Every morning, I go for a run, and believe me when I say that the want to create a smoothie afterward is strong. To tell you the truth, I never make it past the impulse. However, I made it today, and it was well worth the effort. So I made a smoothie with mango, banana, and fig. It’s not only delicious, but it’s also healthy, and it’ll help you get through your workout. Everyone at home has grown tired of eating mangoes, so it’s time for me to experiment with new mango recipes. I also add bananas to my smoothie because I despise eating them. Some of you will completely understand why I dislike bananas, as you may dislike them as well. Bananas are a nutrient-dense item that should be included in everyone’s diet. What could be better than putting that damn banana in your smoothie and having it go down smoothly? You are welcome to compliment me!
Today I am offering a recipe for a very healthy and nutritious drink that combines all of my favourite ingredients in one glass. It contains mangoes, bananas, and figs, as the name suggests. There will be some little fig fragments in the smoothie as you drink it, giving it a crunchy texture.
● Two ripe Alphonso mangoes of medium size
● Two bananas, medium size (frozens better makes it more creamy).
● 8-10 figs (fresh) (dried can be used too).
● Unsweetened almond milk, unsweetened cashew milk, semi-skimmed milk, or ordinary milk, half cup
● Cubes of ice (optional).
● Mangoes and bananas should both be peeled.
● Chop the mangoes and bananas finely.
● Combine the chopped fruits and dried figs in a mixing bowl.
● Add the milk now.
● Blend all the chopped fruits, milk, and ice in a blender until smooth.
● Fill tall glasses with it or small gym water bottles with it.
● Chill the dish before serving.
● Also, have fun.
● The figs add a crisp richness to the smoothie, while the mangos add sweetness. Figs are high in vitamin A, B1, and B2, as well as potassium and antioxidants.
● Banana shakes are frequently used to provide calories and nutrition to a busy lifestyle or to support a health objective such as weight loss or gain. They’re also popular for helping individuals recover from hangovers.
● Figs are high in calcium and potassium. These minerals can work synergistically to increase bone density, which can help prevent osteoporosis. A potassium-rich diet, in particular, has been shown in studies to increase bone health and minimise bone turnover.
● Bananas are high in complex carbohydrates, which aid to boost muscle glycogen stores, as well as potassium, which helps to avoid muscle cramps. They also deliver a consistent supply of glucose, making them ideal for refuelling throughout exercise.
● Bananas are high in fibre. This nutrient makes you feel fuller for longer, prevents you from overeating, and helps you achieve your weight loss objectives.
I hope you’ll give this recipe a shot after your morning run tomorrow.
