Mango and Coconut smoothie
Smoothies are very regular at my household. My kids love them and these always pack a lot of nutrition.
I normally add some sort of veggies to them like fresh spinach, kale etc but this time around I didn’t. What I also do very often is freeze these. The kids love them and they actually think they are eating some sort of a treat. It is a win win for me and them :-)
Here I have added a few of the other smoothies I have had in the past. A little bit of creativity with these and they could be the best thing to have to start your day!
Papaya and Coconut Smoothie
Blackberry, Banana and Mint Smoothie
Dr. Oz Morning Green Smoothie
Chocolate, Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie
I will soon start coming up with other variations. We have them at least 4 times per week so it is time to start with new versions.
I hope you try this one, because it is sure to be refreshing, unique and super nutritious.

Place all the ingredients, except cinnamon, in a blender and blend until smooth. Sprinkle each smoothie with some cinnamon
Nutrition facts calculated based on the recipe giving 4 servings and without the honey.
this looks so good Miryam, never thought of a mango coconut smoothie combo. YUM! I’m trying to drink more smoothies too, I had 2 this week, and will have 1 tomorrow.
I thought that was paprika on your smoothie. :D
This sounds great! Nice and summery and UN-winter like. Ugh.
I love smoothies too but always make the same darned raspberry avocado one because of the pathetic availability of fruit. :( I’m so sick of it!
Can’t wait to see some more of your variations!
I love the recipe but my concern is high saturated fat in coconut milk.
