Pretend you’re on a tropical island with this delicious Mango Coconut Smoothie recipe. It’s dairy-free, vegan, and protein packed to keep you going.
Travis and I have a trip planned to Hawaii in about a month, so I have everything tropical on my mind. Mangoes were on sale at Whole Foods this weekend for 4/$5, so I immediately grabbed a few because usually they are at least $2.50 each.
Mangoes always remind me of summer. My mom used to buy a giant box of them at Costco and we would go through them like candy, just the two of us. If you love mangoes just as much as we do, then you’ll love this Mango Coconut Smoothie.
This smoothie is a variation of my Basic Protein Shake recipe. It tastes incredibly refreshing after a super sweaty workout. If you’re able to plan ahead, frozen mango gives this smoothie the best texture, but otherwise fresh mango will still be delicious.
This recipe calls for vanilla protein powder, and you’re welcome to use your favorite brand. You may also substitute 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt for the protein powder; however if the yogurt is plain, you’ll want to add about a bit of honey or maple syrup for additional sweetness.
Now if only I was lounging on a beach chair and someone magically transformed this Mango Coconut Smoothie into a Mango Sunrise, that would be perfect!
