Benefits

Not only is this creamy mango smoothie recipe delicious but it has a wealth of health benefits…

Anti-Aging– Mangos contain mangiferin, catechins, anthocyanins, quercetin, and a dozen other plant compounds that function as an antioxidant in the body (1). Antioxidants protect cells from free radical damage. Studies have linked free radical damage to aging and disease (2).

Boosted Immune System- Mangos are very high in Vitamin A, which is crucial for a healthy immune system. Not getting the right amount of Vitamin A is linked to a greater infection risk (3). Mangos provide 3/4 of the daily Vitamin C the body needs. Vitamin C helps produce white blood cells, which help fight disease (4). On top of all that, they are high in folate, vitamin K, vitamin E and several B vitamins, which all assist in a boosted immune system (5).

Heart Health- Mangos are high in magnesium and potassium. Both promote a normal pulse and lower blood pressure by helping the blood vessels relax (5). Mangos contain mangiferin, a one of a kind antioxidant that may protect cells in the heart against inflammation, oxidative stress, and apoptosis (6).

Gut Health- Manogs high in fiber and contain amylases, a complex group of digestive enzymes. These enzymes break down food molecules, allowing them to be easily absorbed and digested by the body. They are also known for breaking down complex carbs into sugars (7). In fact, a 4-week study done on adults suffering from chronic constipation found that eating 1 mango a day was more effective at relieving constipation than a dietary supplement containing the same amount of fiber (8).

    Great smoothie! What I liked best about this recipe is that it called for less yogurt than most – enough to give it some thickness and creaminess without giving it that noticeable sour tang. While I did have fresh mango on hand I decided to use frozen and I m glad I did – I do notice that using frozen fruit does make a difference in making this super cold and refreshing. While I liked the addition of the vanilla I ll either reduce the amount next time or omit it altogether – there was enough in the vanilla yogurt and I think it may have detracted a bit from the full mango flavor. Also since I used frozen mango I think I ll omit the ice cubes next time too – Hubs and I both like our smoothies thick. The slight changes I d make to this recipe in no way is a criticism of the recipe but only a matter of personal preference. I loved this nice change from the typical berry smoothie!
