss.
Mango: Dice half of the mango and freeze them in advance. The mango I’ve used wasn’t that ripe and was still a bit tangy, which is what I like. A ripe mango will taste equally heavenly. Use freshly diced mango for the topping. Mango is a great summer fruit and is called the ‘king of fruits’ in India. With high nutritional value and great health benefits such as improved immunity, digestive health and eyesight, I would call it a superfood.
Yoghurt: I prefer using probiotic or natural yoghurt which is good for gut health. It is rich in calcium and contains nearly every nutrient that our body needs. Yoghurt is high in protein and aids appetite control thus help in weight control. It also helps strengthen our immune system. I’ve used fat-free but go ahead and use full-fat. Studies have found that contrary to what was believed about fat and weight gain, it is known to be effective in weight management.
Milk: I use a very little amount of milk in this recipe to get a thick consistency. You may adjust the quantity of milk according to the consistency you desire. If you want a dairy-free smoothie, you may replace both the yoghurt and milk with plant-based alternatives.
Chia Seeds: These are optional, but will enhance the nutritional value of your smoothie. Chia seeds are one of the most nutritious foods. It is high in fibre, omega-3 fatty acids and various micronutrients.Print Recipe
