Mango-Coconut Green Smoothie

Steve Adams "Trucker Steve"

With its light coconut milk base – no dairy here – this vegan green smoothie is utterly creamy and coconutty. Mango gives it a tropical vibe that makes it taste like a day at the beach.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup freshly washed spinach leaves, packed (I generally use packaged, pre-washed baby spinach)

  • 1 cup fresh or frozen mango, diced or cubed

  • 1/2 medium banana

  • 3/4 cup light coconut milk

  • 1/2 cup orange juice

  • 1/2 cup ice cubes

  • Optional additions: 1 tbsp coconut butter (this adds a bit more coconut flavor, plus fiber and a little protein
