So today I officially enter the world of food blogging…… very exciting for me of course. And I hope all of you out there will love this beautiful golden mango smoothie recipe. As this is a blog dedicated to recipes low in histamine or “histamine friendly” as I like to say, I hope all of you out there suffering from histamine intolerance (HIT) will enjoy this recipe as much as me and my kids do.
First off, you need some beautiful ingredients. For this recipe I used about half a mango, if you don’t want to save the rest of the mango in the refrigerator you can either freeze the other half for a rainy day when you forgot to buy mango, and feel like a mango smoothie, or just feed it to your kids/or yourself of course 😉 Both of my boys love mango, so I almost never have any mango leftover which I need to save/worry about going bad in the refrigerator. I use dates to sweeten this smoothie, and the amount depends on the ripeness of the mango used. To achieve this beautiful golden color I add goji berries, just a small handful 😉 For some protein I add a bit of hemp seeds and some goat milk yoghurt (if you don’t like goat milk yoghurt you can add the yoghurt of your preference or simply leave it out. NB. not all types of yoghurt are equally well tolerated). As a lovely extra benefit the hemp seeds contains some healthy fat and some extra fiber.
As a main liquid for this smoothie I used almond milk. If you can’t have almond milk, you can simply switch it out with another type of milk that fits your individual diet, other options are (but not limited too) coconut milk/water, hemp milk, macadamia nut milk goat milk, cow milk….. When using plant based milk remember to check the label for any added ingredients on your no-no list. There is often added guar gum (a thickener) or other restricted E numbers like emulsifiers to plant based milk. I use an organic non-sweetened almond only containing water, almonds and sea salt. You can of course also make your own 😉
