Mango Banana Coconut Smoothie

Mango Banana Coconut Smoothie

As I don't usually eat breakfast, smoothies are an ideal way to get needed nutrients to start your day. Fruit is essential for most of my smoothies, along with coconut milk or almond milk and other juices, such as carrot juice and cranberry juice.

This smoothie is one of my tastiest yet and very easy to whiz up in a regular blender — no high speed action needed to make this one that comes together in a few minutes. It's very creamy, with those distinctive mango and banana flavors.

Ingredients:
  • 1 frozen banana (2/3 cup sliced)
  • 1 cup frozen mango pieces (1/2 large mango)
  • 3 pitted dates, chopped
  • 2/3 cup coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 1/2 cups water, or as needed
Instructions:
  • Prepare the banana the night before. Peel, slice, and place on a small parchment lined tray. Pop into the freezer.
  • The same can be done with the mango, but I used frozen mango pieces for convenience.
  • Toss all of the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth, adding more water if necessary. If you like, add some freshly squeezed orange juice for a citrusy flavour.
  • Serve cold.
