The other day I walked into the kitchen and one of my housemates had me sample her smoothie. I just about died and went to heaven. It was creamy, sweet, and refreshing! It had only two ingredients: mango and full fat coconut milk.  I wanted to drink the whole glass, but I exercised some self control and ran to the store to buy the ingredients so I could make one myself! Since it was close to dinnertime, I decided to throw in an avocado for some extra fatty goodness. When the husband came home I gave him a glass of this concoction, and when I asked what he wanted for dinner,  he told me he was stuffed, like he ate a whole rack of ribs. Score for me since our kitchen is a sauna in the summer!

I love this smoothie because it’s delicious, gluten free, sugar free, easy to make, and apparently filling enough that you can have it for dinner if you’re feeling too lazy to be in the kitchen! 

Try it and let me know what you think.

Makes two servings!

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe mango
  • 1 1/2 cans of full fat coconut milk, find it here,
  • 1 avocado
  • A few fresh mint leaves

Directions:

1.Slice the mango into small pieces and place it in the freezer. My housemate told me about this trick – thanks Ani!

2. Once they are frozen, throw ’em in the blender with the coconut milk, avocado, and mind leaves.

3. Serve right away!
