It feels like a cheat day when you go on drinking this, but this delicious drink comes with added health benefits so there’s no need to feel any guilt!

Our smoothie comes with three succulent fruits: mango, apricot, and strawberry. The mangoes come as a natural sweetener, so you don’t have to worry about adding sugar to this one. It contains dietary fiber that will help you along with digestion. They are like strawberries, when ripe, can provide a saccharine flavor to the smoothie. Strawberries are also a great source of Vitamin C, helping to boost your immune system. But wait, all you’re seeing is sweetness? Don’t worry! The apricots are there to balance things out. Apricots are more tart. This tartness will give the drink just the perfect undertone to get that fresh fruit flavor. They are also high in potassium which is great for regulating blood pressure. The best part about this trio combo? All three fruits are rich in antioxidants, which will protect you from most illnesses.

It’s a refreshing treat in itself that will energize you for the whole day! You can drink this delightful smoothie and pair it with our equally healthy Low-Carb French Tortilla Toast recipe.

Commonly Asked Questions

What can I substitute for yogurt if I don’t have it on hand?

You may substitute using coconut cream or buttermilk. Coconut cream is great for vegans and for those who are lactose-intolerant. But if you have neither of those on hand, you can always try to add a bit more low-fat milk to the smoothie. These options will still yield the best creamy and delicious flavor!

How do I make my smoothie thicker?

The mango, apricot, and strawberry will do the thickening trick for you! But if you want to get that classic, thick smoothie texture you’d get from diners, we recommend blending the mixture using frozen mango, apricot, and strawberry. Using frozen fruits are also great in that they’re easy on the wallet, and you can have your favorite fruits in any season!
