Pretty Delicious Mango Beet Banana Smoothie with Coconut Milk
Summer is a great time to enjoy a cool, refreshing, and nourishing treat such as this Pretty Delicious Mango Beet Banana Smoothie with Coconut Milk. The name says it all. I use frozen mangos, beets, bananas, and some unsweetened coconut milk (almond milk works well too!).
When ripe, peel the mangos and bananas, then freeze them. I roast beets covered in foil in a 350 degree oven for about an hour, cool, and peel off the outer skin. I use beets in sautés, salads, and even chocolate cake and freeze the remains for smoothies. A little beet goes a long way and, in addition to its nutrition, beets add a pretty pink color to your smoothies.
Blend all ingredients in a high speed mixer, such as Vitamix to reach desired consistency. If you are lucky to have any left overs, you can freeze them as popsicles to be enjoyed another time. Enjoy!
