After Valentine’s Day heavy chocolate and sweets intake, I am bringing you guys a Fresh Mango Smoothie recipe.
It’s Aniko from Place of My Taste and I am back here to share another great, colorful, healthy (and easy) recipe today. This is hands-down, one of the easiest smoothies to make AND it tastes like a drink from the islands. As a matter of fact, you could probably convert this into a happy hour drink with a little rum- but let’s leave that out for breakfast or people might talk- haha! I like to buy frozen fruit so my smoothies are super cold. You can always use fresh fruit and reduce the water amount then replace that with ice too. If you aren’t crazy about an ingredient just switch it out for something you DO like.
Smoothies are so fun and easy – and a perfect place to get creative. I often switch out water for coconut water (BONUS: this is packed with electrolytes) or almond milk if I want it smooth and creamy. You can also always add a bit of yogurt if you want it to be richer and thicker.
This Fresh Mango Smoothie is an awesome and healthy start to your day.
- 1 cup mango cubes
- 1 cup pineapple cubes
- 1 peeled kiwi fruit
- 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- 1 tablespoon lime zest
- 8 ounces water
- Add all ingredients to your high powered blender, ninja, or bullet.
- Blend on high for 1-2 minutes.
- Pour into your favorite glass or to-go cup and enjoy!
You can substitute ingredients with your favorite fruits. Don’t be afraid to get creative!
A lot of times, I add baby kale or spinach to my smoothie to get an extra veggie in for the day. Try this Green Goddess Smoothie Recipe if you want to switch things up. Adding greens to your smoothies can be really delicious and help you feel healthier! That green goddess smoothie has some ingredients that you probably have around anyways- so give it a try! Smoothies are also my kids’ favorites and my favorite way to make my boys to eat their greens and veggies.
As always, thanks so much for reading and be sure to visit my blog at Place of My Taste where I feel so grateful to be able to share how I like to live and eat beautifully… so you can too!
