Mango Milkshake (Vegan)

Ahh…mangoes. How I love thee. The continuous winter weather we are having here in the Rocky Mountains  has me dreaming about a week at the beach in the warm sun. So while I can’t transport myself and the rest of the family to the tropics at the moment (hopefully one day soon!), I can make a beach worthy milkshake.

I love milkshakes, but haven’t had one in years from a restaurant due to the ingredients found in commercial milkshakes. This “milkshake” is made up of only five ingredients with the base being coconut milk. It is a good fix for any sweet tooth you may have or if you just want to treat yourself to something special. I often make this drink for my daughter as a quick, healthy snack before swim lessons or a trip to the park.

Mangoes are loaded with potassium and Vitamins A, C and E. The addition of banana to this drink adds a boost of fiber and manganese to the drink. Coconut milk is rich in lauric acid which has anti-viral properties that help to boost the immune system.

Add to Vitamix or Blender:
1 can coconut milk (this brand is BPA free)
2 mangoes, peeled and flesh removed  (2 cups frozen mangoes will also work)
1 frozen banana
1 cup ice
2 Tbsp. coconut sugar

Blend on high for 2 minutes until smooth and creamy. Serve in a glass and enjoy!

Makes 4 servings.

  1. Hi There Laura,

    Looks absolutely delicious! Can you believe it has been in the upper 70's here in Northern California (78)! I was seriously sweating yesterday while working in the garden. A milkshake sounds great right about now. :-)

    What a fun, yet simple recipe. I can tell my kids would love this. And my husband LOVES mango, as do I. Thanks for a great recipe!

    Hugs,
    –Amber

  2. I'm jealous of Amber's weather. I'm a northern CA native and have been away for almost 2 years. :) When we get some decent produce where I live now, we will definitely try this. Otherwise, we'll have to make a long road trip to buy some frozen mangos! :)

  3. Upper 70's?! So jealous!! I am dreaming about Spring right now. I can't wait to play outside with the kiddos and start gardening again. I think I have to wait until next month to enjoy warmer weather.

    I have found frozen mangoes at my local Costco Maureen. Hopefully you don't have to travel too far!

  4. Now if summer could just get here faster! Delicious milkshake!

  5. Yum! Looks and sounds fabulous!!!

  6. Thanks for the tip about the coconut milk brand-I worry about that and try to seek out companies that are BPA free. This milkshake looks great. I used to make mango lassies a lot but haven't recently. Your version sounds great with the addition of banana too!
