This refreshing and heart-healthy mango smoothie
is an excellent source of vitamins, including A, B6 and C – flavonoids
Fresh mango is abundant in potassium, yet low in sodium. Potassium helps assist in maintaining a healthy heart rate and regulating blood pressure. Mangoes contain a high level of fiber and vitamins which help to lower serum cholesterol levels. Fiber will help with weight-loss and may also help reduce the risk of heart disease. Also, mangoes are a great source of vitamin-B6 (pyridoxine), which helps control homocysteine levels within the blood, which may otherwise be harmful to blood vessels resulting in CAD and stroke.
2 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
2 mango - peeled, seeded, and chopped
1 banana, sliced
3 tablespoons cream of coconut
Mix ingredients in blender and serve immediately. If desired, garnish with lime.
Makes 4 servings.
