Mango Coconut Smoothie
Oh baby! Why didn’t I make some more? Now looking at these pictures I am craving more yummy tasting drink. My Venezuelan roots are very present with thisÂ Mango Coconut Smoothie. It’s thick, creamy and oh so satisfying. The Mango flavor is so refreshing while the coconut gives out the creamy part. I added a little lemon juice to balance both flavors and give it a tangy edge.
See, in Venezuela mango trees are everywhere. It’s like oak trees here in the States. Since there are mangoes everywhere we try to find things to do with them. There’s mango cakes, jellies, ice creams, muffins and more. Some people have a mango smoothie everyday. Just blend the mangoes in water together into a drink. This is why I decided to mix with a some coconut and take it to a whole new dimension.
It’s funny, but while I was making thisÂ Mango Coconut Smoothie, I didn’t know how much coconut milk to add to my Blendtec, so I started adding little by little and when I checked on the drink, I made ice cream!! it was delicious but I had to keep on my smoothie mission and added more milk. If you would like to make ice cream, just add a little less liquid and that’s it.
Â This Saturday, have morning jog, take it easy and then have some yummyÂ Mango Coconut Smoothie. Put one of those little cocktail umbrellas on top and invite some friends over. The secret to this wonderful drink is to use frozen mangoes. You can use fresh ones but if you add ice, it will water them down and loose the flavor. So freeze your mangoes beforehand. I always have them waiting for me in the freezer.
I hope you enjoy this deliciousÂ Mango Coconut Smoothie at home. If you do, please come back and let me know how it comes out.
