Mango, coconut and lime smoothie



Refreshing, tangy and perfect for when you're peckish but not quite ready for a full meal. This smoothie just reminds me of warm balmy mornings, sitting in the sun after a swim or gym. I like smoothies to taste great without extra powders and this packs 10g protein as it it - but if you like to add a scoop of protein, go ahead.


Total time to make : 5 minutes

Servings : 2



Ingredients


1 mango, fresh or frozen*

1 banana, fresh or frozen*

125ml coconut milk (not the tinned kind)

170g greek yogurt

Pinch of salt

1 lime, juiced


Desiccated coconut/hemp seeds to top - optional



Method


  1. If you're using any fresh fruit, cut it up into chunks and add everything except the lime juice into a blender/NutriBullet

  2. Blitz until smooth, pour into glasses and squeeze half a lime (per serving) into each glass, finish with any extra toppings

Good to know:


  • If mangos aren't in season, go for frozen mango chunks. Picked and frozen at their ripest, frozen fruit will add a thick, slushy like consistency - and saves on chopping! 1 fresh mango is roughly 140g frozen chunks

  • I like to keep 1 fruit frozen 1 fresh (so if you've used frozen mango, use a fresh but ripe banana). This stops is being so icy that you can't taste the flavours)

  • Salt is a bit of an odd addition but it's not a typo - it helps cut through the sweetness and enhance the flavours. Just a pinch is great
