I still remember the unmistakable flavor of the mango I ate during my trip to Bali. We were in this hotel in the middle of the rice fields of Ubud, in an area where you could only get there on foot or at maximum by scooter. The girl who ran the hotel brought us fresh mango every morning for breakfast, a divine flavor. To relive those flavors I propose the mango smoothie.
This recipe is an immediate charge of energy and vitality 🙂
Mango offers an excellent dose of vitamins and minerals, including potassium, calcium and magnesium. For this reason it can be considered a real natural anti fatigue supplement. Mango helps digestion and can also help in weight loss. Research has focused mainly on the ability of mango peel to burn fat.
The best way to eat mango is undoubtedly as it is, but it can easily be combined with both sweet and savory processes. In India it is used, for example, as a condiment for chicken and shellfish dishes.
My mango shake can almost be mistaken for the famous mango Lassi, a traditional Indian yogurt drink. The difference is that the mango Lassi is usually prepared with spices such as cardamom and cumin, which tend to dampen the sweetness and make the drink suitable to accompany meals.
I prepared my recipe one morning to drink it for breakfast and it does not contain spices. If you want to revisit it and add some spices let me know how it is 🙂
