Here’s another combination I tried recently and loved. There is nothing better than using up the contents of one’s fridge and freezer and creating something delicious in the process!
- Flesh of one mango – frozen
- Flesh of one small coconut – frozen (4 frozen coconut cream cubes would work perfectly with this as well)
- 1 cup Pure Harvest Coco Quench (or whatever milk alternative you prefer. Regular Full Cream, Almond, Oat or Coconut & Almond milk would work as well)
- 1 large handful baby spinach
- 1 small handful mint leaves
- Juice of 1 lime
- Chia seeds for topping (optional)
I let the frozen coconut flesh and mango thaw a little bit and then added all ingredients and blended together to create a lovely, thick and almost sorbet-textured smoothie. Top with some chia seeds if you like.
Coconut & Mango Sweet Green Smoothie
I made this smoothie for breakfast this morning and enjoyed it so much I had to share.
It was particularly filling which was exactly what I needed after a 7.4km run this morning to start the day. I also used frozen berries for the recipe so the end result was almost like eating ice cream, perfect for while it’s still quite warm in the mornings!
Frozen raspberries would work well also if you want a lower fructose option and it would taste just as good if you omit the protein powder too.
- 4 ice cubes
- half a frozen banana
- 4 frozen strawberries
- 1 heaped tablespoon coconut protein powder (vanilla would work also – I had some 180 nutrition protein powder leftover from some samples)
180 Natural Protein Superfood – 100% natural ingredients and gluten and sugar-free! I prefer the coconut flavour over the chocolate.

- 1/4 cup rolled oats
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1 cup (250ml) So Good Unsweetened Almond Coconut Milk
So Good Unsweetened Almond Coconut Milk – low in calories and sugar and delicious also.
Blend all the ingredients together and enjoy!
