As part of my yoga journey this week I entered into a fruit fast. For three days I feasted on only fruit; apples, bananas, oranges, mangoes, avocados, strawberries, blueberries, coconut, etc.
This is not my first fasting experience but it’s always amusing to find how anxious I can get before the fast begins. “Will I be starving? Will I feel exhausted? Will I be able to work, yoga, think?!” Each time I discover the same thing, it’s never as hard as I believe it will be! Fasting is an interesting process. It challenges you both physically and mentally as it cleanses your body from the inside out.
During these three days Mango Avocado Smoothies have been my go to. Besides tasting amazing, the avocado gives me the energy I need to stay focused and make it through the long work day. Simple but delicious.
- Combine avocado, mango, coconut milk, mango juice and mint into a blender and blend until smooth.
- Garnish with a sprig of mint and enjoy!
note: if the smoothie feels too thick add a little water and blend, until you reach your desired consistency
