RECIPE: BANANA MANGO SMOOTHIE BOWL
Banana Mango Smoothie Bowl
A filling, healthy and delicious breakfast is what Banana Mango Smoothie Bowl provides. Easy to make and a versatile recipe as one can replace the ingredients with what one prefers.
What is a Smoothie?
A smoothie is as the name suggests a smooth thick drink usually made from fresh fruit/ vegetables with milk, water or ice cream. Smoothie is much thicker than a milkshake. One can find flavored milkshakes that may or may not be made with fresh fruits.
What is a Smoothie Bowl?
While smoothies, though thick can be sipped, smoothies in a smoothie bowl are much thicker and one needs a spoon to enjoy it. Its usually made thick with addition of nuts, oats, cereals, flours, etc.
Here’s a rough guideline as to what you can use to make a healthy smoothie/smoothie bowl:
Liquids can be milk, soy milk, almond or cashew nut milk, yogurt.
Fruits or/both vegetables of your choice.
Good fat – peanut or other nut butters, coconut oil, avocado.
Thickener – yogurt, chia seeds, oats, banana, avocado, mango, roasted flours, cereals, etc.
Protein – milk, yogurt, cottage cheese, protein powder, nut butters
Topping – chopped fruits, nuts, seeds, shredded coconut, spices, dried fruits, cereals, crumbled cookies
Healthy start to the day
Many of us cannot begin the day without breakfast. Some don’t have breakfast at all while some just need their daily mug of coffee or tea. I cannot skip breakfast especially when I am not fasting. Hubby enjoys hot oats topped with fruits and nuts in the mornings while I cannot have that especially when its hot. So my usual breakfast is a cold smoothie. I personally love variety where my daily food is concerned. Therefore, I try and make different smoothies depending on what seasonal fruits are available. Generally, people use frozen fruits but I like to use fresh fruits whenever possible. What you will find in my freezer is chopped over ripe bananas that go into the smoothie.

Shhh Cooking Secretly Group
This group is where a monthly theme is decided and participants are paired up. They give each other two secret ingredients according to the theme which must be used in the dish we make. This month my partner is Priya who blogs at Priya’s Menu. She requested I use banana and peanut butter. Carrot and walnuts is what I asked Priya to use and she came up with a delicious Carrot Walnut Smoothie topped with caramelized walnuts.
