There are several benefits to consuming Smoothies. Depending on what’s in them, they can be healthy and nutritious, can be consumed at any time during the day, and may work as meal replacements. The thick and creamy beverage needs only a few ingredients and a blender to prepare. They can be made from fruits, vegetables, milk, yoghurt, seeds, and other options.
Smoothies are an easy, hassle-free way of consuming fruits and vegetables. These healthy ingredients in turn lead to a higher fibre intake, which prevents serious diseases like heart issues, diabetes, and more. They can also be powerhouses of nutrients, vitamins, protein and more. They give one the feeling of being full, which also reduces cravings throughout the day. They leave the drinker feeling energetic and alert.
One such healthy iteration is the Mango Coconut Smoothie. Chop up some mango and put in a blender. Add coconut milk and yoghurt, and blend until smooth. Top it off with coconut shavings. To add more to it, consider adding chia seeds and flaxseed, a banana, oats or protein powder, and the juice of any other fruit for added flavour.
Mango and coconut are both healthy ingredients. Mango is packed with nutrients which strengthen the immune system, and promote cell growth and repair. It's also rich in antioxidants that support heart health. And coconut is packed with nutrients, which may reduce risk of bacteria. Coconut’s antioxidants protect cells from damage and may aid in the prevention of chronic diseases.
