Yummmmm…..Mangos were looking delicious so I concocted this creamy, delicious blend with fresh basil.
I know it might sound like a funny combo but it was delicious, and also really good for the bod!
Basil contains some really beneficial volatile oils that have anti inflammatory benefits – a quality that is great to have after you’ve conquered a tough workout session. It’s also great for your gut health.
Tropical fruit like mango, pineapple and banana are higher in fruit sugar than berries and apples. I typically either blend the two, or go with just one to keep my smoothies balanced while still enjoying the sweetness.
I boosted the immune supportive benefits with some fresh squeezed lemon, and garnished with a little basil and mango wedge.
Try it out!

Need some help with healthy eating? When planning for the week, I think about:
- 2-3 breakfast options I like
- A few entrees that could double as dinner or lunch
- A couple smoothie ideas that have complimentary ingredients to give you variety with your greens
- A snack option like homemade protein muffins or an easy to make trail mix for days you’re just hungrier and want a little more to eat.
- Round out your plan with a couple of staple sides that you would like to have on hand daily like a big mixed greens salad and some rice, quinoa or easy to grab sweet potato chunks…
……and then make your grocery list around that.
