Strawberry and Mango Smoothie

Eating foods that are high in water content and fiber like strawberries, grapes and watermelon can help to keep you hydrated and your bowel movements regular. Strawberries also make a great source of vitamins C and K as well as fiber, folic acid, manganese and potassium. They contain significant amounts of phytonutrients and flavanoids which give strawberries the vibrant bright red color. The fiber and fructose content may also help regulate your blood sugar levels by slowing digestion.

Mangoes are rich in pre-biotic dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals, and poly-phenolic flavonoid antioxidant compounds. Which combined with omega-3-rich chia seeds makes a pretty good smoothie I’d say. Adding some plant yogurt makes the texture creamier and also many vegan yogurts contain added vitamins D and B12 which many plant based diets easily lack.

This heavenly sweet and creamy Strawberry and Mango smoothie is one of my favorite smoothies, you still wonder why? 😉

Here are the instructions, hope you love it!
