Creamy Vegan Mango Avocado Smoothie tastes so good that you won’t believe it. It’s extremely nutritious, delicious and a great way to kick-start your day.
Let me tell you that I am a huge fan of fruit smoothies and this is my breakfast almost everyday. I enjoy going to the grocery store every Sunday and pick up different fruits each time. I then combine them to make my wholesome smoothies. I had been toying with the idea to use avocado in my smoothie for a long time now and it finally materialized.
I had picked up some ripe avocado and mangoes on my last trip to the grocery store. This time I had made up my mind to prepare a tropical smoothie using these exotic fruits. Avocado is one wonder fruit. I had used it to make Avocado Pesto Barilla Pasta and loved it because it gave the required smooth and creamy texture to the dish. They are also a great source of healthy fats and an average avocado contains about 4 grams of protein. Avocados are also a good source of dietary fiber and high in vitamins.
The other core ingredient in this smoothie is mango. Mangoes are no nutritional slouch. They are a good source of dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and also have anti-inflammatory properties. Therefore, these two together make one helluva combination. In a blender, add flaxseed milk, ice cubes, avocado, mango, chia seeds and red pepper jam. Blend until smooth.
Vegan Mango Avocado Smoothie is now ready. KR absolutely loved this smoothie and insisted on having the same drink for the whole week. I happily obliged knowing very well that it is always a healthier choice than any aerated drinks which he craves for normally. This smoothie has become a family favorite and I am foreseeing this drink to be a regular in my kitchen.
To give your smoothies a cool taste, use frozen fruits. The frozen fruit just adds that cold element to make an ice-cold drink and refreshes you completely. Whipping up a smoothie for breakfast will further help you rev up your metabolism first thing in the morning. Hence make the smart choice, and go make your own fruit smoothie!
