Choosing seasonal, locally produced fruit is always a good idea! It means that it's usually freshly picked and hasn't been sitting in a storage fridge for months, there's less carbon footprint because of transportation and usually costs less.
We're smack in the middle of mango season at the moment and I'm going mad with all the recipes I've been trying, from breakfast bowls to spicy chicken salads, but this mango and coconut smoothie is my favourite. The base is usually the same and then I play around with different superfoods and nut butters. So, here you go!
1 cup mango
1/2 cup coconut milk
2tbsp live, double cream yoghurt
1 tbsp baobab powder
1 tbsp almond butter
1 tbsp Maca powder
1 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 cup fresh pineapple
Place all the ingredients and blend to desired consistency.
If you have any other variations please let me know, I'd love to give it a try!
