mango and maca bowl recipe

Summer is here (!!)

And now it’s the perfect time to have fresh fruit bowls prepared and topped with some awesome superfoods.

This mango and maca bowl recipe is one of my favorite breakfast ideas for a hot day at the pool.

Mangoes are a potent aphrodisiacal fruit

Fruit bowls

Fruit bowls are an easy-to-prepare, yummy breakfast or snack.

Because digestion is at the core of the decisions I take regarding what to eat, I make sure I prepare these recipes for the summer season, when the intense heat tends to enhance naturally our digestion.

Specially if you are spending the day outdoors, fruit bowls can be immensely refreshing and help lessen the Pitta humor in the body.

For this mango and maca bowl, I use ripe mangoes.

According to Ayurveda, mangoes are a sweet and heating fruit, yet they have a sweet Vipaka or post-digestive effect. When they are yellow and juicy they have the potential to balance all doshas.

Mangoes are also aphrodisiac and energizing.

I mean, looking at their beautiful color can brighten any day!

Improve your digestion

To enhance the digestive process when eating this mango and maca bowl, I add spices. They vary depending on how I’m feeling emotionally, my dominant dosha at the time, and environmental factors, like the weather.

In this recipe, since I have a high Vata dosha currently, I used a bit of fresh ginger root, turmeric root — to enhance the color and give me some antioxidant properties —, and cardamom.

If your dominant constitution is Kapha ➜ add a pinch of cayenne.

For Pittas ➜ add cardamom, a drop of rose water, and fresh mint leaves.

What’s important is that you experiment with flavors!

Add some crunchiness with seeds, coconut flakes, or even granola if your digestive fire in on point.

Maca (Lepidium meyenii)

Then, there is maca.

Maca, known as the Peruvian ginseng, increases vitality and strength levels, improving sports performance and energy.

As I regularly work out, maca is a superfood I often add to my oatmeal, teas, or fruit bowls.
