Fuelling Your Summer with a Refreshing Protein-Packed Mango Smoothie Bowl


The sun is shining and it still feels like summer. While enjoying the outdoors and soaking up Vitamin D, it's important to keep our bodies nourished and energized. Whether you're hitting the beach, going for a hike, or simply lounging by the pool, maintaining a balanced diet is essential. In this blog post, we'll explore the importance of protein in your summer diet and share a delicious recipe for a Protein-Packed Mango Smoothie Bowl that will keep you feeling refreshed all season long.


The Power of Protein:

Protein is a macronutrient that plays a crucial role in maintaining and repairing tissues in the body. It's especially important during the summer months when we're often more active and our bodies are constantly on the move. Incorporating an adequate amount of protein into your diet can help with muscle recovery, support your immune system, and can even assist in weight management by promoting a feeling of fullness. With all these benefits in mind, what better way to boost your protein intake than with a tasty summer recipe?


Protein-Packed Mango Smoothie Bowl:


- 1 ripe mango, peeled, pitted, and diced

- 1/2 banana, frozen

- 1/2 cup Greek yogurt

- 1/2 cup almond milk (or any preferred milk)

- 1 scoop of Fitlyzen vanilla protein powder

- 1 tablespoon chia seeds

- 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup (optional, for sweetness)

- Toppings: sliced fresh fruits, granola, shredded coconut, chopped nuts



  1. In a blender, combine the diced mango, frozen banana, Greek yogurt, almond milk, protein powder, chia seeds, and honey (if using).
  2. Blend on high until the mixture is smooth and creamy. If the mixture is too thick, you can add a little more almond milk to achieve your desired consistency.
  3. Once the smoothie is ready, pour it into a bowl.
  4. Arrange your desired toppings on top of the smoothie. Get creative with colorful fresh fruits, crunchy granola, nutty goodness, and a sprinkle of shredded coconut.
  5. Take a moment to admire your beautiful creation, then dig in and enjoy!


Why This Recipe Works:

This protein-packed smoothie bowl is an ideal summer meal for many reasons. Firstly, it contains the protein your body needs for muscle repair and growth. The addition of protein powder provides an extra boost, making it an excellent post-workout option. The natural sugars from the mango and banana provide a quick energy source, and the chia seeds add a dose of omega-3 fatty acids and fiber for a satisfying, filling meal.


Greek yogurt not only contributes to the creaminess of the smoothie but also provides probiotics that promote gut health—a crucial aspect of overall well-being. Almond milk is a hydrating base with fewer calories than regular milk, making it perfect for those aiming to maintain or lose weight. Plus, the array of fresh toppings not only adds vibrant colours but also a variety of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals to further enhance the nutritional profile of this delicious bowl.
