Healthy Drink Mango and Banana Smoothie

Mango Banana Smoothie

Make this a family favourite for breakfast and you’ll send them all off to school, college or work with a shot in the arm for their natural resistance. This is really valuable during the autumn and winter months, when we are all exposed to other people’s flu and cold-causing organisms.

It makes a great sustaining smoothie when it’s going to be a long time before the next meal, and a perfect pre-exercise recipe when you couldn’t eat a meal but do need some extra energy and stamina.

1 large mango

2 bananas

Vital statistics

You’ll get lots of resistance-building betacarotene, flavonoids, potassium, antioxidants, and vitamin C from the mango; plenty of potassium, fast- and slow-release energy, and vitamin B6 from the bananas; and more resistance-building bacteria from the yoghurt. Peeling the mango is well worth the effort.
