Chill Cherry Mango Smoothies


One of my favorite ingredients for banana-free smoothies is frozen mango. It offers creamy body and an amazing sweet, tropical flavor that is delicious with just about any red fruit: strawberries, pomegranate, raspberries, and definitely cherries. These simple cherry mango smoothies have just 4 healthy ingredients, and a scrumptious sweet-tart taste.

This recipe was shared with us by Choose Cherries and the Cookin Canuck, along with some interesting tips for getting better sleep:

  • Drink a glass of tart cherry juice, or enjoy one of these cherry mango smoothies before you go to bed for a week. According to the research, tart cherry juice can help reduce the severity of insomnia and improve sleep efficiency.
  • Turn off computers and gadgets an hour or two before bedtime – the screens can emit blue light that suppresses the sleep hormone melatonin, leading to late night wakefulness.
  • Work in some daily exercise to lower stress levels and improve sleep patterns. Just make sure to allow enough time to come down from your fitness high.
  • Head to bed a the same time to help set your biological clock that controls rhythms for wake and sleep.

  1. What a surprising combination! Sounds like a combination I would totally try! I love bananas, but I would like some alternatives to my banana base, so this is a “Must Try”. #laceyslegacy
