Come summers and right from our closets to food preferences, everything changes. We make a shift from piping hot and comforting soups to cooler drinks. We drink more water and opt for seasonal, citrusy fruits which are available in abundance such as watermelon, muskmelon and the king of fruits - mangoes. The yellow, luscious goodness of mangoes is just too hard to resist. And the sheer versatility of this fruit makes it all the more popular.
From chutneys and pickles to salads and shakes, mangoes can be relished in plenty of ways. Yet in summers, when we need to stay hydrated all the time, a chilled glass of mango smoothie can do wonders for us. A rich yogurt or milk-based preparation, blended with fruits and veggies of your choice, smoothies are a favourite during summer season. You can add as many fruits as you like along with nuts, seeds, milk and chocolate. A glass full of smoothie can be a wholesome way to kick-start your day with energy. It is wholesome, delicious and too easy to prepare right in the morning!
