- *Almond extract fits mango taste and makes it a little bit spicy, but it may seem too “bright” for some people.
- **We recommend opting for granola mixes, that contain less or no sugar at all. In our opinion, granola mixes, containing honey or coconut blossom nectar are better choices, because they contain more microelements in comparison with white sugar.
