Smoothies are a practical way to pack healthy ingredients easily as all you have to do is to sip them with a straw!
Today we want to show you how to make a delicious mango smoothie you can enjoy as a breakfast or post-workout meal and at home or on-the-go. The best smoothies are those which provide quality carbs, fibres, healthy fats, and proteins.
In fact, this easy smoothie recipe is prepared with fresh mango chunks, greek yogurt, almond butter, chia seeds, and cacao.
You might wonder if chocolate and mango go well together, well fruit and chocolate are always a great combination, just try it for yourself! Adding cacao powder also boost your smoothie with antioxidants and helps to improve your mood.
With a single serving, you get 50% of your daily protein intake even if this smoothie is prepared without protein powder. The high protein content comes from the yogurt, almond butter, and chia seeds. We recommend you use greek yogurt instead of plain yogurt as it has double the protein and half the carbs. You can choose full-fat or low-fat varieties but avoid fat-free ones as they have a poorer nutritional profile.
If you want to make this chocolate mango smoothie vegan or dairy free, just use soy yogurt instead of greek yogurt as it is a plant-based alternative with almost the same amount of proteins per gram. You can find more allergen-free recipes on our website thanks to our Smart Search function.
