This mango coconut smoothie with turmeric and lime is not too sweet, but slightly floral and aromatic from the perfectly ripe mango, a bright clean layer of flavor from all that fresh lime juice that wakes up your taste buds, a little tropical creamy thing happening thanks to the coconut milk, and some anti-inflammatory love for your bod from the bold and vibrant turmeric.
Even though the first day of fall is literally right around the corner, I’ll still start some of my mornings with healthy and vibrant smoothies. Especially when they’re loaded up with immune boosting good stuff like vitamin C, anti-inflammatory turmeric and the good-for-you fat of sweet and creamy coconut milk.
Plus, sometimes as the days grow shorter it helps a little bit to have something that looks (and tastes) like sunshine in your glass 😉
This blood orange sunshine ginger mango smoothie is made with juicy blood oranges, sweet ripe mango, bright lemon, zippy ginger and hydrating coconut water. The perfect in-between-seasons smoothie! Full of sweet and bright flavor and good for you vitamins and minerals.
So techinically, it’s spring, right? But technically doesn’t mean much when it’s been cold, gray and raining for the past 3 weeks 🙄. I mean, you’d think mama nay nay would be just as ready as us to see the sunshine and the flowers, but I guess for now she has other plans.
But even if the sun isn’t shining, I’m going to pretend that it is by drinking all of these blood orange sunshine ginger mango smoothies. Because they are full of all the good fruit that’s in season right now, and pretty much = sunshine in a glass.
Which, second to actual sunshine is not a bad option.
Guys, I made a tropical green coconut smoothie, and it’s so good I just can’t keep it to myself! 😍
I shared this recipe on my insta stories a few weeks ago, but it’s become such a staple around here during our mornings (and afternoons… who doesn’t love a great afternoon snack?) that I decided to snap some pics and do a little post about it!
Because sometimes, in the middle of winter, when it’s really freaking cold outside for the millionth day in a row, you just have to pretend you’re on a beach somewhere, enjoying the tastiest tropical beverage you can imagine 🍹🍍🌿🍋
Hello (delicious) coping mechanism!
I’m not gonna lie, I am not exactly a smoothie goddess. I don’t alway have the easiest time finding the right ratio for them.. Let’s just say it’s not my forte in the kitchen. Sometimes I even sense a little hesitation when I ask my hunny if he wants me to make him a smoothie in the morning.
But I’ve been practicing. And practice makes perfect, right? So this pretty green number? Well it’s been winning me all kinds of points.
So if you can trust me with your fruit and greens after that not-so promising introduction, I think you and your hunnies will love it too.
