07 Jul Banana & mango ice creams – kids will love it! Summer magic!
Bananas are one of the most widely consumed fruits in the world for good reason. They are an excellent source of vitamin B6 and contain moderate amounts of vitamin C, manganese and dietary fiber. Some scientists believe that the banana may have even been the world’s first fruit.
Mango contains a variety of nutrients, especially vitamin C and folate (44% and 11% daily value). The antioxidant zeaxanthin, found in mangoes, filters out harmful blue light rays and is thought to play a protective role in eye health.
