This is one of my favorite flavor combinations. It reminds me of when I lived in Hawaii and had all the local fresh wild mangos, pineapples and coconuts I wanted. It has a very subtle yet tropical and refreshingly fragrant taste and smell. It will make you want to layer on suntan oil and lay out on a beach all day. Well at least it does for me. It’s not often that I get to buy fresh organic pineapple. It is fairly expensive and I try to buy mostly local foods from my local farmer’s market. I do miss the beautiful tropics though and these treats bring me right back. Please choose organic whenever possible.
For the Smoothie:
1 1/2 Cups Young Coconut Water
1/2 Cup Fresh Young Coconut Meat
2 TB Coconut Oil/Butter, Virgin
1 1/2 Cups Fresh Pineapple (Chopped)
1 TB Lime Juice
1/4 Cup Agave Syrup
2 Cups Frozen Mango
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 Cup Ice Cubes
To make this first blend all of the room temperature ingredients in your blender first until fully blended and smooth. Then add the frozen mango and ice cubes and blend again until creamy, thick and frosty. Pour into tall serving glasses. Makes 2-3 Servings. You will need at least 1 small pineapple, 1 young coconut, and 1 bag of frozen mango for this.
