I make Smoothies quite a lot. There are various reasons, first it is easier when you do not have time to sit and eat, have it ready in a glass or pack it with you and you can have it on your way to office or at your desk. Secondly it is for those fussy eaters who do not eat fruits. The smoothie have the benefits of both the Greek yogurt and the fruit. Third they can be used as a mid morning snack when you are a bit hungry and its not lunch time yet. So instead of grabbing some unhealthy stuff, better gulp down this healthy Greek yogurt Smoothie. Fourth consuming Greek Yogurt or yogurt after breakfast can help your bowel process faster than people who eat yogurt after dinner. So for those who have constipation problem try to eat this after breakfast in the morning. Fifth is my own invention :-). when I drink this smoothie or eat my breakfast bowls, I feel calm and relaxed. Probably because I love yogurt. Yes I simply love yogurt.
I make various different recipes of smoothies with different fruits and vegetables and some vegetables like Spinach, Kale or Celery which I added after much thinking as the thought of this vegetables in smoothie deterred me. But to my surprise they added a lovely texture to the smoothie and definitely enhanced the taste. To start off with my smoothie recipes I am starting with a simple 2 Ingredients Mango Yogurt Smoothie. A common nickname of Mango is the king of fruits. Mango taste so good that we do not think beyond its sweet taste that they are abundant in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that assure you good health. In India mango is consumed both riped and unriped and used in pickles, as a drink, in desserts etc.
Coming back to our recipe , I do not add sugar in my smoothies as I like to flavor it with the sweetness of the fruit itself, instead of white sugar or alternative forms. So it is best to use riper fruits in your smoothies so that it taste the best. I have used the Mango today and the mango is the one available here in local shops. It does not have a very dark colour like a typical alponso mango and hence my smoothie colour is not dark but on a lighter side.
So here goes the recipe:
- 1 Cup Greek plain yogurt (or Strain normal Yogurt)
- 1/2 Cup Mango chopped roughly
- 1 Tablespoon finely chopped Mango for garnish
- Wash the mango and chop them roughly.
- In a blender simply blend the mango along with the Greek yogurt and you are done.
- Serve it as is or pack it in a bottle for your mid morning snack.
