Benefits

Bursting with B Vitamins, this smoothie will make you smile for many reasons, not least of all the delicious taste! B vitamins are essential to keeping one's mood stable and are invaluable in helping us cope with everyday stress due to their soothing effect on the central nervous system. Rich in antioxidant minerals and vitamins, the mango will provide you with a whopping 50% of the RDA for vitamin A and almost 100% of your vitamin C!

The fresh banana and the banana powder are both packed with potassium - this important mineral is responsible for stablising blood pressure and conducting messages within the central nervous system - if your daily life involves a lot of physical work, getting enough potassium is important as this can help to stop you from tiring too quickly.

Finally the cashew nut butter will give you a healthy dose of essential fats and the maca powder is rich in antioxidant minerals and immune boosting vitamin C - this smoothie is delicious whilst being highly nutritious!
