Sweet Mango Smoothie

Sweet Mango Smoothie Recipe

Mango shmango now’s the season! Living in the tropics can be so much fun because of the wide variety of tropical fruits you can easily get, and then turning the fruit into a yummy in your tummy smoothie!

This smoothie recipe will fill your belly and it has all the essential power ingredients you need to kick start your day well.

It’s super simple and easy to make.


1 small ripe mango (I use fresh mangoes but you can also use frozen ones)

1 frozen sliced banana

1 ½ cup non-diary milk (almond and cashew milk are my top two favorites) 

3 tbsp granola of your choice (I use salted gula Melaka granola from Amazin’ Graze)

1 tsp flax seeds

½ tsp hemp seeds

½ tsp maca powder

*optional 1 pitted medjool date

Place every ingredient into a power blender and blend for 30 seconds. Serve and enjoy!


Flax seeds, hemp seeds and maca powder are three power ingredients that I use to give an extra boost in almost all of my smoothies. Each are packed with nutrients and has its own set of health benefits. Flax seeds are rich in fiber and it helps regulate my bowel movement. Hemp seeds are a great source of plant-based protein, as a vegetarian I find this to be very beneficial. And lastly I use maca root powder for vitamin C and iron.

I began to feel an inner shift…

Without purpose in my life, I honestly don’t think I would be here today.

Purpose was what made me quit my high-income flight attendant job of ten years.

My job gave me the opportunity to globe trot, I enjoyed both the solo travels and travels with friends. I was living the life of my childhood dream … until, after ten years, I wasn’t.  Despite living a “glamorous” lifestyle, there was still this emptiness inside.

I began to feel an inner shift; my heart was no longer in alignment with my truth. My spirit and soul were depleted of energy and vitality. I questioned my life’s purpose.

I decided it was time to follow my heart’s calling.

The “how” was unclear, and that scared the living daylight out of me. But my purpose helped me move from fear to courage.

I can’t tell you how much I resonate with this quote, “Courage is not the absence of fear, it’s the ability to act in the presence of fear.”

My passion for yoga and sharing the gifts of yoga was what gave me meaning and purpose. It felt as if my spirit and soul had found their way home. And this was the beginning of my soul-fulfilling journey on my path of yoga.

Living in alignment with who you really are is truly liberating for the spirit and soul. You wake up in the morning with a sense of purpose that supercharges your body, mind and heart. You feel ready to take on life’s challenges.

And yes, there will be days where you feel stuck and maybe even paralyzed by fear. So what then keeps us going? I believe it is the focus on your purpose that aligns with your heart that aligns with who you truly are. 

During the time of my transition, from having decided to quit my flying job to going into full time teaching yoga, I refused to let my fears and limiting beliefs stop me from living my truth. Instead, I chose to trust my inner guide and in the Higher Power. I allowed myself to be guided and supported by the gifts of grace. And in doing so I felt peace in my heart, and an energy and aliveness that catapulted me towards my current reality.

Here is a simple practice you can do to overcome your fears, doubts and worries. This is something I practice everyday. It is this practice that enables me to move forward in life with courage. It was and still is my hearts soothing balm.

This is the practice of GRATITUDE.

Everyday, first thing in the morning and before going to bed at night, think of three things you are grateful for. Simply bring to mind and heart three things you appreciate. And give yourself a few moments to be still as you gradually shift into a state of heartfelt gratitude.
