It’s good for the body and mind to start with a light nutritious meal, whatever your first meal may be, for some it’s breakfast, for others it’s brunch.
What we need is something rich in fruit carbohydrates and fiber, but free of proteins and fats, which are hard to digest and burden the metabolism, thus slowing it down, taking with it the physical and mental power which are most needed starting the day.
Here’s a solution, a delicious and simple meal to make your day immediately as it’s so good by nutrition and by taste.
Ingredients (for 2):
- 4 ripe khakis
- 1 mango
- a pinch of vanilla powder (optional)
- ¼ coffee spoon of cinnamon (optional)
- coconut flakes and dried fruits for decoration (optional)
Cut the khakis, check for seeds and remove them if there are any, peel the mango, and cut both fruits into smaller pieces. If khaki is very ripe, there’s no need for cutting as you can pour it into the blender.
Put both fruits in the blender, add vanilla and cinnamon (if you wish), and blend to a homogenous mass.
Pour into glasses, decorate with ingredients that suit you, and enjoy!
Some extra ideas:
- seasoning: add a bit of fresh grated or powdered ginger to make it spicier;
- if you don’t have mango in stock, you can replace it with a banana.
This is a great first meal of the day option as it contains the fruit-based carbohydrate calories you need starting along with fiber which is mandatory for digestion. What’s more, by taking in the fruit sugars you also decrease the possibility of any other sugar cravings appearing throughout the day.
