Coconut Mango Spinach Smoothie

Coconut Mango Spinach Smoothie

This Coconut Mango Spinach Smoothie can also be easily turned into a complete meal replacement if you include the optional extra healthy fillers such as oats.  

You can also easily convert this smoothie into a protein shake by including the optional natural plant based protein such as nuts or seeds.  

I actually came across Amber’s blog a long time ago while searching for a good homemade chocolate recipe.  So I was very pleased when she shared this gorgeous green smoothie recipe with me to share with you today.

Coconut Mango Spinach Smoothie

Today I am sharing a green smoothie that is KID approved.  
 
I always test out green smoothies on my kiddos, because if they like them, well, then that’s a successful recipe in my opinion.  
 
My daughter told me it tasted like a milkshake, so yeah!  I hope you enjoy this recipe too.

Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup frozen coconut milk cubes
  • 1 cup fresh cut and frozen mango*
  • 1 1/2 cups filtered water
  • 0.8 ounces of fresh organic spinach (about 1 1/2 cups) OR if you run out of fresh greens, add 2 scoops of Amazing Green Powder for an extra healthy green boost.
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon hemp protein powder

Instructions

Add the above ingredients to a blender and blend until well incorporated.

Notes

  • Freeze mango at least 2 hours.
  • There are a number of ways to make this smoothie.  If you don’t have the time to freeze the coconut milk and the mango, you can just use ice (about 2 cups), 1 cup coconut milk and 1 cup fresh mango. And you can add in your favorite protein powder.  I happen to love hemp.  Don’t like maple syrup? A few drops of stevia would work great, as would honey or coconut nectar.

  2. Amber, this sounds so delicious! I’ve been working on a mango smoothie lately too. I love how you use coconut ice cubes! Brilliant!!

  3. Thanks Heather! Love the coconut ice cubes too. Great to mix in with water and fresh fruit. It really makes it creamy! I had a smoothie this morning with avocado, those avocados REALLY add to the creaminess factor.
