Mango is without a doubt one of our favourite fruits, so we thought that making a nice cream – smoothie bowl with it would be delightful. This Mango Smoothie Bowl is full of natural and nutritious ingredients, and so healthy. It’s also super easy to make, just throw the ingredients in a blender, blend, pour into bowls, add toppings, and you’re all set!
We add 1 tbsp per person of flax seeds to our smoothie bowls, because they are very important for the body to function properly. Do you know how important is to consume flax seeds daily?
Flaxseeds have been consumed for at least 6,000 years, making them one of the world’s first cultivated superfoods. Flaxseeds contain anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids, along with antioxidant substances called lignans that help promote hormonal balance in addition to several other benefits of flaxseed. Benefits of flaxseed include helping improve digestion, skin, cardiovascular health, cholesterol and hormone balance while fighting cancer and even sugar cravings — and that’s just the beginning!

Less than a teaspoon of Turmeric per day appears to reduce the DNA mutating ability of cancer-causing substances. Watch this: http://bit.ly/1hjC69k
Very recently, we found out that raw nuts and nut butters have about 30 times less glycotoxins than roasted ones. Michael Greger says “Because of AGEs I no longer toast my nuts or buy roasted nut butters. Such a bummer, because they taste so much better. But, as Dr. McDougall likes to say, nothing tastes as good as healthy feels”. This is very important information because glycotoxins shorten lifespan! So, now we try to eat all our nuts and nut butters raw. Find more info here.
Eating nuts has been associated with plenty of health benefits — from increased cognitive function to protection from Alzheimer’s, as well as keeping your heart healthy. Now, scientists have added more benefits to that list: People who eat a lot of nuts might have a lower risk of mortality and developing chronic diseases, including respiratory disease, neurodegenerative disease, diabetes, cancer, and heart disease, according to a new study published in the International Journal of Epidemiology.
It’s been known for some time that nuts — which are rich in essential nutrients like fiber, protein, minerals, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, and antioxidants — have plenty of health benefits. One 2010 study notes that “by virtue of their unique composition, nuts are likely to beneficially impact health outcomes. Epidemiologic studies have associated nut consumption with a reduced incidence of coronary heart disease and gallstones in both genders and diabetes in women,” and “studies consistently show that nut intake has a cholesterol-lowering effect.” (extracted from www.medicaldaily.com)
Ripe bananas provide us with a natural sweet flavour without having to add any kind of sweeteners.
We use frozen bananas to get a quick creamy effect. You could use non frozen ones. The flavour will be the same, just the consistency will change slightly. A high-speed blender is needed in order to handle the blending of frozen bananas. If you do not have one, then you should use non frozen ones.
If you have never frozen bananas before, here is a quick guide on how to do so:
Wait a few days until the bananas are ripe enough (the more ripe they are, the sweeter the nicecream / smoothie bowl will become).
- Peel the bananas.
- Cut them in small pieces.
- Place them into a freezer-safe container or bag.
- Place the container in the freezer overnight.
