Mango coconut smoothie

So far smoothies and popsicles have been constant in my house and this mango coconut smoothie is an example.

Mango and coconut smoothie

Here is another one of our favorite smoothie recipes. It is perfect for the weather ahead as this is really refreshing and tasty. I actually used a tablespoon of turmeric to color the smoothie too. It gave it a vibrant yellow color and it added some natural antioxidants. I love turmeric so where ever I have a chance to use it I do.

Because we make a lot of smoothies I keep all sorts of frozen fruit stacked in my freezer at all times. I even keep some ripe frozen bananas in there that I use to sweetened my smoothies with.

I have just finish summer I from the science courses I was taking, however, I am starting summer II on Tuesday. School is kicking my behind but I will stick it through. It is hard not being 18 anymore!

So for those that don’t know, I have just started working on my green tea cooking book. I have so many recipes I want to add I don’t know which ones to include and which ones to discard. So hard to decide…

Anyhow, I leave you with this mango coconut smoothie that I hope you will like. Lately I have been adding coconut cream and milk to most of my smoothies and frozen popsicles. I just love coconut!

Enjoy!

  13. This looks amazing! I love love love coconut cake. And those chips on top?! So happy that I have some now. Yay! :)

  14. I am new to your blog-I haven’t tried any of the recipes yet but I am excited too! I do have one question though-I noticed you use olive oil in your recipes. What kind do you use-extra virgin, pure, light, etc. Or does it really matter? Could I even use coconut oil instead? Thanks and I can’t wait to try some of your recipes! :)

    • For baking I use light or pure olive oil bc the extra virgin is kind of strong flavored. For most of the recipes, if not all, you could also use the coconut oil no problems. Thanks so much for visiting!

  15. I would love to try to make this since there are very little cake mixes where I live. However, they don’t sale coconut flavor in the Netherlands. Is there any substitutes?

  16. I made it and it is GREAT!

  17. Do you think I could use whit whole wheat flour in this recipe? Or is the pastry flour necessary?

  18. Thanks! It turned out great! Wish I could have found the Coco Lopez cream of coconut but it was still delicious :)
