tropical mango smoothie recipe

despite the fact that september conjures up feelings of fall, it won’t feel like fall in southern california until mid-october at the earliest. and after a long day of thrifting, i need a little pick-me-up to cool me down. enter the smoothie.

normally my smoothies involve fruit and soy milk, but today i got adventurous and added ginger, lime, and coconut milk to the mix. it’s dairy free, full of potassium and vitamins a & c, and–most importantly–delicious. i used frozen fruit and even my ginger is frozen {it’s soooo much easier to grate that way}, but if you have fresh stuff, by all means use that, just toss in a few ice cubes.

recipe

whole banana
fresh or frozen mango chunks {about one cup}
fresh or frozen strawberries {half a cup}
lime juice {1 tsp}
grated ginger {~ 2 tsp}
soy milk {or milk of your choice}
coconut milk {optional, 1/2 cup}

blend, adding more soy milk if needed to keep it blending. then enjoy!
