This banana and mango protein smoothie is packed with vitamins, antioxidants and - obviously - protein. As well as being easy to make, this fruit combo is undeniably tasty and comes with some impressive health benefits. If we were to list them all, we'd be here all day, so we've picked a few of the best:
Bananas are an amazing source of potassium, which just so happen to be one of the most vital electrolytes in the body, helping to regulate heart function and lower blood pressure. Bananas are probably the most filling fruit going, thanks to their high pectic (a type of solube fibre) content. That means a morning banana boost will help you avoid the dreaded mid-morning munchies!
Mango is packed with polyphenols, which function as antioxidants which can decrease the risk of cancer, boost skin health and reduce the signs of ageing. Mango is a great immunity-booster, with one cup providing 10% of your vitamin A (which fights off and prevents infections) requirements.
So, let's make a delicious and nutritious banana & mango protein shake!
