Mango Summer Smoothie Bowl

It’s officially summer – Mangoes are in season! Treat yourself to this cold and creamy smoothie bowl perfect for a hot summer’s day. A naturally sweetened tropical blend of mangoes and coconut to kick start your mornings, a hint of fresh mint and that splash of coconut water to keep you well hydrated. Top it up with a bunch of fresh fruit and granola and you’ve got yourself a quick and healthy breakfast in no time.

PREPARATION TIME: 5 minutes

INGREDIENTS (serves 1)

  • 1 ripe mango (cubed, frozen)
  • 1 small banana (chopped, frozen)
  • 1/4 cup coconut water (young green coconuts)
  • 1/4 cup tender coconut flesh
  • 1 tablespoon oats
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon flax seed/ pumpkin seed powder*(optional)
  • Small bunch of mint leaves


METHOD

Blend all the ingredients for the smoothie base in a high speed blender for a few minutes. Pour it into the bowl and top it with mango chunks, berries, granola, etc.

Note: Frozen fruits work better with smoothies, they instantly make it cold and much creamier in consistency as well. But if you don’t have any, fresh works just as well! 



Ever made an overload of smoothies that you couldn’t finish up in one go? A creamy fruity smoothie works great frozen too! Freeze the smoothie in popsicle moulds and you have a healthy dessert packed away in the freezer for all those midnight cravings!

If you give this recipe a go, I’d love to see how it turned out. Leave a comment below and share your pictures on Instagram using the tag #thecookbooklife!

Stay healthy!
