Mango Smoothie

I like big mangoes

In the summer we drink lots of smoothies.

Mostly because it’s the only way I can get my little one to eat/drink anything that isn’t pasta.

So I thought I would start sharing some of our favorite recipes beginning with my favorite one.

Mango Smoothie

3 cups diced mango

2 cups coconut water

2tsp vanilla extract

Squeeze of lime

Pinch of sea salt (I use pink Himalayan salt)

(If you want it colder you can add ice cubes)

    Sounds simple enough. Adding the ingredients to my shopping list. And some Malibu to the recipe ;)

    Mangoes are a big hit in our house too, except pasta of course ;-), but ‘Timan’ likes to eat them, instead of drinking, especially the really ripe ones. Gah. Maybe I have to give it another try with your smoothie. But I doubt I can find the pink Himalayan salt here. :-)

      My kids love to eat mangoes too but I prefer smoothies.

      You don’t have to use the Himalayan salt. Sea salt will work out you can leave it out altogether.

    Thanks for sharing this. Using coconut water is something new to me. I usually just use water.

    Yum! I have never bought coconut water but I will have to grab some. Looks delish!

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      Coconut water is great. Lots of potassium and electrolytes. Similar to gatorade but without all the fake crap.

    Look at you with your fancy Himalayan salt! I’m with Stasha…I’m gonna add Malibu.

    My littlest one LOVES mango – I’ll have to try this. I wonder though, where does one find pink himalayan salt? I’ve never even heard of it…

  10. This sounds absolutely delish – and something that even I couldn’t screw up. I just might try it. YUM!

    My little one loves fruit. I’m sure she would love a smoothie too, I’ll try it! :) Thanks!

    That sounds delicious! We always make a lot of smoothies in the summer if for no other reason that they are healthier than the milkshakes we are all craving!

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      We don’t drink milkshakes but we do have lots and lots of smoothies. My baby asks for them all the time. It’s so cute.

    Pure yum! Love this! XO

  15. This sounds wonderful! They would be great on a hot Carolina afternoon.

  16. Laura says:

    That sounds so good! We drink (Eat?)(Drink?) tons of smoothies, but they’re usually berry based. However, my kids love mangoes, so this is a great! Thanks – we’re going to try it. (And I love the above commenter’s Malibu suggestion!)

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      We do a lot of berry based ones too since we get fresh berries from the farmer’s market.

      Malibu would be delicious in this recipe.

    Sounds so good! I love mangoes! My husband is the smoothie maker at our house, but I’ll have to see if I can sway him from his usual extra-creative, but not always so tasty blends. :)

    My 7yo asks for smoothies for breakfast every day! Usually I use frozen strawberries or blueberries.

    This sounds so awesome! I’ve never made anything with coconut water. I’ll have to try it since your recipe for a pom martini was super scrumptious last week! Thanks for linking up, Jessica!

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      Glad you enjoyed my pom martini recipe.

      I use coconut water a lot in the summer for smoothies.

  22. Tonya says:

    Yum! Not a fan of mango or coconut water, but still yum!

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      Maybe the one I post next Sunday you will like better. It won’t have either of those ingredients.
