Total time: 
Serves: 2 smoothies
 
This smoothie has notes of toasted coconut in addition to juicy orange, creamy mango, and sweet banana for a healthy take on the classic creamsicle flavor..
Ingredients
  • 1 cup canned coconut milk
  • ½ cup plain kefir
  • 2½ cups frozen mango chunks
  • 1 cara cara orange, peeled
  • ½ frozen banana
  • 2 tablespoons toasted, unsweetened, coconut
  • 1 tablespoon hemp hearts
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Place all of the ingredients into the canister of a high powered blender in the order that they are written. Blend, starting on low and gradually going up to the highest speed, once you hit the highest speed blend for 30-60 seconds. Pour into glasses.
Notes
Cara Cara oranges are a type of navel orange with a pinkish flesh. You can feel free to use a regular navel orange in the recipe.

You can swap the kefir for plain yogurt and the hemp hearts for chia or flax seeds, if you want.

Add a teaspoon of spirulina or a handful of your preferred greens (I like spinach in smoothies) to bump up the health factor.
