Sip on this Magic Mango Smoothie

This is something you don't often see: a smoothie without “superfoods”. You don’t always have to buy expensive Acai Powder, Wheatgrass Powder or any other fancy powders or seeds. It isn't always about the “high end” nutrient-dense ingredients. Sometimes you can treat yourself with yummy fruits you love. My Magic Mango smoothie is made with my favourite fruits, so feel free to alter the recipe to make your own “Magic Smoothie”. You can also use any leftover fruit you have lying around. That is the beauty of smoothies. There are no rules. You can go crazy and experiment. Sure, sometimes experiments go wrong - but that's okay! I've told you about my brown/ black smoothies, and this is clearly what you don't want your smoothie to look like!

Though I love smoothies, but I still try not to drink too much of them. Smoothies are a treat, even though there are packed with nutrients and even though they are packed with “superfoods”. They mainly consist of carbohydrates and can be really high in sugars. I really try to keep my sugar intake as low as possible. Don't go crazy on eating sugar -  eating an excess amount of sugar (not carbohydrates) can lead to a host of health problems.
