OUR SPIRITUAL FOOD
Show love to everyone even if they don’t deserve it. What goes around comes around. Therefore it is not your job to encourage
negativity.

Welcome back to today’s post, today’s topic is based on Apple Mango Smoothie.

Mangoes are juicy stone fruit (drupe) from
numerous species of tropical trees
belonging to the flowering plant genus
Mangifera , cultivated mostly for their edible
fruit. The majority of these species are
found in nature as wild mangoes.

Nutrients
The energy value per 100 g (3.5 oz) serving
of the common mango is 250 kJ (which is 60 kcal), and that of the apple, mango is slightly
higher (330 kJ (which is 79 kcal) per 100 g).

Fresh mango contains a variety of nutrients, but only vitamin C and folate are in
significant amounts of the Daily Value as
44% and 11%, respectively.

Mango is used to make juices , smoothies,
ice cream , fruit bars, raspados, aguas
frescas, pies, and sweet chili sauce , or
mixed with chamoy , a sweet and spicy chili
paste.

While,
Apples are often eaten raw. The whole fruit including the skin is suitable for human consumption except for the seeds, which may
affect some consumers. The core is often not eaten and is discarded. Cultivars bred for raw consumption are termed dessert or table apples .

Apples can be canned or juiced. They are milled or pressed to produce apple juice , which may be drunk unfiltered (called apple cider in North America), or filtered. The juice can be fermented to make cider (called hard cider in North America), ciderkin , and vinegar. Through distillation, various alcoholic beverages can be
produced, such as applejack , Calvados, and apfelwein. Apple seed oil [62] and pectin may also be produced.

Apples are important ingredient in many desserts, such as apple pie , apple crumble , apple crisp and apple cake.

RECIPES
i. 2 Medium Apple
ii. Ripe Mango Chunks (fresh or frozen)
iii. 3/4 cup Milk or Plain Greek Yogurt
iv. 1½ teaspoons Honey (For those who prefer sugar you can use little of it)
v. Ice Cubes or you refrigerate it.

PROCEDURE
1. Wash and cut the apple into a clean blender, remove the core and dice into pieces. If you like, peel the apple before cutting it.

2. Add the mango, milk, honey or sugar (which ever one you are to use) and ice cubes in
to the blender.

3. Blend until smooth puree. Pour in the prepared smoothie of the mango and the apple into serving glass and serve chill either by refrigerating or by adding ice cubes.

N/B: Serve as a healthy breakfast drink. It can be served in the afternoon during hot summer days.

The Skin or peel of the Apple is well loaded with nutrients. so, unpeeled apple is used in this recipe instead of the peeled type, however if you still don’t like the apple skin
in smoothie , you can peel it before using.

Happy Consumption!
