Most Saturdays, I want to have a special breakfast. You know, it’s the weekend, I have worked hard all week, and I love to prepare for my husband something that is easy but still delicious. And it’s the time when we both actually get to have breakfast together, so I want it to be special. Here’s the deal! Ayurveda recommends to eat food that is en season, so I was inspired to prepare this delicious Mango and Maca bowl recipe.
What I normally do is to plan ahead and buy what I need for my “Saturday homemade brunch” beforehand so on Saturday, when I wake up, I have every ingredient ready to go in the pantry or the fridge and I devoid myself from making excuses and just having ummm….whatever. I also make sure I follow my Ayurvedic Food Guidelines to eat the foods that are good for my Dosha or Ayurvedic Constitution.

I love granola, it’s my all time favorite. And I adore pairing it with a smoothie… if you have eaten açaí bowls you know I am talking about that smooth fruity texture that you get by mixing the fruit with a little bit of non-dairy milk and that goes below the granola.
And, have you heard about Maca? Well, it is like the 8th wonder of the world!
It is so packed with benefits that you must give it a try! For this Saturday, though, since we are working out later in the day, I picked it specifically because it provides you with vitality and strength improving sports performance and energy. I love it!
Well, I have also been experimenting a little bit with exotic fruits and I really like Mango, so I gave it a try and it came out DELICIOUS, plus it’s in season!!! My friend, Mango is so healthy and easy to make you won’t even believe it
So here is the recipe of Mango and Maca bowl recipe. My suggestion: if possible, try to choose all ingredients organic 🙂
MANGO AND MACA BOWL
- Blend the Mango, the Maca powder, and the non – dairy milk until smooth. You can add more milk if you want it less thick.
- Pour the smoothie into the bowls.
- Top each bowl first with ¼ cup of granola each, and then add the rest of the ingredients.
