Strawberries stabilize blood sugar levels, so it helps keep me from getting a sugar low before supper time.
Want to know how that works?
It’s because strawberries contain an antioxidant that halts the activity of an enzyme from breaking starch down into simple sugars.
With fewer simple sugars entering the bloodstream, blood sugar levels are more stable, as are your corresponding insulin levels. For healthy snacking, make strawberries a part of your diet on a regular basis.
Both the coconut milk and mango give this smoothie a tropical flavor that’s perfect for summer…
I used coconut milk to make this smoothie extra creamy, but almond milk is a good substitute if you don’t care for the taste of coconut milk.
Coconut milk has medium chain triglycerides, which increase your HDL (good) cholesterol levels. It’s also high in vitamin B, and is a great dairy substitute for vegans.
The mango lends this smoothie a tangy and refreshing flavor.
Mangos are packed with beta-carotene, which play a protective role against cancer. They also contain high levels of vitamins A and C, which support healthy eyes and skin.
In addition to keeping you cool, this smoothie will keep you feeling full for hours! It’s exactly what you need to quell your hunger pangs while enjoying a little taste of paradise.
