A quick yet delicious healthy breakfast idea is here… Mango Dragon Fruit Oatmeal Bowl. By now you may already know how much I love mangoes. Fresh sweet mangoes will start disappearing from market very soon. So I am trying to enjoy my mangoes as many ways as I can 😉
# There is a believe that Buddha used to do his meditation under Mango Tree.
# Fresh Mangoes is most eaten fruits around the world. (Now I don’t feel weird lol)
# In some religion, mango leaves are must for wedding and it count as a sign of reproduction.
# Mango tree is a long living tree. The oldest mango tree is 300 years old and that tree still bear fruit. (What an investment)
# Mango contains 83% water of their weight.
# Mango is a Super fruit. Yes it is.
# There are 500+ varieties of mango available.
To make this Mango Dragon Fruit Oatmeal Bowl you do not need a lot of time. Literally I took 2 minutes to microwave, 5 minutes to absorb liquid and 1 minute to mix & decorate. I made my mango puree while my oats were soaking in milk. so no extra time to make puree. Well how long you take to eat is totally up to you 😉 . Also you do not need a lot of ingredients to make this oat yummy. If I say more specifically, you actually need 4 items. Mango, your choice of milk, oats & Dragon fruit. But you can use more toppings like blueberries, any nuts or nut butters, protein powder etc.
My Mangoes were so sweet so I didn’t use any extra sweeteners but some cinnamon powder for its benefits.
This Recipe is vegan recipe but you can use your choice of milk (I use Almond milk). Also it can be gluten free if you choose gluten free oats.
That means this Mango Dragon Fruit Oatmeal bowl recipe is :
Refined Sugar free
On the above picture you can see 4 stage of prepping my oatmeal. first one is before microwaving my oats. after 2 minute warming up I cover it with a lid for 5 minutes. On second picture you can see how it looks like after 5 minutes. On third picture, I pour mango puree on my soaked oats and fourth picture shows how it looks like after mixing up.
Toppings & Decoration :
My Oat was already flavorful so I keep my toppings very simple. I add Mango & Dragon fruit ball & chopped walnut as topping. Are you thinking how I cut my fruits in ball shape ! very simple, I use Melon Baller. You can get mine here =>Melon Baller.
Little story time
Back in Bangladesh, we never bought mango by dozen, always by Basket. Eating rice with mango and milk was my dad’s favorite. My mom or Aunt (who ever have time) used to make mango and milk mix in a large pot. That mango mix was thick and chunky. For this mix , mango need to be very ripe that you can mashed with your hand. I can’t remember any night without that mango & milk mixed in summer.
