Mango Banana Smoothie Ingredients
Bananas are a primary component of many tasty smoothies. Bananas can be used fresh or frozen.
To freeze bananas, peel them and break them into chunks. Place them into freezer bags for later use. Frozen bananas help thicken smoothies better than fresh bananas.
Bananas add plenty of potassium to your diet, as well as iron, magnesium and vitamin B6.
Mangoes are a tropical fruit. Like most tropical fruits, mangoes are sweet, juicy and full of flavor.
Packed with antioxidants, mangoes also contain healthy amounts of vitamins A, C and E. These all help make a mango a good cancer fighting fruit.
Mangoes are also a great source of fiber. At the same time, they are low in calories and carbohydrates.
If you can’t find fresh mangoes at your local supermarket, you can usually find them in the canned or freezer sections.
Milk is a great source of casein and whey proteins. It also adds vitamin D, calcium and riboflavin to your smoothie.
You can use whole milk, or substitute 2% or 1% milk to reduce the fat in your smoothie.
Other options for milk include goat’s milk, soy milk, almond milk, coconut milk and rice milk.
Ice is an important part of many smoothies. While ice doesn’t add flavor to a smoothie, it is essential to chilling and thickening it. You can add ice to nearly any smoothie without the risk of ruining it.
Adding ice to a blender can create quite a mess, so be sure to cover the container when blending ice. It is best to feed the ice through the opening in the blender top. You can also substitute crushed ice for cubes, as this is easier on a blender.
Who would have thought that frozen water could play such an important part in a smoothie?
