Mango Basil Smoothie


When smoothies are made right they are like the perfect little black dress for your insides. Full them with sugary yogurts, nutrient deficient ice, or processed junk and they turn into your worst enemy. But today I plan to arm you with the perfect body friendly breakfast. Instead of using ice I use frozen coconut water, frozen mango, and avocado to thicken the smoothie. 

Mango Basil Smoothie

Ingredients:
  • 1 mango, peeled and chopped (frozen if desired)
  • 1/4 avocado
  • 1 small cucumber
  • Handful of basil
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 1 cup coconut water, frozen in ice cube trays

Toss all ingredients in a blender and whirl on high until smooth. If it seems to thick just keep adding coconut water until you reach your desired consistency.

P.S. aren't my new travel cups so darn cute? 3 of them for $15 at Costco! Can't wait to bring you more fun recipes in them!
