It’s definitely been smoothie weather, especially over the weekend when the high school soccer players were trying out for new teams for next year. I’m amazed at how those kids can play in the heat and it was my job to keep my daughter hydrated. She had lots of chocolate coconut water (she loves Zico) after tryouts and before the midday tryouts she had a smoothie. Here’s a refreshing version of the soccer smoothie for you and yours to try. It’s refreshing even when just lounging on a 90 degree and muggy day.
Mango Coconut Smoothie
- 2 cups coconut milk
- 1 banana
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
Blend first 3 ingredients (so coconut oil won’t freeze in chunks when frozen fruit is added). Then add the next two ingredients, blend and enjoy.
- 2 cups frozen mango
- option: 1/2 teaspoon chia seeds or 1 tablespoon chia gel (1 tablespoon chia seeds to 9 tablespoons water – refrigerate in airtight container up to a week)
Makes 2 large servings.
