Mango is the gift of summer and it is rich in complex carbohydrates, dietary fiber, beta carotene, vitamin C and many other antioxidants. This thick creamy banana- mango smoothie with Greek yogurt and low fat milk could be an ideal breakfast as well as post workout option.
We are not going to add any extra sugar in this smoothie as that may increase the carbohydrate load. Use perfectly ripe mango and banana to sweeten up the smoothie. If you do not get Greek yogurt, hung curd can be used in place of that. To make hung curd, put normal curd in a muslin cloth and let it sit overnight in the fridge. By the morning all extra water would be drained out and the creamy curd would be remained which can be used in making the smoothie.
Addition of chia seed is completely optional. Also, if you want to add some crunch to the smoothie, you can top it with some roasted nuts and seeds of your choice. The milk and Greek yogurt already makes the mango smoothie a protein packed one. If you want to increase the protein content of it, you can add one more scoop of mango or vanilla flavored protein powder to it.
