It is when I recover the fashion of smoothie bowls to take advantage of the seasonal fruit. But I have realized that it is not necessary to use frozen ingredients to achieve a creamy and satiating texture; A smoothie bowl like this mango and banana with red fruits and chia is perfect for the whole year.
Now that it is easy to find national mango almost all year round, it is my favorite base fruit to prepare smoothies and smoothies; We can also use the frozen format to always have on hand. It is easily crushed, very creamy and combines wonderfully with other fruits, including the most acidic. To give it more creaminess I use skyr yogurt or natural Greek, very thick and rich in protein.
