Every day I drink a lot of mineral water, necessarily non-carbonated. I go for juice much less often. When I do, I prefer home-made ones to the various types of boxed juice, syrups and beverages in the shops. Isn’t it better to buy fresh fruits and make your own shakes and smoothies by yourself?
Beverages, syrups and juices at the shop contain loads of sugar even those marked as ‘light’. In many products the actual fruit content is lower than what you’d expect – even if there’s a 100% sign on them.
There is nothing better than preparing juices and drinks at home by yourself. You know exactly what’s in them and you can mix a whole lot of different vegetables and fruits. Just pure health.

How to prepare mango and banana shake.
Pour the milk, yogurt, cinnamon and ginger into the blender. Add the sliced banana and diced mango. Blend until the it all becomes homogeneous and gets a smooth consistency. Serve the chilled shake with whipped cream on the top and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. So easy 🙂
Good to know when making fruit shake.
I used fresh mango, because it has a more expressive taste than canned ones. If you cannot get any though, you may go for canned ones.
If you want to add a larger amount of bananas, you may do it but make sure to increase the amount of milk accordingly.
