Mango Smoothie Recipe

Last night I tried this delicious, refreshing combo:  MANGO + COCONUT WATER + LIMES

 Ingredients (Serves 1):

  • 1 ripe mango (skin removed & chopped into pieces) I especially love champagne mangoes
  • 11 oz coconut water
  • juice of 2 limes

How to:

  1. Combine ingredients in the blender
  2. Blend for a minute (or until all mango is liquified)
  3. Enjoy!

HEALTH BENEFITS:

Mango – high in vitamins A & C. Also a great source of potassium and fiber.

Coconut Water aka Nature’s Gatorade – naturally high in 5 essential electrolytes (sodium, magnesium, calcium, potassium, phosphorus)

Limes – high vitamin C content

Nature’s Gatorade

Forget those neon colored, artificially flavored sports drinks and switch to coconut water already! The naturally sweet and delicious liquid inside of the well-known tropical treat has 15 times the¬†electrolytes (specifically potassium, sodium, magnesium, calcium and phosphorous) of a typical sports drink! Whether you’re trying to replenish after some serious physical activity or perhaps (hopefully not) recovering from some stomach ills, this is my very highly recommended natural choice. Wondering where to find this splendid beverage? It’s definitely at your nearest health food store, but it’s also quite likely in stock at your local CVS these days. I think the word has definitely gotten out!
