Morning Mango Bowl

Skip the milk and cereal routine and make the most of your morning by enjoying heaping helpings of fruit first thing. Mango is a stone fruit that is particularly high in vitamin C (roughly 65% of your daily recommended intake), which is known to boost the immune system, and vitamin A, which is good for skin and hair. But, the hearty texture and bright, citrusy taste are what make it a star when constructing the perfect breakfast bowl. Below are our recommendations for add-ons, but you can also incorporate acai, blueberries, strawberries, almonds and more.

 

Mango Smoothie Bowl

Yield: 2 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups frozen mangoes
  • 1 frozen banana
  • ½ cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 tsp. honey
  • ¼ cup granola (optional)
  • ¼ cup fresh raspberries (optional)

Preparation

  1. Allow the frozen fruit to thaw for about 5 minutes.
  2. Then add the mangoes, banana, orange juice and honey to a high-speed blender; mix until smooth using a spatula to scrape down the sides at various intervals. If the blender is having a hard time mixing, add 1 tablespoon of water at a time.
  3. Then distribute the thick smoothie mixture between two bowls and top with granola and raspberries, if desired. Other good topping choices include cranberries, dried coconut shavings or chocolate bits. Serve cold.
