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