HOW TO MAKE A SMOOTHIE MANGO?
If you want to make your own frozen fruit just cut some mango ahead of time and store it in the freezer. If you don't have time to make your own, you can buy frozen mango at any grocery store. To make this creamy drink, mix its ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Feel free to kick back and relax once this refreshing mango smoothie has been served.
The secret ingredient in this healthy mango smoothie is mango nectar. You can find it in a can in the juice aisle at the store or in the refrigerated section in a cardboard box. It has a delicious flavor that makes it the perfect ingredient for your smoothie.
Some other juices to use if mango nectar is not available are
- Apple juice
- Orange juice
- Pineapple juice
Although this smoothie is healthy enough on its own, there are other ways that it can increase the health factor. One way is to use a juice that is 100% juice with no added sugars. Another way is to make sure that your mango pieces don't contain added sugar.

WHAT ARE THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF MANGO?
Mango is a fairly healthy fruit. Research shows that the antioxidant compounds found in mango help protect against a long list of cancers. Other than that, it helps with eye health, gut health, lowers cholesterol and more. It looks like a fruit everyone should have on hand!
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE GREEK YOGURT AND THE REGULAR YOGURT?
There is not such a big difference as it seems. However, Greek yogurt is strained more times than regular yogurt, which eliminates more liquid. This makes it thicker, but it also allows you to contain more protein than regular yogurt.
This mango smoothie will make you feel like you are on a tropical vacation. It's the best way to cool off and get some nutrients on a hot day!
