Mango Cashew Pudding

NUTRITIONAL NOTES

 

MANGOS: Rich in antioxidants to help protect against various types of cancers, mangos are also high in Vitamin C to help support the immune system.  Because of their high Vitamin E and Beta-carotene content, mangos can help clear skin ailments, both internally and externally.  Like papaya, they are rich in fiber and enzymes that help with digestion. 

 

CASHEWS: Not only do cashews have a lower fat content than most nuts, but over 80% is heart-healthy unsaturated fatty acid. Cashews are also high in copper and magnesium, the first vitally important in antioxidant defenses and energy production, and the latter helping with bone strength.
