Powerhouse Coconut Mango Smoothie

A healthy smoothie that contains a “Powerhouse ” of nutrients and vitamins. Using the fresh coconut water from a young coconut helps to reduce the calories, it has a nutty flavor and it’s loaded with potassium; not to mention electrolytes.  The nutty taste complimented the fresh ripe mango that is loaded with vitamin C. I added kiwi for its refreshing flavor and most of all Kiwi is amongst one of the top nutrient dense fruits. I added a touch of nutty sweetness by using peanut butter.  This is such a rich breakfast drink – it will keep you filled for hours.

I hope you will go buy some young coconut, mangos and kiwis and make this awesome drink; you will not be disappointed.  I would love to get your feedback, comments and questions – use the comment feature at the bottom of the post.  Thanks for visiting.  Enjoy.

Author Yasmin R

Ingredients

  • 1 cup fresh coconut water
  • 1 cup crushed ice
  • 1 ripe mango sliced (discard seed)
  • 2 ripe kiwis peeled and cut in two
  • 1/2 lime juiced
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients in a blender. Blend until you achieve a smoothie texture - about one to one and a half minutes.

  2. Pour into your favorite glass, sip and enjoy.

Recipe Notes

Many fine supermarkets now carry fresh young coconut with the harder outer-shell removed.  Use a very sharp butcher knife to cut off the top of the coconut leaving a hole at the top to pour out the water.  Depending on the size of the coconut you will get about 1-1/2 cups to 2 cups water.  The fresh coconut water taste so much better than the ones out of the box or can.  It's worth the investment.
