Whenever I see bunches of mangoes in grocery stores, I know spring is finally here. That’s because mangoes are in season starting in mid-March, and the mango season lasts all the way through mid-July. Sprouts has plenty of mangoes in stock and ready to be enjoyed.
I believe nature sends us the fruits we need most at the exact time we need them. Mangoes are no exception.
With cold and flu season still in high gear, along with the start of allergy season, it seems like a lot of us have the sniffles these days.
The good news is that mangoes are loaded with vitamin C and vitamin A, both which aid in supporting a healthy immune system.
To channel the newfound fruit of the spring, I created this wonderful tropical smoothie recipe, which you can enjoy for breakfast, as a mid-day snack, or even for dessert.
How To Make a Mango-Coconutmilk Smoothie
To make this tropical mango-coconutmilk smoothie, first you’ll need to gather all your ingredients.
First and foremost, you’ll need plenty of tropical fruits. Dice a fresh mango and pineapple, and gather a ripe banana (freeze overnight for the best results). The banana will add a delicious creaminess to the smoothie.
And of course, you’ll need your dairy-free beverage of choice, which for me is So Delicious® Coconutmilk. It’s creamy and, as the name implies, so delicious. The coconut flavor is subtle but definitely there to help you fully channel those tropical vibes.
I suggest freezing the diced mango and pineapple, along with the banana, overnight, then combine the frozen fruits with the So Delicious® Coconutmilk in your high speed blender when you’re ready to make it.
If you only have fresh fruit, add 5-6 ice cubes to your blender to help make the texture more like a frozen smoothie vs. fruit juice.
Smoothies are best enjoyed immediately. This recipe is enough for two smoothies.
To add a little fun to your mango-coconutmilk smoothie, add a few extra chunks of frozen mango after blending it. The mango chunks will serve as ice cubes to keep your smoothie cold, and when you’re done drinking your smoothie, you’ll enjoy the delicious leftover mango chunks as a fun treat. Mmmm!
All About that Coconutmilk
When shopping, be sure you purchase an unsweetened coconutmilk variety. The mango, pineapple, and banana already offer much sweetness, and there is no need to use a sweetened beverage too.
So Delicious® Organic Coconutmilk is certified gluten-free, Non-GMO Project verified, Kosher, certified vegan, and USDA organic. Danone North America, the parent company for So Delicious®, is a Certified B-Corporation.
Happy dairy-free deliciousness – cheers!
