Mango season would be totally deprived of it glory if you don't try this delicious mango berry smoothie. It is packed with nutrients and fresh seasonal fruits. You should definitely try this before the mangoes vanish from the market.

Mangoes are a versatile and an interesting fruit. You can add them in slushies, cakes, ice-creams, salads, smoothiesdipspickles, or sweet-dishes. Though, I don't love mango so much but I love adding them in smoothies.

I've also added 1/2 cup of fresh blueberries. They are a popular summer treat which gives a fresh and crisp flavor to the smoothie. Blueberries are packed with various health benefits, and can make the smoothie more wholesome and nutritious, and, it's texture is extremely surprising.

After a bit of trial and error, I used some of the most healthful smoothie ingredients like -

Fruits - Mango, Blueberries
Thickener - Greek yogurt, Ice cubes (optional)
Liquid base - Almond milk, Water (optional)
Flavoring - Vanilla extract, Honey
Protein and Fats - Nuts and seeds for toppings

Toss the ingredients in, blend and you are all set! It’s super easy, super light, super refreshing and a very healthy smoothie recipe.

Notes


1. If you want to keep your smoothie vegan, you can use coconut, hemp, soy or almond milk else you can also use the nonfat milk.

2. If you prefer a thicker consistency, use less liquid. If you prefer a thinner consistency, add a little more liquid.

3. You can also add frozen fruits or add crushed ice to make your smoothie slightly slushy.
