Tropical Banana-Mango Smoothie

If you’re in the mood for a healthy and refreshing drink, why not try making a delicious tropical banana-mango smoothie?

A fruit smoothie is a great way to sneak lots of fruits into your breakfast, especially if you don’t have time to sit down and enjoy a meal at home.

This recipe includes mangoes, also called the “the king of fruits.” Mangoes are sweet tropical fruits with many health benefits.

Do take note that mangoes are high in sugar and that a cup contains about 25 g of carb and 100 calories.

Studies have found that mangoes can help prevent cancer because they’re rich in various types of polyphenols. These amazing plant compounds have antioxidant activity that protects your cells from DNA damage that’s often linked to degenerative diseases like cancer and Type 2 diabetes.

Mangoes also keep your skin and hair healthy. The fruit contains vitamin A that is essential for the proper development and maintenance of several types of epithelial tissues, like your hair, skin and sebaceous glands.

Sebaceous glands are attached to your hair follicles and they ensure that your hair stays healthy and moisturized.

A one-cup serving of mango contains at least 75% of the daily minimum vitamin C intake. The vitamin is needed to produce collagen. This type of tissue makes your skin elastic. It also helps prevent sagging and the appearance of wrinkles.
