Mango & Squash Smoothie Recipe
Who doesn’t love a good mango? Not only are they scrumptious, they’re also packed with potassium, fiber, vitamin A, vitamin B6, vitamin C, and magnesium. Mangos can be too sweet in a smoothie, so we use butternut squash to balance them out.
The bee pollen may seem random, but it is essential during allergy season. While it may seem counter-intuitive, bee pollen is actually great for curing seasonal allergies. It reduces histamines (aka the stuff that makes you sneeze, sniffle, and cough). It is nature’s Claritin. Bee pollen is safe for young children. However, if your child is under 5, you can check with your child’s pediatrician first. When buying bee pollen, make sure it is local. It has to be from a nearby area to counteract the pollutants in your air.
