Easy Mango Banana Smoothie Recipe with Chia
I love smoothies. They are so versatile. They are quick. Easy to make. In short - they have everything going for them including the nutrition :) I have this habit of detoxing my body on and off. It sounds like an bombastic ritual isnt it? Well its not. Its just that our body accumulates so much toxin in normal day to day life - pollution, water, chemicals and preservative in food etc. I am not even going to all those other toxin rich products we subject our body to in the name of "health", "looks" , "lifestyle" etc! Even without trying we have so much toxins thanks to the world we live in. In order to help get rid of some of them from the body, I adopt a weekly or monthly detox plan. It just means enjoying food which help the body in getting rid of harmful poisons from our body by way of flushing them out.
Easy Mango Banana Smoothie Recipe with Chia
Among many such foods are gorging on lots of liquid based recipes - like these smoothies. I especially love this one - it has 2 of my most loved fruits - Mango and Banana. Why in god's name will I miss such a recipe ;) Its immensely simple with minimal ingredients. Its a total energy booster and I love it both in the morning and during evening time.  The seeds also help to provide a good source of Vitamin E as well as calcium. The benefits of Chia I have as a separate article which you can refer on clicking the link.
  • Prep time:
  • Serves: 2 people
Ingredients
  • 1 large ripe mango (or more if you like Mango flavor)
  • 1 large Banana
  • 1 large orange
  • about 1 tbsp of sesame seeds or chia seeds
Method
1. Peel and chop the flesh of the mango. I think I used a little more mango since I LOVE mangoes :) Slice the banana. Combine these two in a processor.
2. Squeeze out the juice of fresh orange juice. Using some store bought OJ doesn't affect the taste but fresh is always better.
3. If using sesame seeds, add it to the blender along with the fruits.Blend it all into a smooth and creamy consistency.
I did not use sesame seeds but I topped my smoothie with some Chia seeds adding to the nutrition to the smoothie. Very vibrant, fresh tasting, great for breakfast or evening. Easy Mango Banana Smoothie Recipe with Chia

I used 1 large ripe mango, 1 banana (frozen!), a squeezed orange, and 1/4 cup of vanilla almond milk. I didn't have the seeds for the top and I wanted something cold and creamy hence the frozen banana and almond milk. It was delicious. Thanks for sharing!

Can I use Mango pulp instead of Mango ?

Mango pulp comes from mango right? are u talking about canned mango puree? If yes, then u can use it, but check for sweetness since the canned varieties tend to be way sweeter
