If you’ve been keeping up with me, then you know that I’m big on breakfast meals. For me breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so I make sure my breakfast is healthy, delicious and more importantly balanced.
I normally have a smoothie every single morning. Sometimes I make smoothies as a breakfast juice or as a smoothie bowl. Smoothie bowls are fun way of enjoying a smoothie with lots of add-ons and various toppings such as dried nuts, seeds and fresh fruits. Its like a complete meal.
I’ve got a tangy, sweet smoothi that truly get’s the saliva glands on hyperdrive, a Mangoberry smoothie bowl. Made with frozen mango, banana and gooseberries AKA golden berries. Gooseberries are similler to tomatillos but they are golden or yellowish in color and has a sweet and tangy flavor. These can be eaten as it is or added to make juices. Best yet, used as a toppings on desserts, oat meal or smoothie bowls and you can even make jams or spreads. It’s a tangy treat which is packed with nutrients just like any berry.

Lets dive into the recipe.
- 01 large mango (frozen chunks)
- 02 bananas
- 06-07 gooseberries
- about 150ml to 175ml plant based milk – you can adjust as per the thickness you require
- 01 tsp of maple syrup
- 3x3Granola original granola
- Bohemian quest black chia seeds
- Ceylon_Gooseberry Gooseberries
- Mint leaves
- Sweet orange slices
- You can use any type of banana to make smoothies but I personally prefer ambum banana because it gives a perfect texture.
- If you want your smoothie little thicker then reduce the amount of liquid that you add or add more powders or seeds like protein powder, Acai powder, flax meal, chia seeds or simply more frozen fruits.
- Add all the ingredients with 1/2 of the milk into a blender and blend until smooth. (You can also add some protein powder if you have any)
- Scrape down sides of the blender (you will have to repeat this a few times) and add the remaining milk, blend until it becomes smooth and creamy. The texture of the smoothie should be in soft serve consistency, like a thick purée or the texture of McDonald’s ice cream.
Scoop out everything into a bowl and add choice of your toppings and enjoy.
