Juicy mango and creamy coconut milk add delicious flavor to this healthy and delicious smoothie packed with vitamins and nutrients.
Did I make this recipe for St. Patrick’s Day? No. Do I love the fact that it just happens to line up with the time of year that everyone is looking for green recipes? Yes! What I really love is the fact that this rich, creamy and luscious smoothie is bright green thanks to spinach and nature, not creepy bottles of food coloring and chemicals.
Coconut milk is not only incredibly flavorful but it provides heart-healthy fats and a silky texture that will have your kids asking for seconds. In fact, my 18 month old drank 24 oz of this bad boy the other day!
Each serving provides over 16 grams of fiber and 17 grams of protein so you’ll have lasting energy all morning long. Perhaps you’ll even be able to pass on the neon green donuts in the break room.
Your straw is waiting.
Place all ingredients in a high speed blender and puree until smooth.
To prepare glass, pour 1/4 cup or so of chia seeds on a plate. Run the rim of a glass under running water then carefully dip the top of the glass onto the plate until the rim is covered in chia seeds.
Pour the smoothie into the glass and serve.
If you are working with frozen fruit you may need to add a bit of liquid to get the smoothie blending - I like to add water or a bit more coconut milk to reach the desired consistency.
