Is eating healthier part of your New Year’s resolution? If so, you might need to change up your diet and there is no better way to start than with a breakfast makeover. In fact, this recipe for a mango and strawberry smoothie bowl may be just what you need for your fresh start.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and eggs, bacon, and sausage aren’t the most nutritious options. Instead try a delicious, nutritious smoothie bowl. Smoothie bowls are too thick to drink through a straw and are usually enjoyed with whole berries, seeds, granola, nuts, or other additions. Though you can make a smoothie from practically any fruit or vegetable, a mango and strawberry recipe is a particularly smart idea.
Mangoes are full of vitamin C, vitamin A, and vitamin B6, as well as fiber, and potassium. They make for great breakfast food because they give your immune system a boost and they help with your digestion. The strawberries are also full of antioxidants that can keep your heart in tip-top condition.
