I call this magic because it’s a great re-fuel smoothie incorporating lots of vitamin C and a small hit of carbs. It makes a lovely thick smoothie and is perfect when you want something filling but without the use of milk. I’ve had a very high carb diet over the past few days due to a marathon yesterday and today I feel the need to de-carb without starving my rather achy body. This smoothie ensures I get a good start with some natural goodness to help the immune system.
Magic Mango Smoothie
- 1/2 fresh mango (approx. 100g)
- 1/2 a banana – or one small one
- 3 dates (if you use medjool then just use one or two)
- 200ml fresh orange juice
- 2 tablespoons oats
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 cube fresh ginger (about 1-2cm)
Blend it all together.
