Yogurt and Mango Nutrition

This yogurt and mango snack, dessert, breakfast, etc could be a great addition to your diet! Yogurt also spelled yoghurt is a fermented dairy product that is rich in calcium, proteins, vitamin D and B12, potassium, magnesium, probiotics, and other healthy nutrients. Yogurt is a nutrient-dense food with high digestibility, bioavailability of nutrients and contains lactic acid bacteria, which helps gut microbiota. Mango is a great fruit to include in your diet. It is rich in protein, fiber, Vitamin A, B, C, E, and K, copper, folate, niacin, potassium, riboflavin, manganese, thiamine, and magnesium.

Pair foods for better absorption

For optimal benefits, we pair yogurt with other rich nutrient foods where nutrient absorption is increased. In this case, we are pairing the yogurt with mango for a great snack option! We use fat-rich yogurt as the basis for better nutrient absorption. Our intestines absorb certain vitamins (fat-soluble) such as Vitamin A, D, E, and K when they are paired with a fat source. This snack is optimizing the nutrients you are eating by binding them together for better absorption.

Boost Yogurt Nutrients with Homemade Yogurt

We use our own home-made yogurt for this snack recipe. It is extremely easy and quick to make your own yogurt and not eat all the added sugar and chemicals that you find in store-bought yogurt. Here is our recipe. Check it out!

Tastes like heaven

The sweetness of the mango is combined with yoghurt which makes this snack appealing even to people who don’t enjoy eating yogurt that much. It also makes it a great snack and dessert for kids who look to satisfy their sweet tooth. If you are a mango lover, you must check out our mango chip recipe HERE. It is our by far best mango recipe that everyone enjoys. Yes, you read it correctly, I haven’t heard one single person to not like the mango chips. I make them for birthday parties, gatherings, pot-lucks, school events, and what not. Everyone is a big fan of it!

Frozen Mango

Some people have asked me if they can use frozen mango for this recipe instead of the fresh one. The answer is – absolutely! Sometimes frozen fruit has more nutrients preserved compared to fresh fruit. Or when mango is not in season and you can’t find it in the stores, frozen mango is a great way to top your yogurt with. You are still binding the yogurt nutrients with mango ones for a great nutrient’s absorption.

When to Eat It

My family enjoys this snack for breakfast (yes! I pump my little chicks with protein early in the day), after exercise (great for muscles), or as a quick snack prior to dinner. I personally enjoy eating this snack after I come home tired from work and hungry to eat something. It is really easy to put together in a matter of minutes, and I enjoy the cold refreshing yogurt taste. I am also a sweet lover, so having the mango as the topping helps me feel even more satisfied.
