Minty Mango Smoothie - Breakfast Drink

Mint has a lot of health benefits in addition to bringing fresh breath and helping in digestion. It relieves cold and flu symptoms. Although consumed in small quantities, the anti-oxidant properties of Pudina helps to protect the body against cancerous cells. So, why not add some fresh mint to ripe mangoes and enjoy delicious smoothies!!!

Minty Mango Smoothy

I Used -

2 Mangoes, Ripe (Medium Sized)
About 12 Mint / Pudina Leaves (Washed)
4 tsp White Sugar
3 tsp  Brown Sugar
A drop of Vanilla Essence
2 cups water / Equivalent Ice cubes

How To -

  • Wash Mangoes, Peel the skin and Cut up the juicy flesh into pieces.
  • Add Mango pieces and Mint leaves in an electric blender and pulse about 3 times.

  • Now, add the Sugars plus a drop of Vanilla and blend well until smooth. 
  • Add 1 cup water first and blend well until everything is incorporated together. Taste the smoothie and judge whether it's sweet enough for you and your family.
  • Adjust sugar and add some ice cubes (or a cup of water) and blend well using your juicer. 

Voilà! Your healthy smoothy is ready! :)

So refreshing!

Note - The final consistency should be kinda thick, like that of a milkshake (although, we don't add any milk here).
