Benefits of mixing fruits and dairy

Many times we have been told that it is not advisable to mix milk and fruit, but it is that they are two very important foods, at a nutritional level, for our body. Everything has its positive side and its negative side. We will take a closer look at it in this section.

On the one hand, fruit provides us with important vitamins such as vitamin A, group B, C, E, K, among others, and essential minerals such as calcium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, magnesium, zinc, etc. and of course fiber. Dairy products, such as yogurt, provide vitamins A, D, B12, among others and minerals as important as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, sodium, potassium, etc.

As we can see, it is a mixture of excellent nutrients for our body, but there is a fine print that not everyone knows. There are fruits that are not recommended to be mixed with yogurt and other dairy products because it could cause some adverse effects such as bloating, gas, diarrhea, etc.

Acidic fruits should not be mixed with dairy, in addition, some of them, such as pineapple or kiwi, have an enzyme called bromeliad and come into contact with dairy. can cause poisoning. That is why we are going to feel bad suffering consequences such as diarrhea, vomiting, bloating, gas, stomach pain, etc. Not always and not to everyone, it is also true.

Why is mango good?

Mango is a very good fruit for our body, and it is not very common in our homes, since we prefer to opt for cheaper ones, such as strawberries, grapes, apples, oranges, pineapple, kiwi, tangerines, pears, etc.

The mango is native to Southeast Asia and is usually large with very juicy flesh and a hard bone in the center. Eating fresh mango gives us about 65 kilocalories per 100 grams, almost 13 grams of carbohydrates, 0,60 grams of protein, 1,8 grams of fiber and 0,45 grams of fat.

100 grams of mango provide 0,21 mg of vitamin A, 0,05 mg of B1 and B2, 0,66 mg of B3 and 37 mg of C. Regarding minerals, 100 grams of mango provide us with 5 mg of sodium , 12 mg of calcium, 0,4 mg of iron, 13 mg of phosphorus and 170 mg of potassium.

As we can see, its consumption is important, given the wide range of vitamins and minerals it provides us. All this, together with the nutritional values ​​of yogurt, make a perfect mix for dessert at any time of the year. And if we also add pure cocoa chips, grated coconut, mint, homemade jam, raspberries, nuts and the like, we enhance the nutritional values.

Mango and yogurt mousse dessert

Vegan version

Vegans and strict vegetarians do not consume products of animal origin and all of them include milk and eggs. This recipe for mango mousse and natural yogurt, right off the bat, is not vegan, but it can be transformed with a simple change.

To get this refreshing and rich dessert, we will have to manage to get a creamy soy or oat yogurt and that it be of natural flavor and without sugar. We say creamy to help when it comes to getting texture, firmness and fluffiness to the dessert.

Another ingredient that should be changed is milk, since skimmed milk will be needed. In our case, we will have to choose soy or oat milk, depending on the yogurt, and if it is from the same brand, the better, and if, in addition, we have already tried them and we like them, much better. This is how we avoid upsets. It should be said that the milk must be unsweetened.

Another change that would have to be made and that very few people know about is the gelatin. Currently it is very easy to find vegetable or synthetic gelatin, but gelatin of animal origin is still common. For those who don't know, gelatin, as well as many jelly beans, are made from cartilage and other animal waste.

how to keep it

Learning how to preserve this mango and yogurt mousse is important to know if we make just the right amount for the people who are going to eat it, or make something extra to eat it the next day.

In good conditions, this delicious and healthy dessert lasts a maximum of 3 days in the fridge. Of course, it is convenient that it is well covered, so if we are going to prepare mini jars, it is best to keep those jars in a glass container with hermetic closure in the fridge, but never at the door, since great changes in temperature are suffered there.

Another important detail is that these jars are not handled, but taken individually, the fact of handling the content with an unclean utensil or with your hands can contaminate the food and accelerate the decomposition process.

The fact that the content is covered is because there may be contamination inside the refrigerator. For example, a spilled sauce on the top shelf, a tomato that has been hidden among other foods for weeks and is already in the process of decomposition, among others. That is why we do not recommend napkins as a protection barrier, silver foil or plastic wrap. Just a hard lid with a tight seal.
