Mangoes, a perfect treat in Summers #BlogchatterA2Z

Hello friends,

The #SuperFoodforHealthyYou today is a fruit we relish every summer, Mangoes. Last Week, during blogchatter’s #microblog on summer memories, the first thing that came in my mind was Mangoes. And I went back to my childhood days, relishing on juicy mangoes while enjoying the gupshup with friends, family and cousins. It just made me ponder how our Summers are actually incomplete without mangoes. Not that we need an excuse to eat a juicy sweet mango, but here’s a good one. The delicious, juicy and sweet mango has some anti-inflammatory benefits that help improve metabolism. On realizing the numerous health benefits of eating mangoes in summers, I am sure your love for this fruit even more.

Mango Almond Milk Smoothie
  • Make almond milk with 20-24 Almonds and 100 ml water. For making almond milk, soak Almonds overnight and blend them with a little water to make a thick smooth paste.
  • I generally add 3:4  amount of water. You may add any proportion you find appropriate, for consistency of almond milk. Add pureed mango pulp and blend well.  
  • Serve with few finely chopped mango pieces and almonds. You may add sabza or flax seeds too, it’s totally optional.

Almond milk is cooler and making smoothies with mangoes add more to its health benefits in summers. You may use normal cow’s milk too in case you don’t have almond milk or try with Coconut milk too. Totally your choice.

  1. Mango Kulfi

Who doesn’t like ice-creams or those creamy kulfis? They just taste even better with your favourite fruit. Just add the mango pulp in your favourite recipe and enjoy
